Depeche Mode, The Cure, Muse — this year's expanded Austin City Limits Festival will feature something of a European invasion with five of eight headliners at least partially coming from across the Atlantic Ocean.

Also among the list of headlining performers announced Tuesday were Atoms For Peace, Phoenix, Lionel Richie, Wilco and a rare Texas performance by R&B legend D'Angelo. 

The festival in Austin, Texas, expands to two weekends this year, Oct. 4-6 and 11-13, at Zilker Park. Three-day passes go on sale Tuesday.

Wilco, Queens of the Stone Age, fun., Kendrick Lamar, Tame Impala, Autre ne Veut and Justin Vernon's other band, The Shouting Matches, also are on the schedule, along with a selection of Austin bands that includes The Black Angels, Okkervil River and Court Yard Hounds.

Head here to see the entire lineup.
