@austin360.com/acl: Read our critics picks and band previews, plus the latest festival news. Live coverage starts Friday.
Tuesday: See our guide to the Austin acts playing each weekend (they’re the bulk of the lineup changes from week to week, with most touring acts and the headliners staying the same).
Friday: Look for an special extra-packed Austin360 with more critics picks, previews and a special pullout schedule as Day One dawns.

Next week we do it all again.
