NIN NIN NIN NIN

Look forward to Lollapalooza: The massive festival juggernaut known as Lollapalooza continues with business as usual, blending the best of today's indie and alternative rock with a few iconic blasts from the past. The action heats up Friday with the return of the newly reconvened Nine Inch Nails, who play opposite The Killers on the two main stages. Prior to those performances, the marathon roster includes must see sets by New Order, Hot Chip, Frightened Rabbit, Queens Of The Stone Age and Imagine Dragons.

Mumford & Sons Mumford & Sons Mumford & Sons Mumford & Sons

Come Saturday, dueling headliners include another highly anticipated reunion from The Postal Service, along with the red hot (albeit a bit over hyped) Mumford & Sons. As for the earlier sets, be sure to throw The Lumineers, The National, Ellie Goulding and Foals into the schedule (which can be conveniently customized on the official Lollapalooza website).

The Cure The Cure The Cure The Cure

The action really heats up on Sunday with a rare concert appearance by goth greats The Cure, who are the sure fire bet against Phoenix (billed as a headliner, but really a club-level band at best). Also be on the lookout for Vampire Weekend, Beach House, Grizzly Bear and The Vaccines, amongst literally hundreds of others. Friday, August 2-Sunday, August 4 at Grant Park: www.lollapalooza.com.
