Yeah Yeah Yeahs to Replace Beastie Boys at ACL

Yeah Yeah Yeahs
After weeks of speculation across the net and many conversations with friends asking who would be replacing the Beastie Boys vacant spot during Friday night's ACL, we finally have an answer to share with everyone. Yeah Yeah Yeahs are officially locked in to the other Friday night headlining spot opposite Kings of Leon.

In addition to Karen O and company, Raphael Saadiq has been added to the Friday lineup (5:30-6:30) on the Lady Bird Lake Stage and Ben Sollee will be performing on the Austin Ventures Stage (12:30-1:30) on Sunday afternoon. This only leaves the 7:30-8:30 timeslot on the Lady Bird Lake Stage (due to Lily Allen pulling out) as the only hole left to fill. (via Austin360)
