Kings Of Leon, Depeche Mode cited

The rumour mill for American festival Lollapalooza has begun with Stateside reports hinting that Kings Of Leon, Depeche Mode and Jane's Addiction are set to be named as headliners.

Lollapalooza was founded in the early 90s by Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell Originally the event toured through the United States, at one point even reaching Australia.

However, money problems have seen recent instalments held at a static venue in Chicago. Taking place over three days, it remains one of America's premiere music events and retains traces of its reputation for wild parties.

Jane's Addiction are apparently in the running for a spiritual homecoming. The funk-rock group are already confirmed for Scotland's T In The Park and could well be set for a busy festival season.

Perry Farrell & Co. may be set to be joined by Kings Of Leon. The Followills have famously had difficulty cracking the States, enjoying far higher levels of exposure in Britain than their homeland.

English synth-rock giants Depeche Mode may also be about to headline, according to Billboard. The full line up will be released in April, with organisers having to go some way to beating last year's line up of Radiohead, Kanye West and Nine Inch Nails.

Lollapalooza takes place in Grant Park, Chicago between August 7th - 9th.
