The Lollapalooza Lineup Is Still A Mystery, But Tix Go On Sale Next Week

There's still no word on who is actually playing Lollapalooza when it returns to Grant Park this year, from Aug. 3 to 6. But since some folks stopped caring less about the music and more about the party years ago, it makes total sense that four-day tickets will go on sale sans any news of the bands playing next week, on March 21.

Of course there are frontrunners based on holes in musician's touring schedules. Muse is pretty much a lock to headline one of the four nights. And both Spoon and Ryan Adams' just released U.S. tour dates have nice Lolla-sized gaps as well. We're also going to guess given her new album, Lorde will probably make a return appearance. And given recent news of other fest appearances this year, we wouldn't be shocked to see Foo Fighters return to Chicago—but that is 100% pure speculation on my part. The lineup usually gets released (or leaked) around this time of year so we won't be kept guessing all that much longer.

Lollapalooza has a solid history of selling out, no mater who's playing, so if you don't want to take chances waiting on single day tickets and lineups, get ready to hit that refresh button at 10 a.m. next Tuesday.
