Introduce yourself to this year’s lineup

Mattiel (Wed. @ 8 AM)
Mysterious and bluesy, Mattiel is a powerhouse of a band, and proof that garage rock is still thriving. It’s easy to get lost in the sultry vocals and even easier to keep coming back for more.

Cimafunk (Wed. @ 9 AM)
Look no further for your next party soundtrack: Cimafunk brings the life and the fire. His brand of Afro-Cuban funk is driven, creative, and incessant. Play his beats on full blast and enjoy.

Geese (Wed. @ 10 AM)
Fans of the indie rock revival will find their new favorite band in Geese. Don’t be fooled by their slacker aesthetic — the music is tight, and the vibes are immaculate.

Linqua Franqa (Sat. @ 8 AM)
Linqua Franqa dazzles with their unique indie-rap sound and socially driven lyrics. Stuck in a slump? Put on “Wurk” and you’re guaranteed to seize the day.

Fantastic Negrito (Sat. @ 9 AM)
Who would’ve known grunge and soul would go so well together? Fantastic Negrito’s wailing vocals and foreboding guitars create a soundscape full of passion and dirt.

Making Movies (Sat. @ 10 AM)
Perhaps one of the most unique groups around today, Making Movies is sensual, smoky, and seductive. Distorted guitars are buried under their Latin groove, colliding beautifully and urgently.
Gustaf (Sat. @ 11 AM)
Gustaf’s punk inspirations are self-evident. With drums like bullets and searing vocals, their music is perfect for cathartic release: artistic, erudite, and chaotic. Feel free to mosh.
About Studio 6A
The Studio 6A soundstage on the University of Texas at Austin campus was the birthplace of “Austin City Limits,” hosting the now-infamous 1974 debut taping with Willie Nelson, as well as the setting for history-making performances for its first 36 seasons, spotlighting hundreds of legendary artists and music innovators, including Ray Charles, Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Leonard Cohen, Pearl Jam, B.B. King, Foo Fighters and more. Studio 6A was officially designated a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Landmark in 2009. The final “Austin City Limits” episode in Studio 6A was taped in 2010, when the program moved to its current studio home for the last decade, ACL Live at The Moody Theater, in downtown Austin.
