After leaking last week, pushing the official announcement to today instead of next week, the 2013 Lollapalooza lineup is now out, and man is it killer. Taking place from August 2nd through 4th in Chicago’s centric Grant Park, the festival, which has been held in Chicago since 2005 has booked what can probably be considered its best lineup in years.
Headlining the festival this year are The Cure (!!), Mumford & Sons, The Killers, Nine Inch Nails, Phoenix, The Postal Service, Vampire Weekend, and New Order. Like we mentioned in our newsletter yesterday, there really is something for everyone on that bill.
Looking past the headlining acts, there’s plenty more to be found though, with acts like Queens of the Stone Age, The National, Kendrick Lamar, Grizzly Bear, Beach House, alt-J, Cat Power, Jessie Ware, and even Lana Del Rey. Going even further down we find a slew of our Ones To Watch for 2013, including HAIM, The Neighbourhood, Pacific Air, MS MR, Disclosure, and Guards.
Three-day passes for the festival have already sold out, but one-day tickets will go on sale starting on April 3rd.
