We have reached the last of the four. For the ninth consecutive year, Austin City Limits will cap off what Coachella, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza started, serving as the final featured event of the 2009 festival season. By the look of its recently revealed bill, ACL will do so with an eclectic collection of old favorites and high-profile new comers.

As expected, Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, Beastie Boys, Kings of Leon and Sonic Youth will head this year’s Austin City Limits, scheduled to take place from October 2-4 in Austin’s Zilker Park. Other acts of note include Arctic Monkeys, The B-52s, The Decemberists, Ghostland Observatory, John Legend, Mos Def, and Thievery Corportation.
