The Cure, Jay-Z Among Rumored Lolla Acts

First round of Lollapalooza speculation hits the Internet

You know summer can't be too far off when the Lollapalooza artist rumors start to fly.

The first full-fledged leaks for the Aug. 2-4 Grant Park bacchanal began to seep out over the weekend.

According to, rumored headliners include The Cure, Jay-Z, Mumford & Sons, The Flaming Lips, Blur and Skrillex, along with artists such as rapper Kendrick Lamar, DJ Steve Aoki and Alabama Shakes, whose 2012 Lolla set was canceled due to the storm evacuation on Day 2.

The Twitter feed @TheLollaLeaker is also posting artist rumors as they come in. The anonymous tweeter got Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell's goat last year, but as it turned out, only guessed one of the headliners correct (Red Hot Chili Peppars).

Lollapalooza organizers typically release the full lineup in April, so expect several more weeks of gossip and hearsay.
