Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, LCD Soundsystem Reportedly Headlining Lollapalooza 2016
Lollapalooza will celebrate its 25th anniversary this summer and the festival is reportedly doing so with help from some of the biggest bands in the business.
Consequence of Sound reports that Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers and LCD Soundsystem will each headline one day of the festival along with the likes of Lana Del Rey and J. Cole. Lollapalooza has not issued an official comment.
For the first time ever, Lollapalooza will expand to a four-day format in from July 28 through 31 at Grant Park. Four-day passes are set to go on sale Tuesday, March 22nd, with the full lineup announcement also expected then.
It would be Radiohead's second headlining appearance at the festival in Chicago, having previously played in support of In Rainbows in 2008. The secretive British outfit are expected to release their ninth album before the festival. They're already set to play Lollapalooza Berlin in September.
For the Chili Peppers, it would be a record fourth time headlining the event after 1992, 2006 and 2012. They too are expected to be in support of a new album.
The recently reunited LCD Soundsystem played Lollapalooza in 2007, but this would be their first time headlining the festival. They're already confirmed to be performing at Coachella, Bonnaroo and several other major festivals. The James Murphy-led band recently signed to Columbia to release their first album in six years.
