Lil Wayne announced to replace Childish Gambino at Austin City Limits festivalLil Wayne Carter V

After adding Phoenix to join its lineup just yesterday, the Austin City Limits festival announced today that indeed Lil Wayne will join Justice, Metallica, Travis Scott and Arctic Monkeys to headline the festival this weekend.

Wayne’s arrival comes immediately after the announcement that, due to a newly obtained foot injury, Childish Gambino needed to postpone the remaining dates on his This Is America tour until later in the year — effectively cancelling his top billing at the Texas festival. It is a timely arrival for Lil Wayne, as the rapper celebrates his 36th birthday with the release of his long-awaited Tha Carter V album drop on the same day.

This post was originally published on this site

Last year, Live Nation successfully launched its Festival Passport program, granting 1,000 lucky fans across the world access to over 90 of the company’s festivals at just one flat fee. The ticketing and events behemoth has announced the return of its one-of-a-kind access pass for the upcoming season, now with a major expansion in territory and new VIP option.

2,500 GA passes will be sold at $999 with just 100 VIP passes priced at $5,000. Though the GA price includes a $200 increase from last year, purchasers will now have over 100 of Live Nation’s unique festivals to choose from.

Both GA and VIP passes will be granted access to any of over 100 participating festivals worldwide, including Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, Electric Daisy Carnival, Governors Ball, Sasquatch!, and Lollapaloozas in Germany, France, and the US.  New additions to the roster include Australia’s Sydney City Limits, China’s Creamfields, UAE’s RedFestDXB, Poland’s Impact Festival, and the UK’s Edinburgh Summer Sessions.

This year, in an effort to avoid scalpers and ensure that Live Nation is only accommodating fans’ needs, purchasers will have to pre-register through Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan platform with their full legal names and photo ID. Registration is open now through April 12 at 11:00 PM ET/10:00 PM CT, with sign up here. Tickets are on-sale beginning April 17 at 8:00 am EDT, but be aware, Festival Passports sold out in under 24 hours last year, so purchasers must act quickly when the time comes.
