Published Apr 26, 2011Though its located all the way in Chicago, the 20th edition of the reliable alternative music festival Lollapalooza just might be worth cashing in all the air miles you have banked. Festival organizers have revealed the lineup for the milestone event, and it's certainly one for the ages.
From the veteran rock'n'roll of the Cars and Big Audio Dynamite to the arena-ready pop appeal of headliners Coldplay, Eminem, Muse and Foo Fighters, there's already enough talent there to sell out the fest with no trouble. Then, when you add the indie-friendly talents of My Morning Jacket, Beirut, Crystal Castles, Girl Talk, Bright Eyes, Arctic Monkeys and Death From Above 1979, alongside hip-hop acts like Cee Lo, Jay Electronica, and Nas and Damian Marley, the festival boasts one of the biggest lineups we've ever seen.
That's just scratching the surface, though. The full Lollapalooza lineup is packed with exciting attractions and can be viewed here.
Lollapalooza 2011 runs from August 5 to 7 at Chicago's Grant Park. Three-day passes for the event will run you $215 and can be purchased here.
