The folks behind Lollapalooza have spent the past week dropping hints about this year’s lineup, announcing artists one letter at a time, via a sort of hangman or Wheel of Fortune game. And though it’s been fun to hazard guesses about what bands will occupy which spots, the Lolla people have now revealed the whole lineup. Arcade Fire, the Strokes, Lady Gaga, Green Day, the reunited Soundgarden, and (surprisingly enough) the fast-rising Phoenix all serve as headliners at this year’s fest, which will take over Chicago’s Grant Park August 6-8.
Other artists on the bill include MGMT, Spoon, the National, Hot Chip, Erykah Badu, the Black Keys, Devo, the xx, Cut Copy, the New Pornographers, Grizzly Bear, Yeasayer, Dirty Projectors, Metric, Matt and Kim, Drive-By Truckers, Jamie Lidell, Frightened Rabbit, Fuck Buttons, the Walkmen, HEALTH, Wild Beasts, Wavves, Blitzen Trapper, Stars, Social Distortion, Jimmy Cliff, Deer Tick, Cypress Hill, Gogol Bordello, Chromeo, Wolfmother, Mavis Staples, the Cribs, Raphael Saadiq, Minus the Bear, Rogue Wave, the Big Pink, the Dodos, Cymbals Eat Guitars, the Morning Benders, Javelin, 2ManyDJs, Peanut Butter Wolf, BBU, Empire of the Sun, B.o.B., the Antlers, Warpaint, the Soft Pack, and Harlem.
