All right, so this one’s a day early, but it’s good to have a little game plan for something as gargantuan as Austin City Limits Music Festival. Today’s AMM provides a short list of favorites to check out when the fest kicks off tomorrow at Zilker Park.

The afternoon is off to a great start with an early set by Devon Gilfillian, along with The Altons, Thee Sacred Souls and Studio 1A standout Abraham Alexander. Long Beach pop trio Half Alive is.a good lead into Portugal. The Man. But it’s a tough decision for your AMM host because two faves, Bass Drum of Death and the incredible Little Simz, play at the same time. Either way, follow it with Maggie Rogers, The Mars Volta (featured on today’s AMM), then make way for headliner Kendrick Lamar.

The madness begins tomorrow afternoon at Zilker Park, with Asleep At the Wheel greeting you with a set at 1 p.m. Welcome. Remember to hydrate.
