The Sunday finale proved to be the finest of the fest with a chock-full schedule brimming with eclecticism. Always great to have this much on the slate to get you back and moving once again after a long weekend. With The Head and the Heart, Walkmen, The Lee Boys, the absolutely insane Bomba Estereo set, Manu Chao, Death From Above 1979, Arcade Fire and Empire of the Sun, the schedule was full of great bands I haven’t seen much or at all. A lot of stylistic range in Zilker Sunday and it proved to be an incredible end to the 10th Annual Austin City Limits festival. Arcade Fire’s Win Butler, after mentioning that he considers Austin to be the band’s American hometown, announced that the band is about to go on hiatus, marking ACL’s set as the final U.S. date for some time after a huge year that saw the Canadian band headline Jazz Fest, Coachella, Bonnaroo and take home a Grammy for Album of the Year.
