Lollapalooza confirm 2016 lineup, unveil daily lineup

Over the past few weeks, it seemed that everyone was trying to figure out who will be headlining 2016’s Lollapalooza. Since the speculations began, “sources” had confirmed that giants like Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers and the newly reunited LCD Soundsystem would headline the three-day music festival. On Wednesday (March 23), festival organizers unveiled the complete list for the upcoming summer gig.

As the “sources” leaked, Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and LCD Soundsystem will in fact headline the festival’s 25th incarnation, but they will be joined by a slew of other great musicians. Other performers will include J. Cole, Lana Del Rey, Ellie Goulding, Disclosure, Major Lazer, Jane’s Addiction, Haim, The 1975, City and Colour, M83, Halsey, Bloc Party, Saint Motel, Melanie Martinez, The Joy Formidable,The Front Bottoms,Grimes, Hardwell, Martin Garrix, Silversun Pickups, MuteMath, Two Door Cinema Club, Big Gram, Foals, Bastille, Miike Snow, and many more

The lineup for the 2016 edition of the festival is so massive, that it looks like after teasing last year, the festival will officially become a four-day event. Instead of beginning on Friday, like it has in the past, the show will now kick-off on Thursday. The four-day festival is set to take place during the weekend of July 28-31 at Chicago’s Grant Park. Tickets for the summer festival will go on sale beginning today at 11 am EST on the festival’s website.

For now, the complete list of acts, as well as the daily lineups, can be seen below.

Riot Fest Announce Bigger Tenth Anniversary News


With the insane line-up that has already been revealed for all three Riot Fests, now comes word that things will get even more awesome in September;  ten of the band will perform their classic albums, in full.

Earlier this week when The Offspring had been rumored to be performing at the weekend-long festivals, which had later been confirmed as true, the band revealed they would be playing their hit album, Smash in full.

The other bands that will be doing the same can been seen below:

Weezer—The Blue Album

Jane’s Addiction—Nothing’s Shocking

The Descendents—Milo Goes to College

The Get Up Kids—Something to Write Home About

Slayer—Reign in Blood

The Offspring—Smash (we already knew)

NOFX—Punk in Drublic


Naked Raygun—Throb Throb

If you counted over the list, you would notice that one band is missing, and no, it wasn’t a typo. Festival organizers are currently keeping that last one underwraps.

In a press release they stated, “[we] have promised to unveil it in a separate announcement in the upcoming weeks, as well as additional 10th anniversary surprise.”

We are beginning to get the feeling it might be The Cure performing Disintegration or another one of their hit albums in full.

Riot Fest Toronto will take place on September 6-7, Chicago will take place September 12-14 and Denver will take place September 19-21, so get your tickets now before they sell out.

Riot Fest Announces Line-ups For All Three Editions


After waiting for what felt like ages to see who would be performing at all three Riot Fests, the festival organizers have revealed all the acts that will be taking the stage at the three different incarnations of it.

The line-ups are proving to be a who’s-who in the rock genre with acts like The Cure, Jane’s Addition, the National, Weezer, Social Distortion, Slayer and The Offspring which we assumed would be true following the reveal of all their upcoming tour dates in support of the 20th anniversary of their album, Smash.

Chicago, which leads the pack with the most artists will take place at Humboldt Park during the weekend of September 12-14. 

The Denver edition of the festival which will take place at May Farm in Byers, CO during the weekend of September 19-21 will also feature some of the same artists as the Chicago version, but not as extensive as the parent festival.

As for Toronto, The National, City and Colour, Rise Against and Billy Talent had already been confirmed, but now the full line-up for that show which will take place at Downsview Park on September 6 and 7 including a last-minute addition of The Cure to the list.

If you’re drooling over the complete line-ups, then don’t bother reading anymore and just head on over to the festival’s official site and get your tickets because we can guarantee you that they will be sold out soon, but if you want to continue down to the line-up lists, please do.
