Eminem Set To Headline Lollapalooza Festival

Posted on February 9th, 2011

Eminem will headline the annual Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago’s Grant Park this year, taking place from August 5-7.

Reliable industry sources told Chicago Tribune music critic Greg Kot that in addition to Slim Shady toplining the fest, Muse and Foo Fighters will be gracing the stage in Illinois. Though the official lineup won’t be announced until April, bands and artists including Best Coast, Girl Talk, Lykke Li and Crystal Castles will also reportedly perform during the event.

Em comes in a long line of hip-hop artists to appear at the 20-year-old Lolla, which has been stationed in Chicago since 2004. Last year’s event featured Cypress Hill, Erykah Badu, J. Cole, B.o.B and more, while previous festivals have included performances from Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, K’naan, Kid Sister and more.
