The event -- now in its 20th year -- will also feature Deftones, Explosions in the Sky, Black Lips, Coldplay and Eminem -- plus about 120 more acts. The lineup was announced today.

The Foos are hot-plus of late, recently scoring their first-ever No. 1 album with "Wasting Light," which was released in April. Click here for an exclusive video lesson with frontman Dave Grohl as he walks viewers through "Rope" and "The Pretender."
