The Weeknd, Bruno Mars, Jack White and Arctic Monkeys will headline this year’s Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago.

Travis Scott, The National, Vampire Weekend and Odesza also were among the performers announced on Wednesday morning on Lollapalooza’s website.

More than 180 acts will play on eight stages from August 2-5 in Chicago’s lakefront Grant Park.

Founder Perry Farrell launched Lollapalooza as a touring festival in 1991. It’s been held in Chicago since 2005.

The line-up includes LL Cool J, St. Vincent, Logic, Khalid, Walk the Moon, Dua Lipa and Perry Farrell’s Kind Heaven, which will feature guest musicians performing songs from the Jane’s Addiction singer’s upcoming solo album.

Last year’s festival drew 100,000 people a day over four days. Organisers say it had a $245 million (Dh899.75 million) local economic impact in 2017.
