This year's Lollapalooza lineup has been revealed. Bold face names this time around: Soundgarden, Green Day, Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire and Erykah Badu, alongside nearly ninety of the brightest emerging acts, including MGMT, Grizzly Bear, the National, Yeasayer, Phoenix, Frightened Rabbit and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, among others.
In case you don't have enough frequent flier miles and disposable income to justify a trip to the Windy City, a number of the acts, such as Dirty Projectors (due at this year's Westword Music Showcase), Drive By Truckers and Cypress Hill (appearing at this year's Mile High Music Festival) are slated to swing by Denver later this summer. The full lineup for Lollapalooza (August 6-8 in Chicago's Grant Park) posted after the jump.
