    Most the headliners suck and they got Passion Pit/ Franz Ferdinand to make things worse. O well maybe next year...

    Franz Ferdinand is one of the redeeming factors...I hope Afghan Whigs come and play here somewhere.

    I don't really know what people were expecting if they don't like this line up. Sure, it's definitely inferior to Coachella, but it easily trumps many past Lollapalooza line ups, and it DOMINATES last year's.

    The undercard might, But I feel like the headliners are fairly similar across the board. Muse, Eminem, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, My Morning Jacket, and Deadmau5 were all very different. The Black Keys, Jack White, Black Sabbath, Florence, RHCP, and Avicii are a lot of the same. I know Lolla usually has a headliner that isn't a headliner(Phoenix, Yeah Yeah Yeah's, MMJ) but all three of those are way more worthy then Florence. I mean, come on. I know she's good and I like her, but still. Good for Avicii though I guess. I am guessing ATDI will be treated like A Perfect Circle was.

    You know they gotta book what they can get, right? 4 of those 6 are the same. 2 are different.

    Sigur Rós made me very jealous and almost made me wanna go despite difficulties getting time off from work. Now I don't feel so bad. Meh.

    It's just kinda boring. Unoriginal. Look at Coachella's lineup this year. Top to bottom, you can tell a lot of care and effort was put into crafting that thing. You just don't get that with Lollapalooza. And so I don't get the urge to give them a bunch of money and go to their festival. Tons of the bands have already played, for one thing. And like someone else said, a lot of the headliners just feel like the same band. There's no creativity to it.

    The Afghan Whigs is arguably the band I'd be most excited about, and one of the few that sets Lollapalooza apart this year; but even so, Greg Dulli has played Lollapalooza before.

    So, yeah, I dunno. I'm just not impressed.

    Fun game. Imagine Coachella is now in early august and Lollapalooza is in April, and they announced their line ups accordingly. How boring is Lollapalooza with the first ATDI/Afghan Whigs/Sigur Ros/Weeknd/Jack White/etc. dates? Is it better than Coachella? Certainly not. But there is a little more luster on a whole bunch of the bookings...

    A lot of those artists aren't playing both festivals, though. It's not really a matter of which came first. I just get the feeling the Coachella organizers put a little more effort into it this year, and it really shows.

    Incidentally, the Chicago Sun-Times article was taken down. Either because Lollapalooza really wants to wait until midnight, or because they realized the mistake they made. We'll find out in two hours.

    I doubt the sun times fucked up. And every single music outlet already posted stories. So Lolla should just own up to it ad post it.

    Yeah, I completely understand it, just seems like not a lot of variety.

    I have always believed this to be true. Coachella going first is a huge advantage in terms of announcing lineups. This lineup is fucking awesome. It's on par with Sasquatch, and Coachella. Although the Lolla experience does not compare to Coachella.

    LOL at Avicii being one of the headliners.

    Black Sabbath vs. Avicii

    I knew that Brazil leak was legit. It just seemed way too realistic. I still hate that we got dumped on with RHCP, but I'm actually shocked that we got Sabbath. I'm praying it's not Jack White against Sabbath. That would piss me off to no end.

    5/23-25 - Summer Camp
    7/18-20 - Pitchfork Music Festival

    How are they headlining. Did you see the billing on the lolla site? ATDI is 6th......

    Rolling Stone is saying that those six are the headliners.

    Scheduling paradigm shift? It wasn't always the way it is now, maybe they are changing it up a little this year. The Avicii/Justice/Flo/ATDI billing make no sense with the current system.

    Sabbath, Sigur Ros, The Afghan Whigs, Tallest Man on Earth, Sharon Van Etten, and JEFF the Brotherhood are good gets. The rest is average or worse.
