Austin City Limits has announced a late addition to its 2017 festival lineup -- Jay Z

Hova was announced late Thursday (May 4) after the rest of the festival's lineup was revealed that morning with tickets going on sale hours later. 

The two weekend festival in Texas' capital teased the Jay Z announcement with a somewhat cryptic notification to anyone with the official ACL app that quoted Jay Z's "Encore," asking, "Now, can I get an encore? Do you want more?" 

Soon after, ACL released a new lineup poster with the announcement "JAY Z hits Zilker Park this October."

The festival on Oct. 6-8 and 13-15 will also feature the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Chance the Rapper, The Killers, Gorillaz, Martin Garrix, The xx and more.
