Lollapalooza lineup announced: What year is it, again?

Posted on

The long-running alt fest has just confirmed its 2009 lineup, and this year’s headliners include an awful lot of ’80s and ’90s favorites: The Beastie Boys, Jane’s Addiction, Tool, and Depeche Mode, along with more recent hit makers the Killers and Kings of Leon. A few other highlights of the three-day festival — held August 7-9 in Chicago’s Grant Park — are Animal Collective, Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, TV on the Radio, Lou Reed, Andrew Bird, Neko Case, and Santigold.

So who’s heading to this year’s Lollapalooza? Is this a super-exciting lineup, or do some of these older headliners seem a little stale?
