Lollapalooza 2013 lineup: Mumford & Sons, Phoenix, Vampire Weekend & more
Leading the way is Mumford & Sons, the Grammy-winning Brit strummers who sold a ton of copies of Babel last year. Add to that Phoenix and Vampire Weekend, both who will drop hotly anticipated albums this year. Also, there's the Killers, who definitely want to get some more miles out of 2012's Battle Born. Though the full lineup is still forthcoming, a few other likely acts were published in a Chicago Tribune report.

And it just so happens that both of them will play at Roy Wilkins Auditorium right around the Lolla weekend. Confirmed by "multiple sources," the reunited Postal Service is set to take part in the weekend, and will be in St. Paul on August 2. And the National is expected to perform, and will follow with a show at the Roy on August 6.
According to the report, the rest of the lineup is expected to come in April, but for a certain type of fan -- possibly not the folks who got out to see a reunited Black Sabbath last year -- this offering should be enough to jump on the "early bird" tickets, which go on sale Tuesday, March 26.
