Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, LCD Soundsystem to Headline Lollapalooza

Lollapalooza will celebrate its 25th edition in a big way: Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers and LCD Soundsystem will headline the Chicago music festival this summer.

These three titanic acts will grace the Grant Park stage from July 28 to 31, celebrating the grand anniversary with an added fourth day of festivities. Lana del Rey and J. Cole are also expected to perform, along with Ellie Goulding, Future, Major Lazer, Disclosure, Haim, the 1975, Bloc Party, M83, Flume, Grimes, Vince Staples, Wavves, Danny Brown, Chairlift, Mac Miller, Vic Mensa, the Arcs, A$AP Ferg, Modern Baseball, Foals, Classixx, Kehlani, D.R.A.M., Alessia Cara, Die Antwoord, Frightened Rabbit, AlunaGeorge, Jane’s Addiction and many more.

Radiohead is storming back onto the scene after a period of laying low. The band’s 2016 North American tour dates all sold out within minutes, prompting frustration from empty-handed fans and even frontman Thom Yorke himself.

The U.K.-based quintet is expected to release its ninth studio album soon, based on its recent business move.

LCD Soundsystem is making more of an official comeback after splitting in 2009. The electro/alt rockers will also headline Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April, along with Guns N’ Roses (also reuniting) and Calvin Harris.

Lollapalooza tickets are on sale now through the festival’s website. Last year, Paul McCartney, Metallica and Florence + the Machine led the lineup. Radiohead last headlined Lolla in 2008. RHCP performed there in 1992, 2006, 2012 and 2014. LCD Soundsystem was last at the festival in 2007.
