Report: Lollapalooza 2014 headliners include Eminem, Kings of Leon, and Arctic Monkeys

on March 18, 2014, 4:30pm

Lollapalooza returns to Chicago’s Grant Park during the weekend of August 1st – 3rd. While the lineup has yet to be officially revealed, The Chicago Tribune reports that Eminem, Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, and Skrillex are among this year’s headliners.

Eminem revisits Lollapalooza just three years removed from his previous stint as headliner. Kings of Leon, meanwhile, previously headlined in 2009. Arctic Monkeys and Skrillex also played in 2011, though they appeared in sub-headlining roles. Skrillex also played last year’s festival with his side-project Dog Blood.

According to The Tribune, additional headliners and the complete lineup will be revealed next week. In all, 100 acts will perform across eight stages.

Based on tour routing, other possible acts include Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Lykke Li, CHVRCHES, Chromeo, and Broken Bells. Meanwhile, Foster the People previously self-confirmed their appearance. Stay tuned to Festival Outlook for more lineup rumors and updates leading up to the formal announcement.

Weren’t there like 7 headliners last year? People need to relax. Lolla always comes through with the under-card.

If they headlined Glastonbury, then they’re worthy of headlining Lolla.

Don’t know how true that is. I read arctic monkeys were playing awhile back. I’m still hoping that the tool headline rumors are true. They were outstanding in 2009

Disappointing headliners. Maybe it’s me, but I didn’t see Arctic Monkeys as a headliner. Didn’t they just play the Riv, which only holds a few thousand?

Terrible lineup. Terrible proofreading before hitting “publish” – second paragraph is a mess, clean it up. I know you want to get this breaking news out there, but this news sucks so no need to rush it out the door.
