  /  04.26.2011


Lollapalooza will usher in 20 years with some help from Eminem. The Detroit rapper has been tapped to headline the Windy City festival’s anniversary edition this summer.

The three-day music extravaganza, taking place from August 5-7 in Chicago’s Grant Park, will also feature co-headliners Coldplay, Foo Fighters, and Muse.

Other acts on the eclectic bill include Cee Lo Green, Nas and Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Ryan Leslie, Tinie Tempah, and Skylar Grey, who will stage a full set comprised of material from her forthcoming Wonderland Music/Interscope Records debut.

Kid Cudi and Jay Electronica will perform over on the electronic and dance music stage Perry’s, named after festival founder Perry Farrell. The full lineup can be found at lollapalooza.com.

Before heading to Lollapalooza, Eminem is set to headline the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, being held from June 9-12 in Manchester, Tenn.
