In an attempt to possibly take some of the spotlight off Coachella this week, Lollapalooza released a "same, same but different" lineup for the eighth installment of the Chicago festival in Grant Park. As at Coachella, the Black Keys and At the Drive-In are performing. But unlike Coachella, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jack White will make an appearance. And in a giant coup, the Black Sabbath reunion will not happen in Indio, but in the Midwest. The Afghan Whigs will also tour together for the first time in a decade.

Who else is playing Lolla that we wish was doing Coachella? Alabama Shakes, for one. Burger Records' FIDLAR, for another. And lastly, there's a ton of EDM acts at Lollapalooza this year: Avicii and Justice will be at the main stages, and Bassnectar, Kaskade, Calvin Harris, NERO, Santigold, Knife Party, Zeds Dead, and Big Gigantic will perform as well. Lollapalooza will be held on Aug. 3 to 5.
