CAPYAC duo Eric Peana and Delwin Campbell are primed to be the funkiest and most righteously outrageous set of this ACL weekend.
Austin natives Eric Peana and Delwin Campbell, better known as CAPYAC, are primed to be the funkiest and most righteously outrageous set of the weekend. Known for out of the ordinary onstage acts, the duo not only performs to entertain, but to redefine the world of disco. Despite embarking on nationwide tours, being premiered in FADER Magazine and performing overseas, ACL will be their largest show to date. Peana and Campbell are known to bring a formidable live band to their sets to back up their already new age sound with brass, strings, and double the shenanigans.

2. Jacob Banks
He may be fresh to the US festival circuit, but Jacob Banks is no stranger to the spotlight. Having opened for the likes of Alicia Keys and Sam Smith across the U.K., Banks is ready to stun American crowds with his sultry voice. Time magazine praised Banks’ “Chainsmoking” as one of the best tracks of 2017. Receiving praises from high profile publications like the New York Times and FADER, it’s only a matter of time before Banks gains the recognition stateside that he deserves. Catch him now and brag about it to your friends.
SUN 1:15pm @ Barton Springs (WEEK ONE ONLY)
3. Two Feet
A true SoundCloud success story, Two Feet flew into the spotlight basically overnight. His breakthrough hit “Go Fuck Yourself” took the internet by storm in 2016. The soul-filled, blues-influenced, electronic music he releases is a testament that electronic music is so much more than high-tempo EDM. Performing with a live three piece band, expect a jazzy, vibe filled jam session from this set.
FRI 3:15pm BMI (WEEK TWO ONLY)
4. Big Wild
Electronic music is frequently criticised for saturated repetitiveness, and less-than-novel production. It’s producers like Big Wild who bring a sense of refreshment to the community. Combining the sounds of EDM’s most respected sub-genres, Big Wild is more than just an EDM act. It’s refreshing to see electronic acts incorporate live instrumentation, and Big Wild makes it a point to provide exciting live sets for the audience. The music may be more on the chill side, but don’t be fooled, this is going to be a high energy set.
FRI 4:15pm @ Tito’s Handmade Vodka Stage (WEEKS ONE AND TWO)
Any seasoned hip-hop head knows that this is one set that is not to be missed. After years of Visa issues with the U.S. government, Skepta has finally earned his chance to grace festival stages across America. A bona fide headliner at festivals across the U.K. and Europe, this is the year that Skepta jumps the Atlantic and gives fans stateside the chance to catch the energy of a festival grime set. The chance to catch the biggest name in grime music is one that is just too good to pass up. There’s a reason this guy had his own track on Drake’s album. Just sayin’.
FRI 5:15pm @ Homeaway Stage (WEEKS ONE AND TWO)
