Is this the Lollapalooza 2013 lineup? It is, if two credible Chicago music resources are to be believed.

The image, first published by DJ promotion website Windy City EDM, was confirmed by Andrew Barber of Chicago hip-hop website Fake Shore Drive.

Late Thursday afternoon, Chicago Tribune music columnist Greg Kot, who previously revealed Lolla 2013's headliners, cited "multiple industry sources" in confirming the lineup in the photo is legitimate.

A Lollapalooza spokesperson wouldn't confirm anything for Kot except to say the official lineup would be announced April 9, along with a date for single-day festival pass sales. (Three-day passes sold out earlier this week.) If this lineup holds water as Barber and Kot claim, then we're looking once again at a mix of nostalgia acts, White Dude Bands, major names and the DJ acts that have informed the festival's programming in recent years. Seeing The Cure and New Order at Lollapalooza takes us back to younger days.

If the official announcement is close to the leaked lineup, it would mark the second straight year the two have dovetailed.

Update 2 p.m.: According to NBC Chicago, organizers for Lollapalooza announced they've moved up the official announce for this year's lineup to Monday, April 1.
