Last time I was at this festival in 2008, I think "sold out" capacity was 75,000. Grant park was literally packed for both Radiohead and RATM. How did they expand the capacity to 100,000 now???
they expanded one city block west and created "chow town" on columbus
Lick an orange, it tastes like an orange. Lick a pineapple, it tastes like a pineapple. Go ahead, try it. Try some more. The strawberries taste like strawberries. The snozzberries taste like snozzberries! We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams. Come along, come along.
If Coachella got NIN, and the Cure I would've been much happier. Coachella has a fabulous undercard, but for the price we pay now (car camping prices sky rocketed, and they increased ticket prices by quite a bit), I expect a completely well rounded line up. The headliners at Lolla this year are sad. Blur, Stone Roses are not headliners. Phoenix headlined Lolla and did a great job, but they're not Coachella quality headliners. And RHCP has headlined every festival for the past 3 years and its getting old.
I would've been much happier if it was Blur, Stone Roses, NIN, and Cure at the top of the roster. Or at least Daft Punk in place of someone else. Meh, I get to see all of my friends and have a great time so its okay, but the headliners this year are a dissapointment. I'd probably be less dissapointed if I could afford both festivals but I cannot this year. I usually go to Lolla and Coachella. I actually find the crowd at Lolla to be quite a bit nicer than the Coach crowd.
Am I the only person who's tired of hearing people request that Daft Punk play everything?
Baseball cards trump pins, I've afraid to say.
Outside of Perry's the crowd at Lolla is fine.
It was my first lolla and I was used to the searches at Coachella and was shocked he could some how got that through. They were also transformers if I remember right which were all H based no fun no fun
thats pretty damn smart. Indio residents go dig some holes!
I would never want to belong to any club that would have someone like me for a member...
how is Lolla sold out? those tix are definitely going to crash. and people think the Coachella headliners are weak. wtf? mumford? the killers? the cure? with rare exception (would've liked NIN, the National and Theivery Corp), the lolla lineup is sub-par.
Eric Church and Mumford sold this thing out. Midwestern people like their country and folksy music quite a bit.
