Tomorrow the official lineup for Austin City Limits will be announced, so we decided to make our own predictions of the main bands that will part of this year’s festival. Let’s begin with the headliners:

Arcade Fire
Arcade Fire will definitely be one of this year’s headliners. With a new album released and with the previous shows they have offered, ACL will not want them out of their festival.

Coldplay
Most of this year’s lineups have been announced, and none includes Coldplay. The band is releasing their new album ‘Ghost Stories’ next month, so it is likely that ACL will have them as one of their headliners.

Paul McCartney / Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers / Pearl Jam
If they include Coldplay on the lineup I don’t think they can add Paul McCartney this year, but maybe Tom Petty will come back or perhaps Pearl Jam? We haven’t seen them lately on any major music festival.

Would be great but unlikely: Foo Fighters
Hopefully not: Outkast and Eminem

Other bands that could be included:

Jack White
Foster the People
The Replacements
Lorde
Beck
Chvrches
The Glitch Mob
Spoon
Broken Bells
Damon Albarn
The Kooks
Cage the Elephant
Warpaint
Chromeo
Calvin Harris
the 1975
Rudimental
Darkside
Blood Orange

Which other bands do you think will be included in the lineup this year?
