Update (05/09/13): While Regular 3 day passes for weekend 1 are sold out, travel packages and VIP & Platinum 3 day passes are still available. And all options are still available for weekend 2.
Update (05/08/13): Hopefully clearing this up once & for all, ACL has posted the list of bands NOT playing both weekends. Every other band is playing BOTH weekends.
Update (05/07/13): The lineup is out! The Cure & Depeche Mode!!! At the same show!!! Here's the lineup video. That's some Cure bio they put up. Ton of effort and research went into that, I'm sure. :P Apologies to ACL, as they say The Cure provided that bio. In that case, it's actually pretty funny.
Again, to be absolutely clear on this, ACL is 2 weekends. Oct. 4th - 6th & Oct. 11th - 13th. The Cure, along with most of the bands, play 2 shows, 1 each weekend. If you want to see both Cure shows, you have to buy tix for BOTH weekends, not just 1. $225 for each weekend pass. No single day passes. On sale now. Platinum ($3.600) and VIP ($1,050) passes are also available.

They are revealing some of the lineup on Dominican Joe coffee cups, Sno Beach sno-cones, The Mighty Cone ice cream, classified ads in the Austin Chronicle, Pinthouse Pizza coasters, etc, so if you're in Austin, get out there and find the official Cure clue to unlock it on the page! You need to upload a photo of it to Instagram and tag it with #ACLFEST.
