Decent line-up...but also the same weekend as the Virgin Festival in Baltimore.

Lollapalooza has been pretty expensive over the last few years...I may wait to choose between the two pending the Virgin line-up (that already has the Police, beastie boys and Smashing Pumpkins).

That looks like a kickass list

I like about one-third to half of the bands on the list.

Thanks for the note about V-fest.

Though, doesn't it seem strange that the two would want to compete?

I'm kind of diggin' this lineup, it's got me tempted to go, I could stay at my sister's so accomodations wouldn't be a problem. The fact that I have a ticket to The Police on August 3 is a little bit of a problem but I could probably get a swap for August 1.

The Pumpkins are playing Virgin Fest?

As much as I can't pass up Pearl Jam since they're not doing the US much this summer, there's just not enough outside of them to justify hitting up this festival.

Excluding Coachella, the big festivals this year have taken a big slip comparing to their 2006 lineups.

Because the music taste is better and they are fairly "mature" festivals. Virgin, Lollapalooza, bonaroo, etc. etc. etc. have only been around for less than ten years. Reading and the like have been around a lot longer!

American festivals are changing, really.

Worth checking out the smaller ones, too.

OMG! Pearl Jam, Muse, Snow Patrol, Interpol, Daft Punk, Regina... so many acts on that list that I wanna see! And it's in Chicago only?

omg.. Iggy and the Stooges really plays everywhere, last year when we saw him in Sziget, same for this year plus Benicassim in Barcelona and that weird English festival, um Glastonbury, and now he´s doing US festivals too..

Same for Amy Winehouse, Juliette and the Licks and, of course, clap your hands.

I like Juliettes and Iggys ass but never got around to see Amy´s.

You think the music taste is better? I disagree, basically its the same bands.

I´d agree if we were speaking about the Montreux Jazz Festival though.

Al Jarreau, Beastie Boys, Beenie Man, Booker T & the MCs, Candy Dulfer, Chick Corea, Dr. John, Truffaz feat Ed Harcourt, Faithless, Foreigner, George Benson, Gianna Nannini, India.Arie, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Cliff, Lambchop, Laurent Garnier, Living Colour, Motorhead, Norah Jones, Pat Metheny, Pet Shop Boys, Placebo, Rufus Wainwright, Seal, Sly and the Family Stone, Solomon Burke, the b52s, Chemical Brothers, Tori Amos,Van Morrison, Wu Tang Clan and Youssou N Dour.

Beats every festival up to now. Claude Nobs is just great, he handles it all.
