Austin City Limits Snubs Bob Dylan, Invites Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, Beastie Boys, Many More to 2009 Festival

Question: What do Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band and Beastie Boys have in common?

Answer: They're seemingly headlining every 2009 music festival ever.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, then, Austin City Limits has announced its 2009 line-up, and wouldn't you know, PJ, DMB and those Beasties are right at the top of the list along with other 2009 festival mainstays such as Ben Harper and Kings of Leon. (Sadly, Bob Dylan is nowhere to be found.) But that's not all ACL has on tap this year. A diverse array of rock, hip-hop, jam bands, folkies and more comprise the 130-act slate that will be spread across eight stages during the three-day festival. Here's the full line-up:
