Arctic Monkeys will headline US festival Lollapalooza this summer.

Taking place between August 1-3 in Chicago, USA, the Sheffield band appear alongside fellow headliners Eminem and OutKast, who will make one of their 40 festival appearances there.

Lollapalooza will also play host to Kings Of Leon, Foster The People and Chase & Status.

Although Arctic Monkeys have headlined a number of UK festivals, and will top the bill at both Reading and Leeds and T In The Park this summer, Lollapalooza will be the first time the band have headlined an American festival. Speaking of their headline slot, Arctic Monkeys confirmed that they are "pleased to announce they will headline Lollapalooza in Chicago on Friday August 1, 2014." It follows their biggest ever US gig at Madison Square Garden in New York in February this year.

Weekend and one-day passes are already sold out for the event but some platinum passes are still available. For more information head to
