A bit of the Lollapalooza 2013 lineup trickled out a couple weeks ago, but today this year's offerings got taut, dark, and -- most importantly -- official. Though the plan initially was to drop the full, gargantuan list of bands in two more weeks, the timeline got pushed up when a pre-April Fool's poster made its way online and it looked quite real.
On it, we found names such as Nine Inch Nails and the Cure, as well as previously confirmed performers Mumford & Sons, Phoenix, Vampire Weekend, the National, and Postal Service. Today we discover that a greater blend of genres does exist in the 2013 iteration of Lollapalooza via Ellie Goulding, Kendrick Lamar, Lana Del Rey, Crystal Castles, 2 Chainz, New Order, Cat Power, Death Grips, and plenty more. Peep the lineup coming to Chicago's Grant Park on the weekend of August 2-4 below.
