Janelle Monáe made headlines last October when she took the stage at the Austin City Limits Music Festival in a checkered trench coat and bodysuit to serve a sizzling performance of “Electric Lady” and “PrimeTime” (the latter of which she dedicated to her late mentor, Prince). This year, Texas’s famous fest is once again upping the ante with six jam-packed days (Oct. 4–6 and 11–13) of high-profile acts, including Cardi B, Billie Eilish, and Childish Gambino. Sure to steal the show, however, are the long-awaited comebacks of ’80s legends Guns N’ Roses and the Cure.
