Summer festival season is almost upon us and this morning (March 25), Lollapalooza revealed its 2015 lineup.

This year’s fest, which will take place from July 31 t0 August 2 in Chicago’s Grant Park, will feature Paul McCartneyMetallica and Florence + the Machine as headliners.

This marks the first time McCartney has ever played the festival and will be the first time Metallica has headlined since 1996—this was back when Lolla was still a traveling fest.

After complaints of Bonnaroo and Coachella’s woman problem, Florence Welch’s band being at the top of the bill also means Lollapalooza is the only major fest to have a female headliner this year.

Other acts on the three-day fest’s bill include Sam Smiththe WeekndTV on the Radio, Death From Above 1979, Tame ImpalaA$AP RockyFlying Lotus, Hot Chip, Alabama ShakesOf Monsters and Men and the War on Drugs.
