ACL Fest 2016 Weekend 2: Friday pics (Radiohead, Foals, Banks & Steelz, more)

Ten years ago, Foals could have likely been classified as an indie rock group, but now they’re an archetypal case of indie’s going mainstream. The hip haircuts and clean guitar leads belie the fundamental radio rock aesthetic in which Foals purvey. The band’s hour-long set is tailored perfectly to the main stage: the riffs and choruses are huge, and much of the crowd sings along with the band. Foals’ setlist has a tendency to blur together—save for moments of respite like “Spanish Sahara”—but the one-two punch of “Inhaler” and “What Went Down” brings the band’s performance to a satisfying and heavy close. – [Popmatters]

The second weekend of Austin’s ACL Fest kicked of Friday, October 7 in Zilker Park, much like it did the first weekend, with sets from Radiohead, Foals, Band of Horses, Die Antwoord, and more. You can check out Radiohead’s weekend 2 setlist and a full set of pictures, and the rest of Friday can be seen in the gallery above.
