Austin City Limits officially announced the first half of its season 45 broadcast lineup of Tuesday (Aug. 27), and it’s jam packed with some not-to-be-missed performances.
This fall’s season premiere will kick off with a full hour of Austin, Texas, native Gary Clark Jr., marking his third appearance on the series. Additionally, the show will welcome two new artists making their ACL debut, H.E.R. and Maggie Rogers.
“Over the decades ACL has built its reputation on introducing the most original, innovative and eclectic music from every genre,” said ACL Executive Producer Terry Lickona in a statement. “Music fans love to discover artists and sounds they’ve never heard before, or re-discover artists and songs that have stood the test of time. There’s no better place to find them than Austin City Limits, and this season is a perfect example!”
The all-new installments will begin airing Oct. 7 on PBS, with full episodes available for a limited time following the broadcast at www.pbs.org/austin-city-limits.
