Lollapalooza 2009: Jane's Addiction, Beastie Boys, Depeche Mode expected to headline

Jane's Addiction

There has been a lot of speculation surrounding who is going to play this year's Lollapalooza, which is set for August 7 to 9 in Grant Park. Recently I guessed a number of bands likely to show up at the festival, and it looks like at least two of those predictions will come to pass.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Jane's Addiction, Beastie Boys and Depeche Mode will headline, with three other headliners yet to be revealed.

Per usual, Lolla seems to be covering its musical bases, with the three bands representing alternative rock, hip-hop and synth-pop.

The festival is expected to announce the full lineup next month.

What's your take on these headliners? Are you pumped, or praying for better acts to be announced come April?
