NASHVILLE (Billboard) - Radiohead, Rage Against the Machine, and Nine Inch Nails lead the lineup for the annual Lollapalooza festival at Chicago's Grant Park (August 1-3), organizers said Monday.

Hometown heroes Kanye West and Wilco are also on the bill, as are the Raconteurs, Love and Rockets, Gnarls Barkley, Bloc Party, the Black Keys, Broken Social Scene, Flogging Molly, Mark Ronson, Cat Power, and Lupe Fiasco. In all, some 120 acts will be featured.

Last year's Lollapalooza was the fifth-highest-grossing festival in the world, with gross sales of $9.8 million from a sell-out crowd of 167,330 over the three days, according to Billboard Boxscore.

Advance three-day passes are now on sale at $190 for a limited time; when those are sold out, the price will be $205.
