Bob Dylan, Bjork, Arcade Fire, White Stripes among notable acts for 2007 Austin City Limits Festival lineup

This year’s Austin City Limits Festival lineup may dissapoint some longtime atendees, due to the high percentage of repeat performers, but for folks like me who have never been, it’s a perfect year to go. And it’s cheaper than any of the other big name festivals of a similar ilk and has a killer lineup.

I’d just like to say that I am proud of myself for not including Yo La Tengo in the title of this post. YLT are performing at ACL Festival, but apparently not everyone else thinks of them as the most important band in the world like I do, evidenced by the fact that their name is listed in print ads and banner ads in the smallest of the three font sizes, underneath bands that have been around for less than one tenth of the time YLT have been around. YLT have always been the tortoise to rock music’s hares, though.

Some acts of note:

Bob Dylan (!)
Bjork
Arcade Fire (!!!)
Wilco
The Killers
The White Stripes
The Decemberists
Spoon
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
Crowded House (!)
Lucinda Williams
Bloc Party
Indigo Girls
Damien Rice
Ziggy Marley
Peter Bjorn and John
Blonde Redhead
Steve Earle
LCD Soundsystem
Cross Canadian Ragweed
Yo La Tengo
Bela Fleck and the Flecktones
Ben Kweller
M.I.A.
Robert Earl Keen
Paolo Nutini
