The festival celebrates its 25th anniversary and, according to Billboard, this year’s line up will also include Lana Del Rey and J. Cole. In a change to the usual three-day event, this year’s festival will take place over four days instead, running from July 28th till the 31st.

As we’ve announced before, Radiohead’s festival appearances this year are already shaping up nicely including headline slots at Iceland’s Secret Solstice, Spain’s Primavera Sound, and Lollapalooza Berlin.

As for LCD Soundsystem it will headline London’s Lovebox Festival, Coachella and Primavera Sound, while rockers the Red Hot Chili Peppers have been lined up to be T In The Park headliners.

The official lineup for Lollapalooza is sure to be announced when tickets go on sale on Tuesday March 22nd.

In related Radiohead news, frontman Thom Yorke recently posted on Twitter that he was “f**ked off” as thousands of Radiohead fans struggled to get hold of tickets to see the band in London later this year.

The huge demand for tickets for the show led to thousands of fans queuing in search of tickets after they went on sale on March 18th.

The band will play a three-night stand at the Roundhouse in Camden, London in May. The relatively intimate venue has a capacity of 3300 and will be their first UK gigs since they did two-nights at the O2, which holds a much bigger crowd of 20,000, in 2012.
