Lollapalooza 2012

Holy crap, the early bird tickets sold out in 15 minutes. Got 'em though! I am SUPER uncomfortable buying tickets to a festival that we have hardly ANY lineup for, can't believe how underwraps it is this year, BUT it was a gift, so I won't say no to that.

All we have right now is a very unofficial suspicious scheduling/semi-confirmed list, but I like what I see:

Semi-Confirmed

Neon Indian
OFWGKTA
Passion Pit
The Shins
Sharon Van Etten

Suspicious Tour Schedule

Big Gigantic
Bloc Party
Childish Gambino
Florence and the Machine
Garbage
Justice
Kaskade
M83
tUnE-yArDs
The Walkmen

Personal Conversations

Black Keys
Blind Pilot
St. Vincent
Steel Pulse

Other

Alabama Shakes
At The Drive-In
Beck
Sigur Ros
Jack White

Just to make Cobbler even more jealous: The Throne is also being rumored. Jay-Z, Kanye or Beyonce is likely to perform, but most likely of all is The Throne.

Still holding out hope for PJ Harvey. Has she been ruled out?

Bloc Party is doing a festival in Los Angeles, Montreal, and Chicago in 3 days. That's crazy.

Alright.

This lineup has already exceeded last year's, and it hasn't even been officially announced.

Fucking Bloc Party! Easily one of my favorite bands that I've yet to see live.

Because they're on the same weekend, the Osheaga festival in Montreal and Lollapalooza will have many crossover acts. So many of the bands listed in Ashley's first post are highly likely as they're confirmed for Montreal.

Of course, I would have liked to have Jack White (and St. Vincent), so if he confirmed for Lolla, maybe that means he'll be added to Montreal, too. #onecanhope

If you want a suspicious schedule...

I know they played Lolla last year but Coldplay has the 5th/6th off and is playing back to back Chicago shows on the 7th and 8th...

Haha.

Well I just realized that Lolla is 3rd, 4th, 5th. Thought that weekend was 4th, 5th, 6th. So I think we can probably imagine it wont happen anyways.

The Airborne Toxic Event just got confirmed for Montreal. I wouldn't be shocked if they found their way to Lollapalooza.

Okay I am probably wrong, again. Looks like they are on Saturday in Montreal, so chances are that's not happening either.
