The Cure, Mumford & Sons, The Killers and Nine Inch Nails are among the 130 acts confirmed for this year's Lollapalooza, which is set to take over Chicago's Grant Park Aug. 2-4.

The three-day festival, co-created by Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell in 1991, will also include performances by The Postal Service, Phoenix, New Order, The National, Vampire Weekend, Queens of the Stone Age and The Lumineers, among others. The day-by-day schedule is shown below.

This summer's event will be the first ever for The Cure, while inaugural veterans Nine Inch Nails and Mumford & Sons are returning acts, along with a handful of others.

Three-day Lollapalooza passes sold out within three hours of going on sale late last month, while single-day tickets are on sale at the festival website.

Fans can prepare for the August festivities by listening to Lollapalooza Radio via digital radio provider iHeartRadio.

Like years past, Lolla will feature several food and drink vendors, a kids zone and various activities which will be revealed in the weeks prior to the festival.

Lollapalooza has expanded to include two international stops: Brazil and Chile. Lollapalooza Brasil took place late last month, with 2014 dates -- April 18-20 -- just announced. Lollapalooza Chile will take place this weekend, April 6-8, in Santiago.
