I was already considering a trip down for Lolla, but now, it's looking like it MUST happen.

The only band I'm interested in from that lineup is Radiohead. Seriously, why can't there be a festival featuring REM, Pearl Jam, Radiohead, Tori Amos, Porcupine Tree, Muse, Keane, Snow Patrol, The Killers... you know people that are actually well known? It seems like every time there is a festival I don't even know 90% or more of who's playing!

Okay I'll go away now.

Nice lineup. I'm already making one trip to Chicago this summer, but this might make me think about making another.

Muse played Lolla last summer...

but, anyway, it'd be unbelievably difficult to get all of those bands to show up at one festival.

Zoots, you NEED TO GO LISTEN TO BLOC PARTY!!!! I know you've been told this before by Xavi!

They only have 2 albums: "Silent Alarm" and "A Weekend In The City", so it's not like you have a huge back catalogue to cull through.

Listen to Bloc Party and then you can be in the know!!!

So did Pearl Jam

The headliners are all well known... Rage, Kanye? You don't think they're well known?

I second listening to Bloc Party and Broken Social Scene. do it!

and i'm still excited about Monday for the full lineup

anyone have any predictions on how fast tickets will sell out?

Zootles, I'm here to help. I'm going to assign you one album by each of the artists (other than Radiohead) I was excited to see on this lineup:


The Raconteurs - Either of their two works
Wilco - Anything but AM. I think you'd like A Ghost is Born best.
Kanye West - Graduation
Grizzly Bear - Yellow House
Gnarls Barkley - Either of their two works, again
The Black Keys - Rubber Factory
Broken Social Scene - You Forgot it in People
Bloc Party - Silent Alarm
Cat Power - You Are Free or Moon Pix or The Greatest
Battles - Mirrored



Now go listen.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys! Yeah I do have some Bloc Party in my itunes but I just haven't gone out and got their album yet. And AB, I know Rage and Kanye are popular. I'm just not that into them.
