Lollapalooza 2013 Lineup: Released!

by at . Comments

Lollapalooza's 2013 lineup has been revealed, and will feature The Cure's first appearance in the festival's more than 20-year history this summer.

The rockers will join fellow headliners Mumford and Sons, The Killers and Nine Inch Nails, Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell announced Monday.

"It is so exciting to have The Cure at Lollapaloooza for the first time because I love The Cure and we've never had them," Farrell, also the lead singer of Jane's Addiction, said.

"It's always frustrated me and made me feel incomplete. Now I can feel complete and die."

That's glowing praise for The Cure right there.

Other acts among the lineup of some 130 bands at Lollapalooza include Phoenix, Thievery Corporation, Tegan and Sara, Cat Power, New Order and Lana Del Rey.

Vampire Weekend and The Lumineers will play the August 2-4 festival of indie bands, singer-songwriters and country, hip-hop, rock and electronic acts.

Musicians come from across the U.S. and the world, including countries like Australia, Brazil, Chile, Greece and Sweden, to perform in Chicago.

"We don't look to stylize our lineup so much as we just stay away from pop garbage," said Farrell, who in the past has said he sees himself as a music curator.

"Sometimes it's not what I'm going to do. It's what I'm not going to do that sets your trend."

In recent years, that has meant headliners have included Lady Gaga, Green Day, Eminem and Coldplay. The full lineup is available on Lollapalooza's website.

The Bonnaroo 2013 lineup, the other major summer music festival in the U.S., has slotted Paul McCartney, Wilco and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
