Lollapalooza Moves Up Lineup Announcement After Leak

lollapalooza 2013 lineup announcement
Thanks to the poster showing the full lineup that leaked out last week (which hey, coincidentally appeared shortly after rival Chicago-based fests Pitchfork Music Festival and Spring Awakening announced their full lineups), Lollapalooza has pushed forward its big announcement up from April 9 to today at noon. Single day passes will then go on sale at 10am on Wednesday, April 3; three-day passes are already completely sold out.

In case you somehow missed it last week, here's the leaked poster, which shows the confirmed lineup.
