The line-up for this year's Lollapalooza festival has been announced.

The Cure, Mumford & Sons, The Killers and Nine Inch Nails will headline the festival, which takes place in Chicago from August 2 - 4.

Other bands playing include New Order, Queens Of The Stone Age, The National and Phoenix.

Three-day passes for the festival have already sold out. However, there will be a limited number of day passes which will go on sale on April 3 at 9am EST. You can find more information at Lollapalooza's website.
