Sounds crazy, but the Lollapalooza music festival is a year away from the legal drinking age, and organizers have decided to bring in the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Foo Fighters[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Coldplay[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Eminem[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Muse[/lastfm] to help celebrate its entry into the 20s.

Organizers didn’t leave the 80s out of this year’s festivities; [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Big Audio Dynamite[/lastfm] and (wait for it) [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Cars[/lastfm] will also be in attendance.

In addition to the main stage events, this year’s festival will feature the debut of a 15,000-capacity dance tent that will host performances by the likes of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kid Cudi[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Girl Talk[/lastfm].

Festival founder and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jane’s Addiction[/lastfm] frontman Perry Farrell said this year’s milestone snuck up on him since he’s been busy with the Jane’s Addiction reunion, but he did take time to reflect on the festival’s 20 year legacy.

“I just feel so fortunate that I was able to make something so wonderful for the musicians and the audience,” Farrell says. “It’s just astounding where it has evolved to. In 1991, we had seven groups and we were performing on dirt fields.”

This year’s festival will be held at Chicago’s Grant Park from August 5-7. For a full list of this year’s talent (and we mean FULL list), check out the festival’s website.
