Lollapalooza Line-up Lands
Tuesday, 8 April 2008
To be held in early August over a two-day extravaganza, Lollapalooza will head to Chicago's Grant Park, with this year's 'vision' comprising a cleaner, sustainable area once the show is over.
"Lollapalooza in Chicago is more than just a concert. It is a musical, cultural, community experience, and is the first of its kind in this beautiful space.
"Grant Park is a jewel that the citizens of Chicago hold dear, and takes center stage as the star of this colossal show. Come to enjoy the music, the food, the art, the park, and each other.
"Remember that this is your party Chicago, and you should be proud. And when Lollapalooza packs up on Monday, we hope that the park and the city are just a little better than they were before the show began."
The following line-up suggests it might be bloody large, with online kings Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails taking centre stage throughout the festival. One can only hope that there is some sort of cyber battle to determine, once and for all, which band is the most 1337.
Radiohead, Rage Against The Machine, Nine Inch Nails, Kanye West, Wilco, The Raconteurs, Love And Rockets, Gnarls Barkley, Bloc Party, The Black Keys, Broken Social Scene, Flogging Molly, Mark Ronson, Cat Power, Lupe Fiasco, The National, G. Love & Special Sauce, Sharon Jones, Explosions In The Sky, Brand New, Gogol Bordello, Stephen Malkmus, Dierks Bentley, Okkeril River, Amadou & Mariam, Blues Traveler, John Butler Trio, Girl Talk, CSS, Battles, Jamie Lidell, Butch walker, Mates Of State, Spank Rock, Brazilian Girls, Chromeo, Duffy, The Kills Tags
