JayZ added to ACL Festival line-up

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Music lovers who have been saving their pennies should act fast at 10 a.m. to secure yourself a ticket to see bands like Gorillaz and Red Hot Chili Peppers. JayZ was added to the front of the roster Thursday afternoon.

Plan your vacations for Oct. 6 through 8 for weekend one, and Oct. 13 through 15 for weekend two. Do both if you have a lot of vacation time saved up because this year is going to be exciting.

Just this week the city released the results of the study of the impact of the 2016 festival. Both weekends totaled more than a $277 million boost for the city. That was 24 percent more than the year before. There were 75,000 people per day at the festival.

Want tickets? Check here at 10 a.m. for three day passes, which cost $255. One day tickets will be available later this year.

For comparison, Radiohead and Austin-local Willie Nelson were big draws in 2016.
