Lollapalooza hasn’t announced their lineup, but thanks to the Internet we already know who’s going to be on the bill. Kendrick Lamar,  and 2 Chainz are among the many acts tapped to hit Chicago’s Grant Park for the long-running music festival.

Angel Haze, Azealea Banks, and Theophilus London are among the other names on deck.

From Fake Shore Drive:

After a few fake lineup leaks and rumors of various performers popping up almost daily, it appears the official Lollapalooza lineup has impacted. Twitter handle @EDM_Chicago somehow got their paws on what appears to be an official poster which shows each and every act slated to appear.

Is this the 100% legit? It appears to be, but the official announcement is due on April 9th. You knew people weren’t going to be able to wait until then. But while the names are hazy and the pic is grainy, it looks like Kendrick Lamar, 2 Chainz and Chance The Rapper will be holding it down on the hip-hop side. Take a look and the flick and see for yourself.

Fake Shore’s Andrew Barber later tweeted confirmation that the line-up is official.

With Lamar and 2 Chainz on the bill, Lollapalooza’s lineup is looking pretty live, but it’s not the first time that they’ve turned to rap music to sell tickets. Previous performers have included Lupe Fiasco, J. Cole, and Eminem.

Lollapalooza 2013 kicks off Aug. 2-4th.
