Austin City Limits Music Festival has returned and fest-goers have started planning some wild predictions for the 2022 lineup. The tickets presale has finally gone live so let’s discover who could be playing.

Fans of the ACL festival are not complaining that the lineup hasn’t been announced yet, instead, they are guessing who the acts could be and making their own predictions. In fact, they are just thankful that it won’t be another virtual-only event like in 2020, which took place online due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Let’s discover what ACL fans’ wild 2022 lineup predictions are, as the ticket presale link goes live and fans get riled up.

Fans have wild ACL 2022 lineup predictions

If you’re wanting to go to the ACL music festival in Zilker Park you’re going to have to grab your tickets without seeing the lineup. ACL Festival 2022 will take place between the 7th-9th October and the following weekend 14th-16th. Therefore, it is quite a time away before the festival actually takes place which means the lineup acts will be released closer to the time.

Last years festival lineup was released in late May, so a similar timeframe can be expected for 2022’s lineup.

Some fans are making predictions that the lineup could be similar to the 2021 acts as the festival certainly came back with a bang. Some of the acts included Billie Eilish, George Strait, Miley Cyrus, Duran Duran, Megan Thee Stallion, Machine Gun Kelly, Doja Cat and Tyler, the Creator. Now if that’s not an incredible lineup we don’t know what is.

Many fans think Coldplay could be headlining because they are supposedly headlining Bonnaroo this year so many are considering them for ACL. They have decided this as the journey routing would make sense and they currently have no Austin shows on their tour. Another band fans think could attend the festival is ZZ Top. Although they wouldn’t be headliners the rock band would definitely be an asset to the lineup.

Some predictions have also included Bad Bunny, Swedish House Mafia and Limp Bizkit. Speculations threads have flooded forums such as Reddit and Twitter, where an ACL speculation page has been made. One Reddit user has even created their own ACL 2022 poster.

ACL Fest returned to in-person action in 2021 and fans enjoyed it so much that they jumped straight on the presale tickets for 2022. This year it was held over two weekends, 1st-3rd and 8th-10th October. Attendees were required to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19 or a recent negative test result for entrance to the festival.
