AUSTIN -- The lineup for the 13th Austin City Limits has been announced, and it's stacked with big names from all music genres.

Rapper Eminem, American rockers Pearl Jam and newly reunited hip hop duo Outkast will headline the festival both weekends. Electronic musician Skrillex and DJs Calvin Harris and Zedd will also perform both weekends of the festival. Grammy-nominated New Zealand teenager Lorde will perform the second weekend of the festival only. American singer-songwriter Beck will also take the festival stage fresh off the heels of his first album since 2008.

Other big names on the lineup include Lana Del Ray, Foster the People, The Replacements, The Avett Brothers, Spoon, The Head and The Heart, Childish Gambino, Belle and Sebastian, St. Vincent, Iggy Azalea, Icona Pop and more.

A number of Austin artists will also play the festival, including Asleep at the Wheel, Ray Benson and Milkdrive, Emily Wolfe, Penny and Sparrow, Riders Against the Storm, Saints of Valory, Elizabeth McQueen and more.

Last year's festival featured an almost identical lineup both weekends, with just a few bands opting to play one weekend but not the other. This year, most of the lower half of the lineup features bands that will take the stage in Zilker Park for one weekend only, leaving aspiring festivalgoers with some choices to make before tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

Early bird passes for both weekends are sold out, but three-day passes will be available for $225 each. VIP passes and platinum passes are currently available for both weekends, as well as official travel packages. Single-day passes go on sale later this spring. Go here to purchase tickets beginning at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

Weekend one of ACL runs Oct. 3-5. Weekend two will take place Oct. 10-12.
