Pop Duo Aly & AJ Headed to Austin to Rock The BMI Stage At ACL 2022

Aly and AJ

Remember pop stars Aly & AJ? The former Disney stars are still making music together and they are set to play the BMI stage at ACL 2022!

The sibling duo consists of Alyson and Amanda Joy Michalka. Both sisters are actors as well as singers. You might remember them from countless Disney Channel shows and movies. They even had a Disney Channel movie together called Cow Belles. Recently, AJ even claimed that sister Aly was offered the Hannah Montana role before Miley Cyrus.

This won’t be Aly’s first visit Austin. In 2009, she came to the ATX to film Bandslam. The film also features Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights), Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical), Bobby Bones and, surprisingly, David Bowie! You can find all the Bandslam filming locations and more here.

The two have been performing together for over a decade but this is the first time they’re playing ACL – if you’re attending the fest weekend one, that is. They will be at BMI stage on Saturday, October 8. BMI brings a musically diverse lineup to ACL year after year and this year is no different.

Over the last decade the BMI stage at ACL has had some memorable performances from Miranda Lambert, Alessia Cara, Luke Comb, City and Colour, Gary Clark, Jr., Shakey Graves, Maren Morris and more. This year the genres include psych-rock, indie-folk, post-punk, R&B, indie-rock and indie-pop. Even if you don’t recognize the names on the line-up, we always encourage checking it out. Part of what we love about ACL is discovering new music and BMI is the spot for that!

“BMI is always excited to return to Zilker Park for Austin City Limits, and this year is no exception. We love working with C3 and are thrilled to be partnering with them for another four years, so that we can continue to invest in the Austin community and highlight our best and brightest talent on the BMI stage.”
