Lou Reed is one of the few artists I haven't had the opportunity to see.

Him alone makes this lineup good.

And, of course, Los Camp!

Not bad, not great. It's really lacking in must-see acts IMO. But there are a ton of artists there I would be interested to see. Of particular note:

* The Killers
* Beastie Boys
* Lou Reed
* Andrew Bird
* TV on the Radio
* The Decemberists
* Neko Case
* Animal Collective
* Arctic Monkeys
* Fleet Foxes
* Bon Iver
* Deerhunter

Lineup is OK. Would like to see a few that I haven't. Might catch a ballgame like last year.

Funny how much I agree with you here

Also funny how badly I want to see Snoop Dogg

I like the lineup despite its lack of a big time headliner. We're one week away from being disappointed by the ACL lineup, but I'll be fine if it pulls some of these guys:

* Lou Reed
* Andrew Bird
* TV on the Radio
* Vampire Weekend
* The Decemberists
* Neko Case
* Animal Collective
* Band of Horses
* Of Montreal
* Fleet Foxes
* Bon Iver
* Santigold
* Deerhunter
* Passion Pit
* Los Campesinos!
* Bat For Lashes
* Chairlift
* Manchester Orchestra

I'm glad NSW isn't here so you guys are spared yet another tired story about how much I suck for canceling my 2008 Lolla trip at the eleventh hour due to factors beyond my control.

I think I remember that, it was too bad.


The lineup has a lot of artists I'd like to see...not the headliners so much. It does happen to be on a weekend, when I'm guaranteed time off from work, so maybe I'll make it down this year, finally.

Not nearly as good as last year's, but I'll probably go anyway. It has become a tradition

Tool
The Killers
Lou Reed
TV on the Radio
Arctic Monkeys
Kaiser Chiefs
Crystal Castles
Deerhunter
Portugal, the Man

and perhaps a few others

and we always end up checking out cool bands we had never heard before, so it should be fun

If I had been able to score one of those $60 tix, I would go. Alas, I was not. I just hope that DM and LC! will be playing on the same day. If not, I guess I'm just seeing DM...and whoever else's playing, that day.

Yeah, last year's lineup was incredible. It hurt not being able to go. I actually have a very good reason to go out to the Chicago area in early August, so I may try to see you guys there.

Also, please help my cause and start praying for an LC! after-party show. I'm hoping that they try to cram them into the Empty Bottle, or something, for a late-night show. Would be magnificent. I hear that they nearly burned that place to the ground, a while ago. I'd love to see a second go-round.

Just looked at the lineup again and noticed Glasvegas will be there as well as Gomez. If they just don't conflict all over the place I should have moments of Happy for three days.

Seeing for sure:

DM
Neko
Bon Iver
Of Montreal
MSTRKRFT
The Airborne Toxic Event
Killers


Maybe Gaslight Anthem if they're the best choice for the time and location

I like all of these, and I'm sure by the time I've checked some of the others out I'll have major conflicts

NSW laughing at someone cancelling. Were you vomiting or anything?

Damn, I'm moving to Chicago the week after this festival. Hopefully I will make it to future lollapaloozas.

So, I got my 3day pass. I'm super excited. I've yet to see DM live, and I missed KoL because I was sick last week. Plus, I just love Ben Folds. He's such a sweet guy and I like watching his shows. This is gonna be AWESOME!
