Alert: Lollapalooza Lineup (sort of) announced.

Fresh off Grammy win for Album of The Year, Mumford & Sons has uncommon bedfellows in the acts with whom they'll share the Lollapalooza main stage. In addition to previously confirmed Phoenix, The Killers, The National, The Postal Service, and Vampire Weekend, The Cure and Nine Inch Nails are confirmed as headliners.

Reliable (yet anonymous) music and concert industry sources confirmed that a leaked picture of a lineup poster (intended for internal use only) is authentic and legitimate. It lists, among the already announced headliners, Queens of The Stone Age, Lumineers, Kendrick Lamar, New Order, Lana Del Rey and a complete cross section artists representing the genres of rock, pop, punk, Americana, and electronica (see full list below).

Lollapalooza - the brainchild of Jane's Addiction front man  Perry Farrell, in 1991 - runs the weekend of August 2nd - 4th in Chicago's Grant Park. An official announcement of a complete lineup is expected this week and will include on-sale dates for single day passes. Three days passes are sold out, but VIP passes (which come with a hefty price tag of $1,050 each) and Platinum passes (prices are available only after an emailed inquiry) are available here.
