Lollapalooza 2013 Lineup Features Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age + More
The iconic Lollapalooza festival has finally announced its full 2013 lineup! The three-day event will host a massive lineup of rock acts, including Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, the Cure, Baroness, Ghost B.C. + many more.
Since Jane’s Addiction singer Perry Farrell launched Lollapalooza in 1991, the festival has hosted millions of fans and countless legendary acts for over 20 years. Lollapalooza also made history in recent years by bringing the Chicago fest all the way down to Chile and Brazil multiple times. The 2013 edition of Lollapalooza was set to hit another international milestone by planting its stages in Israel, but unfortunately the event was cancelled earlier this year.
Along with the bands listed above, the full lineup includes rock and pop giants such as the Killers, Mumford & Sons, Phoenix, Vampire Weekend, New Order, the National, Imagine Dragons + many more.
Legendary act The Cure will make their inaugural appearance at this year’s Lollapalooza fest, which Lollapalooza creator Perry Farrell celebrated through a new quote. “The first time I ran into Robert Smith of The Cure was 1997 in New York City,” Farrell recalls, “We were both going into the same club; and it was Halloween. I was dressed as myself and so was he. I am so happy The Cure have finally arrived at Lolla in Chicago!”
Lollapalooza will once again take over Chicago’s Grant Park, delivering three days of music from Aug. 2-4. Tickets are moving fast, but single-day passes are still available through the official Lollapalooza website. Check out Lollapalooza’s 2013 lineup video announcement below.
