Last year, TUiW went to Coachella based on its stellar lineup, and this morning we have the lineup for this year’s festival, one that seems equally enticing. The fest, held in Indio, CA from April 15-17, will be headlined by Kings of Leon, Arcade Fire, Kanye West, and the reunited Strokes, with featured bands including the Black Keys, Interpol, Robyn, Animal Collective, Mumford & Sons, Bright Eyes, the National, and Death From Above 1979, who evidentially have reunited. If those names weren’t enough, throw in Broken Social Scene, Crystal Castles, Lauryn Hill, Sleigh Bells, Cee-Lo, Lightning Bolt, the reunited Big Audio Dynamite and Suede, Duran Duran, Erykah Badu, the Black Keys, Titus Andronicus, Best Coast, the Kills, the New Pornographers, Lil B, HEALTH, OFF!, Odd Future, and the Chemical Brothers. Damn. Find out more here.

After teasing us with Wheel of Fortune-esque puzzles, Lollapalooza’s lineup has been officially announced. No real surprises at the top, but the festival will be headlined by The Arcade Fire, The Strokes, Lady Gaga, Green Day, Soundgarden, and Phoenix. It’s still unclear who is the main headliner, that is, the one that closes the festival. Also appearing are MGMT, Spoon, the National, Hot Chip, Erykah Badu, the Black Keys, Devo, the xx, Cut Copy, the New Pornographers, Grizzly Bear, Yeasayer, Dirty Projectors, Metric, Matt and Kim, Drive-By Truckers, Jamie Lidell, Frightened Rabbit, Fuck Buttons, the Walkmen, HEALTH, Wild Beasts, Wavves, Blitzen Trapper, Stars, Social Distortion, Jimmy Cliff, Deer Tick, Cypress Hill, Gogol Bordello, Chromeo, Wolfmother, Mavis Staples, the Cribs, Raphael Saadiq, Minus the Bear, Rogue Wave, the Big Pink, the Dodos, Cymbals Eat Guitars, the Morning Benders, Javelin, 2ManyDJs, Peanut Butter Wolf, BBU, Empire of the Sun, B.o.B., the Antlers, Warpaint, the Soft Pack, and Harlem.
Looks like Lolla has a pretty solid lineup this year. So if you’re in the Midwest and need a giant music festival fix this summer, Lollapalooza is your best bet. The festival is August 6-8 in Grant Park, Chicago.
