Aussie Lollapalooza Invasion: Locals Head To Big Day Out's US Partner

11 April 2012 | 4:07 pm | Staff Writer

Recently partnered with Big Day Out, Lollapalooza boasts a healthy Australian contingent in 2012.

More The Jezabels More The Jezabels

The line-up for this year's Lollapalooza festival was announced today, with The Temper Trap, The Jezabels and Tame Impala all named on the bill.

The Australian contingent is unsurprising given last year's news that Big Day Out would be partnering with the Chicago festival as part of the Australian event's ongoing restructure. All three acts are on their way to being established in the US.

The event is headlined by Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Back Keys, Jack White, At The Drive-In, Florence + The Machine and Black Sabbath.

The Afghan Whigs announced last year they were reforming and will have played a few festivals before appearing at Lollapalooza.
