acl scratch off Austin City Limits 2011 lineup via scratch off cards...

Next Tuesday, Austin City Limits will reveal its 2011 lineup to the masses. But like many other festivals these days, the Austin, TX-based extravaganza is getting the fun started early by “leaking” a number of acts. While a game of trivia is not required, it does help to be in Austin resident, as the festival is revealing at least three acts each day via “Lineup Lottery” scratch off cards that can be found in Austin area businesses. For those living elsewhere, we’ll be keeping track of the progress in both this post and in our Festival Outlook.

Day 1: My Morning Jacket, Fleet Foxes, Empire of the Sun, Delta Spirit, & J. Roddy Walston and the Business

Day 2: Arcade Fire, Cee-Lo, Chromeo, Smith Westerns, & Hayes Carll

Day 3: Kanye West, Iron & Wine, Mavis Staples, The Head and the Heart, & Alexander

I think that is just that they were discovered on the first day of the scratch cards.

Actually all three names matching entitles the person with the ticket to VIP tickets.  I don’t think they designate mainstage acts in any special way.

Well, that too. But as I understand it, there are only two cards where all three names match and both reveal headliners. The remaining headliners will be announced on Tuesday.

 So are there no more 3 day passes for this festival?  It seems like everywhere but the northwest is landing arcade fire :(

Yes, 3-day passes are sold out. You can still buy 1-day passes for all three days though.

 my understanding is that it’s only a confirmation of all three names match, it wouldn’t be much for otherwise… not totally sure though.

It’s a headliner if all three names match. All acts listed on the scratch offs are playing…
