The Austin City Limits Music Festival is back -- this makes the 13th annual installment of the event, known for nabbing big-name acts. This year's lineup includes  Pearl Jam ,  Beck ,  Lorde ,  Foster the People ,  Eminem ,  The Replacements ,  Skrillex ,  Lana Del Ray ,  Jimmy Cliff  and a ton more. The 2014 festival takes place over two weekends, October 3-5 and October 10-12.

Besides these gigantic acts, ACL keeps it real by showcasing dozens of Austin hometown bands as well as Austin restaurants -- including Amy's Ice Creams, a local joint that offers ice cream flavors like Bacon Jalapeno Popper, Big Boy Breakfast and Tequila Sunrise. 

The event is held at the 46-acre Zilker Park and attracts 75,000 fans each day, or nearly a quarter-million over the three-day festival.   Last year the festival hosted more than 130 acts including  Kings of Leon ,  Phoenix ,  Atoms for Peace ,  Vampire Weekend ,  Wilco ,  Depeche Mode ,  Muse  and  The Cure.

Tickets for this year's Austin City Limits Festival -- including multi-day and travel packages -- are on sale now through the ACL website,   ACLFestival.com.
