Austin City Limits is almost upon us. Taking place over the course of two weekends, this music festival will once again spring to life in Austin, TX from October 3rd-5th and 10th-12th. Over 130 artists from all over the world will descend upon 46 acres of Zilker Park to entertain thousands with a lineup spanning a whole spectrum of genres – including some top-notch EDM acts. If you’re heading into one of the music capitals of the world for a healthy dose of dance music, be sure not to miss any of these performances.

5) Chromeo

The electro-funk duo never fails to deliver groovy, lighthearted beats.

4) Zedd

American Top 40's favorite German EDM producer will undoubtedly present the crowd with a steady stream of chart-topping anthems from his ever-growing list of successful singles.

3) Major Lazer

The Mad Decent boss, Diplo, is also the brain behind this unique act. Major Lazer’s reggae and dancehall-infused productions add a unique element to the lineup as a whole.

2) Skrillex

Well, you can’t really go wrong with Skrillex as a must-see act. Whether it’s for the spectacle of his performance or to have your soul completely rattled by all sorts of bass-laden tracks, there’s no missing this show.

1) Calvin Harris

It’s been a monumental year for Calvin Harris. With his new album, Motion, set to be released in early November, there is bound to be at least a sneak peek or two of unreleased tunes.
