Lollapalooza is set to release its 2013 lineup April 9, but until then, speculation on the lineup continues to grow, and three-day passes have already sold out.
The Lollapalooza lineup is a puzzle that some fans have been trying to put together for the past couple of months. Since Nine Inch Nails reunited for summer performances, Billboard has reported one of the performances to be Lollapalooza. Their tour schedule remains open for the weekend.
Because of Ontario’s Grove Music Festival’s time and space proximity to Lollapalooza, acts booked for the festival, like Phoenix, Hot Chip, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Pretty Lights, Earl Sweatshirt, Wavves, and Bob Mould, are rumored to stop by the Chicago festival, too.
Acts booked for the Squamish Valley Music Festival in British Columbia, like Vampire Weekend, Queens of the Stone Age, Jurassic 5, Gogol Bordello, Fitz and the Tantrums, and Divine Fits, are also speculated to play Lollapalooza because of proximity.
The Postal Service, which recently reunited, has yet to announce a Chicago date for its tour, so fans have been hoping they will be part of Lollapalooza, as well. Disclosure and Reignwolf have mentioned the festival on their websites. The festivals Bonnaroo and Coachella booked the Wu-Tang Clan, so some fans hope Lollapalooza can get them, as well.
Since the early speculation, more reputable reports have said that Nine Inch Nails, The Killers, Mumford and Sons, Phoenix, Vampire Weekend, The National, and The Postal Service will definitely play Lollapalooza.
Yesterday morning, $200 early bird three-day passes sold out within 20 minutes, and the $235 regular price three-day passes sold out in record time, as well.
Single-day tickets and VIP tickets are still available, the VIPs starting at $1,000.
Lollapalooza is Aug. 2-4 at Chicago’s Grant Park.
