Radiohead, NIN to headline Lollapalooza?

The stars are rumoured to perform at the Chicago Festival

Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails are rumoured to be headlining this year’s Lollapalooza Festival.

Promoters of the festival, which is set to take place at Chicago’s Grant Park August 1-3, have not yet confirmed the lineup. But “industry sources” told the Chicago Tribune that Radiohead have been booked as the “centrepiece of the festival”.

They also said that Nine Inch Nails will give their first Chicago performance in several years at the event, which was founded by Perry Farrell.

Last year’s headliners included Muse, Pearl Jam and Daft Punk.

More than 100 artists are expected to perform at this year’s Lollapalooza, with the lineup to be confirmed in the coming weeks.
