It's all over the net now, and it's in the Tribune too. Greg Kot has kept his mouth shut, but he's commenting on it here now:

If you're paying $200, I don't see why you wouldn't.

Even if you only see 18-20, it's still around $10 each. Not horrible.

Sometimes you're paying for an act where you do just and up as one of those staring heads. I'll admit it, that was me during The Raconteurs. Only there to get a good spot for The Killers. For Orlando Calling, I saw a total of 4 acts that I went to see, and another 2-3 simply by being there (Racounteurs, Avett Brothers, Pixies).

I'm not saying it's not all the same thing anyway you bend it... but I really do like to think of it as 'paying for what I'm here for'. I'd imagine for someone like myself, it's more of a $20 an act. Which I'm totally fine with.

Yeah, I hear ya. I don't camp much, but it's tempting prospect when the act is just that good. After their 2010 bottleneck, I may camp for Metric.

But that will be tough to do when there are over 30 acts I'm excited about. Between Lolla and Saturday of Pitchfork:

Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Hot Chip
Sleigh Bells
Wild Flag
Flying Lotus
Lotus Plaza
Youth Lagoon
Cloud Nothings
-----
The Black Keys
Black Sabbath
Jack White
Florence
The Shins
Justice
Passion Pit
Sigur Ros
The Weeknd
M83
The Afghan Whigs
Bloc Party
Franz Ferdinand
Metric
Tune-Yards
Twin Shadow
The Tallest Man On Earth
Toro Y Moi
Alabama Shakes
The Gaslight Anthem
Amadou & Miriam
Tame Impala
The Walkmen
Fun.
Neon Indian
Dum Dum Girls
Washed Out
Bear In Heaven
Chairlift
Sharon Van Etten
The War on Drugs
First Aid Kit
Santigold

What an awesome summer for music this should be for me

I'm still waiting these 7 minutes out to see it be written on Lollapalooza.com.

But yeah, it's going to be an awesome summer in my book as well. This, Warped Tour, DC101 Chili Cookoff, all of the Palm Beach SunFest acts (who I'm just seeing individually rather than going to SunFest), Coldplay... and the best part is I know there are more shows to be announced.

Oh hell no. They were HEAVILY rumored last year though (by supposed industry sources) and nothing came of that. They've been my Lolla white whale ever since.

Ah...

Okay so how long before they add Airborne Toxic Event now? I'll be counting the days.

Because there's a damn good chance I'm going to Lollapalooza at this point.

And St. Vincent, yeah.

Wait, where the fuck is Perry's on this list?

I'm guessing they just shifted all the oonts oonts to some thus-far-unnamed stage.
