Skooter reporting 04/11/12

This year’s three-day Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago will headline The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Keys and English indie darlings Florence and the Machine, Jane’s Addiction lead singer and Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell said Wednesday.

The final list also including acts like the likes of Black Sabbath, Jack White and Sigur Ros. The festival in Chicago’s expansive Grant Park begins Aug. 3.

The list of more than 120 bands features Lollapalooza's signature mix of conventional headliners and indie bands. The global acts are strong from across Europe, Chile, Australia and Malaysia. It also echoes American music hubs like Austin, Nashville and Portland, spanning genres from rock to pop, hip hop and rap to electronic dance.

Others on the bill are Bloc Party, Franz Ferdinand, The Afghan Whigs, The Shins and former "American Idol" contestant Haley Reinhart. The full lineup is available on Lollapalooza's website.

This is the eight year of Lollapalooza in Chicago. Last year's festival there were 90,000 visitors in a day sold out or 270,000 over the three-day event.

Regular priced at $230 passes available. Discounted priced and early bird three-day passes were priced at $75 and $200 have already been sold out.
