The Cure, Mumford and Sons to play Lollapalooza

Posted:
CHICAGO (AP) -

The Cure will headline Lollapalooza in Chicago this summer for the first time in the festival's more than 20-year history.

   Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell announced the lineup of about 130 bands on Monday. It also includes headliners Mumford and Sons, The Killers and Nine Inch Nails.

   The lineup includes Lollapalooza's well-known mix of indie bands, singer-songwriters and country, hip-hop, rock and electronic acts.

Musicians come from across the U.S. and the world, including countries like Australia, Brazil, Chile, Greece and Sweden.

   The festival runs from Aug. 2 to 4 in Grant Park. It's Lollapalooza's ninth year in Chicago. Farrell started the festival in 1991.

   Last year's festival sold out at 100,000 visitors a day, or 300,000 over the three-day event.
