Lollapalooza fever has officially begun.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Keys and Jack White are among the 130 acts who will take the stage at the Chicago music festival come August.
Heavy metal legends Black Sabbath will reunite at the festival in their only North American gig this year. The Afghan Whigs and At the Drive-In will also play together after a 10- and 11- year hiatus, respectively.
Chart favorites Avicii, Justice, Florence + The Machine, Bassnectar, Passion Pit and The Shins are also slated to rock out in Chicago's Grant Park this summer.
"This year our multi-colored lollipop swirls black and white with Black Sabbath, Jack White, and The Black Keys," Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell says in a press release. "Two Electronic acts, Justice and Avicii will be presented on the main stages ... Can it get any heavier in the park?"
The eighth annual three-day festival will take place the weekend of August 3.
