UPDATE 23/03/16: The Lollapalooza 2016 lineup is here to make you feel all the FOMO.
Original story: Industry gums have been flapping about the imminent lineup announcement for Lollapalooza 2016. And if the reports are on the money, then this year’s festival is going to be so massive that in about 5 seconds you’ll be fighting the urge to sell your car and buy a plane ticket straight to Chicago.
America’s Windy City will play host to the 25th anniversary of the festival, which was founded in 1991 by Jane’s Addiction’s Perry Farrell, and according to the rumour mill, it’s set to be headlined by a power three-way.
Billboard reports that Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers and LCD Soundsystem will grace the Grant Park stage from July 28th to 31st, celebrating the event’s silver jubilee with a bonus fourth day of festivities.
And as if that wasn’t enough, according to the outlet’s source, Lana freaking Del Rey and J. Cole are also expected to perform.
FOMO, your name is Lollapalooza 2016.
But Aussies lacking the spare couple of grand needed to cover flights, tickets and accommo for the festival without selling a kidney can draw some fleeting solace from the fact that Radiohead and Lana Del Rey are both rumoured hot tickets to appear on this year’s Splendour In The Grass lineup.
LCD Soundsystem and the Chili Peppers, however, have been pretty much ruled out.

The first official Lollapalooza lineup announcement, meanwhile, is set to be unveiled this week.
