Lollapalooza line-up announced


Beastie Boys, back when the name still applied.

Yow. These festivals just keep getting bigger and more comprehensive, don't they? Coachella, SXSW, Glastonbury... if you can cover the cost of the ticket and the occasional plane ticket and passport, the dedicated listener wants for nothing in the way of camp out music extravaganzas.

And jumping on that dogpile is the great granddaddy of them all (Woodstock, of course, being the great-great grandfather, long since deceased). This year's line-up is ecclectic as hell, and will find Tool sharing stages with Animal Collective, Atmosphere and TV on the Radio. Head below the jump for full details.
