Depeche Mode, Tool, Killers Lead Lollapalooza Lineup

Grant Park

Chicago’s Grant Park will once again host Lollapalooza, which takes place August 7-9, 2009. This year’s headliners – Depeche Mode, Tool, and The Killers – are hardly the main attraction, as the event features dozens of worthwhile bands for less than 200 bucks.

One look at the schedule, posted below, reveals some heavyweight bands that weigh in just under headliner status. Kings of Leon, Beastie Boys, Lou Reed, and Jane’s Addiction stand out as non-headliners that will draw huge crowds. Beyond the biggest names, the lineup offers a slew of top talent, such as The Decemberists, Of Montreal, Animal Collective, Band of Horses, Andrew Bird, Ben Folds, TV on the Radio, Fleet Foxes, Dan Auerbach, and Silversun Pickups. Those bands are enough to make any weekend fantastic, and the surface of the lineup is barely scratched – great acts like Manchester Orchestra, The Greencards, and Portugal. The Man lurk even further down the list.

Also of great interest will be the festival’s DJ sets, which will include a special Animal Collective DJ set along with performances from MSTRKRFT, Bassnectar, Simian Mobile Disco, and Kid Cudi.
