Austin City Limits Announces New Tapings
The final tapings of Austin City Limits season 45 are coming this October.
Austin City Limits announced that The Raconteurs, Rosalía and Billie Eilish will be the upcoming performers. All three acts will be performing at the Austin City Limits Music Festival, and two of them will be making their Austin City Limits debut.
The Raconteurs taping will be on October 3rd. After over a decade of their last taping, the Nashville band will be returning to the ACL stage. Their 10 year hiatus occurred after their album Consolers of the Lonely was released in 2008. In 2018, the band shared two singles and followed up with releasing their new album Help Us Stranger this year. The Raconteurs will play the next day at ACL Fest on October 4th and the following Friday on October 11th.
Spanish artist Rosalía will be performing at Austin City Limits for the first time ever on October 8th. The 26-year-old released her acclaimed album EL MAL QUERER in 2018 and has collaborated with artists like James Blake and J Balvin. Aside from her phenomenal singing, the “Malamente” artist knows how to incorporate fashion and dancing to her performances. The artist, who has become a global sensation, won at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards for Best Latin Video and Best Choreography with J Balvin for their song “Con Altura.” Watch the music video below.

Rosalía also took home two Latin Grammys for Best Alternative Song and Best Urban Fusion Performance. Fans can also catch the Flamenco singer at ACL Fest on Sunday October 6th and October 13th.
Billie Eilish is also making her Austin City Limits debut on October 11th. It’s no surprise that the 17-year-old has become one of the fastest rising artists in music after her first single “ocean eyes” back in 2017. Two years later, Eilish released her first album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? and went double platinum. Just last week the artist revealed her music video for “all the good girls go to hell,” check it out below.
