After rumors and various posts teasing music lovers from everywhere, ACL Festival organizers confirmed Jay Z will be a headliner for 2017!

It's a lyric from the 2005 hit "Numb/Encore" by Jay Z and Linkin Park.
When the news broke, many people voiced their excitement on Twitter.
Other headliners for 2017 include "The Red Hot Chili Peppers", "Chance the Rapper", "The Killers", and "Ice Cube".
Side Note: Solange, Beyonce's sister is also pegged to play at ACL fest. With the addition of her husband Jay Z, there's a chance Queen Bey might make an appearance in Austin. Texas is her home state after all!
Jay Z & Solange will both be at ACL... I imagine Beyoncé will be hiding around somewhere.. 🤔 #ACLFest— pj (@PJ_Botello97) May 4, 2017
