A good friend of mine suggested that I buy tickets to the 2013 Lollapalooza music festival this year, even before the official line-up was announced, because it would be a music fest that I wouldn’t want to miss. That friend was right because the line-up for this year’s Lollapalooza festival has leaked its way online and it reveals that NINE INCH NAILS is among the acts that will be performing this year. Now, the folks at Lolla won’t be officially announcing this year’s line-up until April 9th but somehow, an advertisement for the line-up has already been published in a magazine … that has been photographed and posted online. Click below to see which other musical acts will be performing at the 3-Day Lollapalooza festival in Chicago, IL this August.

As with any bit of leaked information, it’s wise to hold off on celebrating until the news is officially confirmed but … yeah, this line-up looks totally legit to me. If this line-up pans out, this Lollapalooza date is the FIRST concert date for NIN this year that has been announced. We learned a few weeks ago that NIN would be reforming and hitting the road for a new world tour later this year … it’s possible that this Lolla date in August will be when NIN gets back in action. I’ve already purchased my ticket for the fest so I’ll be there … will you?
