Lollapalooza, which will run from Friday 31 July until Sunday 2 August in Chicago, will be headlined by no-names Paul McCartney, Metallica and Florence and The Machine. A wide range of artists will making an appearance at the festival as well, from Sam Smith, to Flying Lotus, to FKA Twigs, to the solo project of Radiohead drummer Philip Selway.
