The 2017 Lollapalooza lineup was announced on Wednesday morning, and this year's headliners include Chance The Rapper, The Killers, Muse, Arcade Fire, The xx, Lorde, blink-182, DJ Snake, Big Sean and Justice.

As expected Ryan Adams and Spoon will also appear, joined near the top of the bill by acts including Run The Jewels, Cage The Elephant, Tove Lo, The Head and The Heart, Liam Gallagher and Charli XCX.

And while we're stoked to see many of those acts, a first glance at the undercard reveals some real surprises. Migos, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty, and Chicago's Noname are just a sampling of some of the stronger hip-hop acts this year. Perhaps the fest's four-day duration has allowed for a little more variety and surprise to creep in?

We're still digging through the bill but we're surprised to see some real upstarts in there, including Chicago's The Walters and Canadian rockers PUP. Both have potential to have blowout sets that could get people talking.

And of course the "Third Eye Blind?!" slot for this year is the recently reignited '90s combo Live. Expect them to get booked on a stage much too small for a mid-day crowd wanting to drench themselves in nostalgia.

Here's your day-by-day breakdown.
