ACL Fest: Charting the most popular artists, according to Spotify

Chance the Rapper is the most popular artist performing at the Austin City Limits Music Festival, at least according to Spotify data.

The streaming service provides a popularity rating for artists on a 0-100 scale.

Chance the Rapper headlines Jmblya 2017 on May 6 at Circuit of the Americas. Erika Rich for American-Statesman (Erika Rich for American-Statesma/Erika Rich for American-Statesma)

Chance the Rapper’s rating edges out Martin Garrix, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jay-Z, whose popularity score may skewed because his latest album is not on Spotify.
