Last week, we reported on a leaked poster that allegedly listed the Lollapalooza 2013 lineup. While most of this kind of leaked music fest information turns out to be faked, last week’s Lollapalooza poster was legit. That’s right, The Cure, The Killers, and Mumford & Sons will be your headliners at Lollapalooza 2013, with support from Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Phoenix, the Postal Service, New Order, Vampire Weekend, and more.

A few days ago, a Lollapalooza (a.k.a. Coachella of the East Coast) lineup leaked. We questioned the authenticity of it, but as it turns out, it was the real thing. Headliners consist of Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Keys, and Black Sabbath. It all takes place at the Chicago Grant Park on August 3 – 5. Check out the complete lineup below.

While April is the month of Coachella, it looks like Chicago’s Lollapalooza may be inadvertently stealing the left coast music fest’s thunder, as a memo has leaked that purportedly contains the entire Lollapalooza lineup—and it certainly looks legit. Curious as to whether or not your favorite act is making an appearance? Check out the full lineup after the jump—it’s got some surprises!

It’s clear people want their Lollapalooza. Even though we have only three confirmed acts for Lollapalooza 2011, the three-day music festival still had zero problem selling out of its desirable Early Bird Passes.
The 20th anniversary of the music festival, created by Jane’s Addiction Perry Farrell, will take place in Grant Park in Chicago Aug. 5-7. Numerous media outlets have The Foo Fighters, Eminem and Muse as the only acts confirmed. The full line-up will be posted April 26.

Lollapalooza, the music and arts festival conceived by Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell, will be celebrating its twentieth anniversary this year. The festival itself is still months away–it runs from August 6-8 in Chicago’s Grant Park–but Babble is reporting that a virtual time capsule has been created on the official website to commemorate two decades of musical celebration.

It’s a few months off, but a valid source–The Chicago Tribune–seems to believe we’ve already identified a few artists who will be headlining the Lollapalooza music and arts festival this year. According to the article, none other than the Foo Fighters, Muse and Eminem will be taking the stage between August 5 and 7.

Lollapalooza 2010 is officially over and every muscle in our bodies is sore from making the hikes back and forth to stages in the massive Grant Park. We’ve been to many festivals but Lolla was definitely a different experience – different experience we enjoyed. We saw some of our favorite bands and we hope you enjoyed coming along for the ride through our recaps and our photos. To see everything from your favorite bands to some crazy fans, enjoy our Lollapalooza 2010 photo gallery of ALL the photos we took.
We’ve also broken our photos down into each individual day: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. However, if you’d like to take a look at all our photos at once, we’ve got every single one of them below for you!

Lollapalooza has ended and although we are sad to say goodbye, we are glad to share the news that we had nothing less than a fantastic time covering some of the greatest bands of the year play some phenomenal shows. Even though day 3 started out a bit more wet than we would have preferred, the bands certainly made it worth our time.
While Friday’s most anticipated show was Lady Gaga and Saturday’s was Green Day, Sunday had some of the best last acts you could ask for in regards to closing the festival. We were lucky enough to go from Erykah Badu to The National to Soundgarden to Arcade Fire. Yes, it was a completely jam packed day but we’re happy it went down the way it did.

Reunions can make or break a festival and Lollapalooza had to have the biggest reunion of 2010 with Soundgarden closing out the South Side of Grant Park. Sure, Chris Cornell has been touring solo for the last decade and hashing out the occasional tribute to his mainstay band, but to see Soundgarden, the trio of faces that helped pen what became grunge was one for the ages, perform their songs live again was more than a big deal.
