CHICAGO (AP) -- The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Keys and English indie darlings Florence and the Machine will headline this year's three-day Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago.

Jane's Addiction lead singer and Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell announced the lineup Wednesday. Other big acts include Black Sabbath and Jack White.

This is the festival's eighth year at Chicago's Grant Park. The three-day event begins Aug. 3.

The schedule of more than 120 bands features Lollapalooza's signature mix of mainstream headliners and indie bands. The global factor is strong with acts from across Europe, Chile, Australia and Malaysia. It also reflects American music hubs like Austin, Nashville and Portland, spanning genres from rock to pop, rap to electronic dance.

Last year's festival sold out, with 270,000 visitors during the three-day event.
