Why yes, it is almost “that time” again.

The 2014 Austin City Limits Music Festival lineup will be announced April 22 at 8 a.m., according to a press release from the festival’s organizers. At 10 a.m. the same day, three-day passes will go on sale. The regular-priced, general admission tickets will set you back $225.

Want to live up ACL weekend like a headliner? Music fans can also enter the festival’s Rockstar Weekend contest for a chance to win four Platinum Passes (including complimentary catering and bar access, as well as VIP stage views), an on-site private tour bus, four flights, two hotel rooms and more. A contest winner will be selected April 21.

VIP & Platinum Passes and travel packages for the fest are already on sale. According to the official website, ACL Fest is also bringing back single-day passes later in the spring. Last year, only three-day tickets were available for the fest, a departure from previous festivals.

(And if you want to play the guessing game before the big announcement: Music writer Deborah Sengupta Stith cherrypicked her ideal ACL Fest lineup based on the Lollapalooza acts just a few weeks ago.)

NOTE:An earlier version of this post contained the wrong date for when ticket sales begin.
