LOLLAPALOOZA LINEUP IS KINDA CRAZY

LOLLAPALOOZA LINEUP IS KINDA CRAZY

The lineup for one of the world’s most prestigious music festivals has finally arrived, with news of the Lollapalooza artist roster.

The festival, to run in Chicago from August 3-5, is pretty insane. Headed by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, a reformed Black Sabbath and At The Drive In, Justice, Sigur Ros, Bloc Party and The Black Keys, it’s like every festival you could ever think of… rolled into one.

It doesn’t get any less impressive as you move down the list, though; the likes of The Weeknd, Twin Shadow, SBTRKT, Little Dragon, the Alabama Shakes, Michael Kiwanuka, White Rabbits, Chairlift and the Dum Dum Girls round out a pretty amazing roster.

The lineup for Lollapalooza, founded by Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell, leaked online a day before the official announcement – but let’s face it, with a lineup this huge, SOMEBODY was bound to spill the beans.

For more info, check the Lolla website. Tickets are still available, for the ridiculous price of $230 (and these are the EXPENSIVE ones…), but probably not for long.
