In addition, Bassnectar, Canadian alternative R&B act the Weeknd, rock band Alabama Shakes and folk-pop quintet Of Monsters and Men will also perform.
The Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney, who performed the last concert ever at Candlestick Park, will play on the opening night of the festival on Friday, July 31.

For last year’s 10-year celebration of Lollapalooza in its current incarnation, headliners included Eminem, Skrillex, Kings of Leon and Arctic Monkeys.
Lollapalooza was originally conceived and created back in 1991 by Jane’s Addiction singer Perry Farrell as a farewell tour for his band. The festival ran annually until 1997, and was revived in 2003.
