The complete lineup for Chicago’s 10th Lollapalooza won’t be announced until next week, but Eminem, Skrillex, Kings of Leon and Arctic Monkeys will headline the music festival, according to industry sources.

All four headliners will be returning to the three-day event, which last year hit a record high of 300,000 people in attendance and nearly 150 bands performed in Grant Park.

Kings of Leon previously headlined Lollapalooza in 2009. In 2011, “Monster” rapper Eminem headlined and EDM musician Skrillex made his debut at the festival. Arctic Monkeys also performed, but this year will be their first headlining slot.

The Chicago Tribune first broke the news on the story.

Lollapalooza will be held on Aug. 1-3 and tickets are scheduled to go on sale next Tuesday.
