ACL Festival 2015 – Bands You Need To Know


Festival band pick lists are never easy. This list could quickly include 50 bands as there are that many great bands that will be playing at ACL this weekend. Since we will be providing a daily schedule starting tomorrow, this post is just a quick highlight of some of the bands you are probably not familiar with that are worth checking out.

We are all about discovering less-well known but really great artists so this is why this list includes great acts without a lot of recognition and non of the headliners. We are sharing a track or video from each artist and their name takes you to their website or Facebook page for more info. Check back in the next few days for a daily schedule.
