3 day passes sold out.
Single day and VIP still available.
Fresh off his "JUICY AUSTRALIA TOUR"
Pretty surprised that Jack White is the main Sunday night headliner. Wonder if Justice will actually close one of the main stages on Sunday night? Hopefully they don't have a meltdown like their set this weekend to end the Lolla weekend.
Same here. Oh well, either I selectfully choose what day to go, or try to choose a different festival to attend.
PS: Nice meeting you caeden, I was so fuckin out of it after Dre, hope I didnt come off like a Zombie too much.
Eric Prydz: EP/IC: 11/29 @ Aragon Ballroom
Coachella: 4/11-13 @ Empire Polo Fields
Friday's the only day I'd would really love to see, although Sunday is perfectly acceptable. Unfortunately I think festival attendance is a bust for me this year in general... but I'd say this one is definitely desirable
i said "fuck it" and bought all three days. yes, it is more expensive going a la carte. yes, i have to change wristbands each day. and yes, i don't have reentry privileges. saturday's headliners aren't ideal, granted, but the undercard has several bands i want to see/check out/revisit. so i can justify the cost to myself with relative ease. i'm just mad that i waited to buy my pass, so i ended up paying more. oh, well. lesson learned.
nice to meet you too, paulb. you didn't come off as a zombie. i met getbetter after real estate on sunday; now, he was a zombie
Does MJA still post here?
Waiting for his version of the Sahara thread for Perry's.
Likely to be those acts at Perry's even if it isn't broken down on the line-up page cause the leak proved to be pretty much correct about everything else.
I'm sure this has been discussed SOMEWHERE, but f it, I'm gonna ask anyways... How does Lolla as a festival "compare" to Coachella? I got myself a ticket this year, but all I really know is the line up and that its in Chicago.
For some reason, I imagine Lollapalooza to be like a cross between Coachella and Outside Lands.
Lollapalooza is horrible. That's regardless of whether it's compared to Coachella, although it comes off looking way worse when judged beside Coachella. It stunk everywhere last year; I tried getting in front of the sound board for the Cars and although there was plenty of space to do that, I immediately turned around and left because of how badly it smelled. Their setup is nice, with the couple of areas with 2 stages so that once a band finishes on one, a band on the other can start, but that's about the only positive takeaway I had from my experience.
Friends who went in previous years were similarly unimpressed. It's a city festival so people will go not because they care about the acts playing but because it's something to do. If you live there, sure, go if the lineup interests you, but if you'd have to travel, save your money for another fest.
EDIT: Just noticed you already have a ticket. If you have to travel, see if you can flip it on eBay. If you have a 3-day pass, you'll have no problem unloading it.
It rained last year, maybe that's why it smelled?
I went in 2010 and one day in 2009, saw some great bands, but I don't think I'll go back. It's just too crowded (though I've heard they've opened a few streets up to deal with the capacity) and at Coachella it's easier to move between stages and you can get a really good spot for a set and not have to show up 30 minutes or more before it starts.
Also, while it gets hot at Coachella (well, not this year) you don't sweat as much as when it gets hot in Chicago (let's hear it for humidity!).
One good thing about Lolla is that it is easy to get to - Grant Park is right there in the city, so you can just walk to the park (if you're staying downtown), take an El train, or park your car nearby.

We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.
This fest is for non-music lovers.
Got my plane ticket, hotel and 3 day pass... and my friend bailed on me!
The lineup is not that great but there's still a few bands that I want to see plus Jack White.
Should I go by myself? Is there any hot chick out there that would like to go with me?
Got single day tix for Fri and Sunday.... then off to Outside Land Fest the following week.
Summer Music Fest is on!

Not to mention, you have probably seen them at more exciting points in their careers. I mean, c'mon, are you really gearing up to see a set by Big Gigantic? Get real.
