The Libertines to play Lollapalooza Berlin 2015

Band joined on bill by Sam Smith, Bastille, Franz Ferdinand and others

The Libertines, Sam Smith, Bastille, Franz Ferdinand and Chvrches have been announced as part of the line-up for Lollapalooza Berlin.

SEED, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Beatsteaks, Tame Impala, Belle And Sebastian, Hot Chip, Run The Jewels, Everything Everything, and Wolf Alice are also among the acts that have been announced.

The US festival will take place in Europe for the first time this year at Tempelhof Airport between September 12-13. It is being organised in conjunction with Festival Republic, the team behind the Reading and Leeds Festivals, and tickets are available from the festival website. Headliners for the Sunday of the festival will be announced on June 1.

Festival founder Perry Farrell previously expressed his excitement at the growth into Europe. The Jane’s Addiction frontman said in a statement that he is “extremely excited to finally bring Lollapalooza across the pond to Europe. Berlin’s energy, vibrant art, fashion and music scenes are a mirror reflection of what Lollapalooza is all about and I can’t wait to share in this cultural exchange.”

Headliners at Lollapalooza in its home of Chicago, USA last year included OutKast, Eminem, Arctic Monkeys, Skrillex and Lorde.

The Libertines were last week announced as the final headliners for Reading and Leeds Festival 2015. The band are also set to perform at T In The Park and Spain’s Benicàssim festival.
