Foo Fighters, Drake, the Weeknd, Disclosure, deadmau5, alt-J, Hozier, Bassnectar and Of Monsters and Men are the headlining acts for the 2015 edition of the Austin City Limits Music Festival.

The three-day festival, which takes place on eight stages over two weekends in Zilker Park — this year, it’s Oct. 2-4 and Oct. 9-11 — will also feature artists unique to specific weekends.

The Strokes, Alabama Shakes, Years & Years and Talk in Tongues will perform Oct. 2-4, while Florence + the Machine, Modest Mouse and Wolf Alice will join the line-up Oct. 9-11. (The official line-up is being revealed two days after it was accidentally leaked.)

Other musicians scheduled to appear in Zilker Park include Tame Impala, Sturgill Simpson, the Decemberists, Gary Clark Jr., Chance the Rapper, TV on the Radio, Dwight Yoakam and Billy Idol.

The lone North Texan making the trip to Austin this year is Fort Worth singer-songwriter and Columbia Records signee Leon Bridges (who made an appearance at the Met Gala in New York City Monday).

Three-day passes ($250) for both weekends of ACL are on sale at 10 a.m. today at aclfestival.com, with three-day VIP passes ($1100), three-day platinum passes ($3,600) and travel packages ($1,919-$9,599) also available.

For those who can’t make the trip to Austin, the festival will be offering an official livestream of performances, the specifics of which will be announced in September.
