Single-day tickets for both Saturdays of ACL Fest 2014 have sold out. Saturday’s lineup features rapper Eminem, dub-step artist Skrillex and music industry construct Lana Del Rey. Ridiculously fun electro-dancehall act Major Lazer, Australian rap breakout star Izzy Azaelea and perennial faves the Avett Brothers and the Head and the Heart will also play Saturday.

It’s somewhat surprising to see Em and crew outpace the Outkast reunion show (Friday) and New Zealand’s teen sensation Lorde (weekend two, Sunday) but 65,000 “Stans” and their disaffected teenaged kids are apparently a force to be reckoned with. The good news is, tickets to both weekend’s Friday and Sunday shows are still available. More info.
