UPDATE:

Well, the official line-up for this year’s Austin City Limits Festival has been revealed and lets just confirm that the vast majority of the line-up that was leaked on Sunday evening were in fact scheduled to appear at the festival with the exception of the Foo fighters actually performing on both weekends.

Check out the newly confirmed first wave of acts. According to reports, the next waves will come our way in September.

If Austin City Limits Music Festival was trying to keep their 2015 line-up a secret, then maybe they need to have a little conversation with their website person about letting the secret out of the bag two days before the official announcement was set to happen.

Last night (May 3), the line-up for both weekends of the music festival was leaked online, with the website’s link circulating the interweb. Quickly after the “mistake,” the post was taken down and now an “Oops, we’re not finding the page you’re looking for” message is appearing, but not before people took to the internet to spread the word and of course screen cap the information.

Sucks for them and their surprise, great for the people who were on the fence about going.

Weekend one will feature performances from: the Foo Fighters, The Strokes, Drake, The Weeknd, Disclosure, Tame Impala, Alabama Shakes, Alt-J, The Decemberists, Chance the Rapper, ASAP Rocky, Billy Idol, Run the Jewels, TV on the Radio, Brandon Flowers, Brand New, Father John Misty, Kurt Vile and the Violators, Gary Clark Jr., Royal Blood, Jose Gonzalez, and Daughter, along with deadmau5, Bassnectar, Hozier, and Of Monsters and Men.

Weekend two will have an almost exact line up except with a few changes. Instead of The Strokes, Modest Mouse will take their place and Florence and the Machine were added to the already packed line-up.

Check out the full (leaked) line-up below.

While everyone was sucked in by the cool unveil of the Bonnaroo line-up and every possible social media account around, another festival decided to unveil their own line-up as well.

Boston Calling will be holding its first of two annual music festivals during the weekend of May 22-24 at City Hall Plaza in downtown Boston with many names that seem to be making 2015 the year of their festival appearances.

Headlining the yearly event will be Beck, My Morning Jacket, and the Pixies while sub-headliners will include Tame Impala, St. Vincent, TV on the Radio, and Tenacious D.

Other acts confirmed for the weekend long event include: Gerard Way, Marina and the Diamonds, Vance Joy, Run the Jewels, Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminal, Chet Faker, Jungle, The Lone Bellow, and current radio darling, Tove Lo.

Check out the festival’s video announcement below which, for some reason, reminds us of the Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” video. Maybe it’s the fake mustaches?

General admission tickets go on sale today (Wednesday, Jan. 14) beginning at noon on the festival’s website. Early Bird 3-day passes are $160, while those interested in 3-day VIP tickets will be put back $300.
