2016 ACL Fest weekend 1, day 1 in pics (Radiohead, M83, Foals & more)
Twenty-three years since debut release “Pablo Honey,” it’s a stunningly crafted two-hour best of that leans on the heft of opening and closing album tracks like “Street Spirit (Fade Out),” and encores like sprawling suite “Paranoid Android.”
“Thanks guys, have a wicked weekend,” Yorke said just after “There There” supplanted karaoke staple “Creep” from the setlist. Then he sang “Karma Police” to close the loop.
You’ll hear some awkward falsetto from brave participants standing within earshot if you see them next week, but in the pantheon of rich and space-attacking ACL headliner sets, this is a gold-star instant classic. – Austin 360
The first weekend of Austin City Limits Festival went down this past weekend. Here we’ve got pictures from Friday (9/30)’s festivities that included a headlining set from Radiohead, along with such acts as M83, Foals, The Front Bottoms, Frightened Rabbit, Charlift, Julien Baker and many more. We’ve got pictures from day 1 in the gallery above, and you can check out Radiohead’s setlist below.
Weekend 2 is almost upon us, happening October 7 – 9.
