The lineup for Lollapalooza 2013 has been confirmed after weeks of rumors, which concluded with a poster bearing the entire lineup being leaked last week. According to Billboard, that poster pretty much hit the mark: among the headliners will be Mumford and Sons, the Killers, Phoenix, the Cure, the Postal Service and Nine Inch Nails, while other big names confirmed to show up include Vampire Weekend, Queens Of The Stone Age, The National, New Order, The Lumineers, Imagine Dragons, Tegan & Sara, Atlas Genius and many more.
- The festival will mark the first Lollapalooza appearance ever for the Cure, a veteran alternative group considered one of the pioneers of modern rock.
- The show is also the first confirmed U.S. date for the reconfigured Nine Inch Nails, which last toured in 2009 and plans a full North American trek this fall.
- Lollapalooza will take place on August 2nd, 3rd and 4th at Grant Park in Chicago.
- According to a press release, the Killers and NIN will headline Friday, August 2nd, Mumford & Sons and the Postal Service will top the August 3rd bill, and the Cure and Phoenix will close things out on August 4th.
- Although three-day passes are already sold out, a limited number of single day passes will go on sale Wednesday (April 3rd) at 9:00 a.m. ET. Visit the Lollapalooza website for more information.
WHAT DO YOU THINK??
- Now that it's confirmed, what do you make of the lineup?
- Last year's Lollapalooza headliners included the Black Keys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jack White and the reunited Black Sabbath. Was that a better lineup than this?
- Is $200 worth a ticket to this show, even with the amount of artists performing?
