Anything that has New Order and The Killers (and The National, but they both do) blows what Bonnaroo out of the water in my eyes!

Besides the point though. Pretty kickass speculation so far. Can't wait to see the official lineup.

I briefly forgot I would have to be in the same park as Imagine Dragons.

I'm probably not going, unless the Cure are confirmed. Then I'll pick up a one-day.

The Killers? Is this band really worthy of headlining Lollapalooza? Or maybe I'm just the only one who finds them about the most painfully average band of the last decade.

If I'm going, I'm avoiding that stage. Don't want another "fun." experience.

I think that award goes to the Kings of Leon.

Oh my God! The Killers?!?!?!? Holy Fucking SHIT!!?!!!!

I've never seen them at Lolla! What a magnificent opportunity this is!

In fact! HELL, I've never seen The National at Lollapalooza or Mumford and Sons at Lollapalooza or Phoenix at Lollapalooza!!!!! What an amazing, original lineup. We are all blessed by the opportunity that one of the world's largest festivals has offered to us as it's TOP FUCKING BILLING.





Oh and Vampire Weekend, I've actually never seen them at Lolla, but I JUST saw them at Pitchfork last year.

What a fucking joke. Kot leaked this shit about 5 days ago and I've just been trying to get over it ever since. If the Cure don't end up being a big surprise name, I'm going to save my money and just go one day. There's no way The Cure are coming to North America and only playing one gig.

This had better have one hell of an undercard. Where is the EDM? What happened to that rule? I mean...This is literally one of the most pathetic things I have ever witnessed in my life of attending festivals. I know that 2011 was bad, but at least the headliners were worthwhile.

And if you didn't catch the sarcasm: I have seen every one of the leaked confirmed bands excluding The Postal Service. And four of the five I have seen at Lolla in the past. Two of them already as headliners (The Killers and Phoenix). This is an absolute disaster. The only solace I take in all of this is that Lolla considers itself a festival with 9 headliners now because of the Perry's expansion. That means, hopefully, there are still 5 unknown headliners.

I'm also angry because I missed the Souvinier ticket sale by just a minute or two today. Based on these leaks, I'm not really willing to spend more than $75 a ticket.

The only bands I've seen on that list are Imagine Dragons and The Killers. To which, The Killers are one of my favorite bands and easily the best festival stage show I've seen. So... I'm excited!
