Alternative rockers Kings of Leon and Arctic Monkeys are set to headline Lollapalooza 2014 alongside rap icon Eminem and EDM superstar Skrillex. All four acts are Lollapalooza alumni. In 2011, Arctic Monkeys made their debut and Eminem headlined. Kings of Leon headlined the festival in 2009 and Skrillex performed in 2011 and 2013. The festival’s 10th Anniversary is set to take place on August 1-3 in Grant Park, IL. Last year’s lineup boasted stellar rock artists like Nine Inch Nails, Queens of The Stone Age, Mumford and Sons, The Killers, The Cure, Imagine Dragons, Ghost B.C., and many more. A complete lineup with additional headliners is expected to be announced next week.
Eminem released his much-anticipated The Marshall Mathers LP 2 in 2013, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and has sold over 2 million copies to date. Arctic Monkeys just cleaned up at the 2014 BRIT Awards, winning Best British Group and British Album of The Year for their disc, AM. Kings of Leon are currently on an arena tour in support of their Grammy-nominated new album, Mechanical Bull. Both AM and Mechanical Bull made TheRockRevival.com’s list of the Top 50 Rock Albums of 2013. Skrillex just announced The Mothership Tour, which kicks off on May 23 at the Zoo Ampitheatre in Oklahoma City, OK. – by Matt Bishop
