The daily schedule for the 2009 Austin City Limits Music Festival at Zilker Park, Oct. 2-4, dropped this morning. Check it out here, but expect some changes to the Friday night lineup. The Beastie Boys canceled all their upcoming tour dates, including a taping for Austin City Limits, and postponed the release of its forthcoming, Hot Sauce Committee Part 1, after Adam "MCA" Yauch was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in his left parotid gland. The tumor was caught in an early stage of development and is located in a generally localized area, but will still require surgery and additional treatment.

Also worth noting are some of the name changes to the different stages. From the looks of it, ACL has lost corporate sponsorship from AT&T and (obviously) Washington Mutual, but picked up XBox in return. Stay tuned for more details.
