2009 Lollapalooza Festival Headliners

Event founder Perry Farrell announced the headliners for the 2009 Lollapalooza Festival today which include Depeche Mode, Tool, the Killers, Jane's Addition, Beastie Boys, and Kings of Leon.

Lollapalooza, produced by Austin-based C3 Presents, last year sold out all three days for the first time since the festival was reborn as a weekend-long stand-alone event in Chicago. C3 Presents is in the middle of a 10-year agreement with Chicago Park District to produce the event in the city's prime downtown park space.

''At Lollapalooza, we're selling more tickets than ever," Farrell told Reuters. "People need an even bigger excuse to escape more than ever and there is no better escape than going to a festival and just ... taking in music."
