The annual Austin City Limits Music Festival has revealed its massive 2008 lineup, and it’s really quite solid. The event is slated for September 26-28 in ’s Texas’ Zilker Park. Here’s a mere sample of this year’s musical offerings:

And The Mystic Valley Band

ACL recently posted a mash-up of tunes from the bands on this list on its MySpace page. The mix was created by Car Stereo Wars to give a little taste of what’s to come at ACL this year. Yet another clever teaser from the folks at ACL.
