    or they might play North Coast Music Festival, which would actually make sense as they've been pulling big names for the last couple years now.

    Maybe it's just something simple like, say, Osheaga offering them more money?

    Tons of the predictions on the Lolla board include Pearl Jam as the #1 headliner. They last headlined Lolla in '07, which was a fantastic show. Does anybody have an insight on why so many folks think this will happen?

    I'm planning on driving Dallas-St. Louis-Chicago for Lolla anyhow, but Pearl Jam as a #1 would make it extra crispy for me.

    While hunting Hotwire for a hotel near Grant Park for Lollapalooza (7/31/14-8/3/14), I happened upon a 4* for $174 in Millenium Park-Grant Park, and decided to take the plunge.

    The amenities are:
    Free Internet
    Indoor Pool
    Fitness Center
    Pool (yes, repeated)
    Restaurant(s)
    Business Center
    Self service laundry
    Tennis Nearby

    The win was the Swissotel Chicago, which features King and two Double rooms, and it's about a mile or less from the Lollapalooza gates at Grant Park. For those who don't use Hotwire, generally you can call the hotel and request the type of beds you prefer after the room is purchased. Not always, but nearly always in my experience, this isn't an issue.

    So, if you're headed out to the Lollapalooza festival - this is a great deal $35 less/night than the discount on the Lollapalooza website. For those who have never attended the festival, finding a nice hotel under $200 within 1.5 miles of Grant Park is a nice situation. The walk back after the show ends is kind of epic, tens of thousands of drunk Midwesterners roaming the streets of Chicago. It's one of my favorite memories of my Lolla trips.

    You wont be disappointed with Lolla/Chicago........... Way better food and different vibe/atmosphere. The Line-Up alone should clarify the greatness of Chicago!

    Way better than what?

    Lolla is full of drunks who buy tickets blind not because they have confidence in the lineup but because "it's lolla bro" and they don't give a fuck who plays. There's no shade anywhere and the music ends at ten, just as the temperature gets manageable.

    That said, the lineup is generally good for the price, and the after shows are good if you can get tickets.

    They actually release the lineup before tickets go on sale. But even so, it has a gigantic demographic of 21 year olds and under. Fortunately, most of them pretty much spend all they're time at Perrys stage(the edm stage). So you can find a little bit of refuge from them.

    They basically all come down to grantpark from the suburbs to get wasted. EDM has pretty helped every festival turn douchey. Its basically bridged the gap between the hardcore music fan and the casual fan. Now we all get to hangout all weekend...fuck ya!

    I don't get this comment. There are a ton of trees in Grant Park, and generally several sponsored tents. The festival footprint is huge. Are you sure you've been to Lollapalooza? Few trees at ACL and Coachella, sure... and Grant Park doesn't have as many trees as Golden Gate Park, but it's got plenty for the number of people that want to sit in the shade.

    If your major concern with a festival is manageable heat and number of trees... maybe Coachella isn't for you? LOL.

    I was thinking more along the lines stages in tents, you've probably noticed Coachella has a few of those. Maybe I just have a bizarre personal preference, but I tend to enjoy watching at least a few shows from under the shade, especially the smaller artists who tend to play in the hottest part of the day.


    Edit: To be fair, I misread that dude's post. I thought he said "way better food, vibe, atmosphere" when the "way better" was just wrt the food. I like Lolla just fine, but doing it in Grant Park has serious drawbacks for me.

    fuck...i'm at Lolla this year. especially if they get something similar to that + Timberlake.

    11/21 - Pearl Jam - Viejas Arena

    So who are the other 2 ''headliners'' if you put Timberlake, Outkast, Jack White (again) and Arctic Monkeys up top? Unless Nick Cave gets prime billing, but more likely Lou Reed a few years ago. Coldplay would be likely.

    Jack White isn't coming back. I expect Pearl Jam to be the #1 overall headliner.

    Also not sold on JT since Yeezus is playing Fuji Rock and Lolla usually shares a headliner with that fest.

    JT, Kanye and Outkast would be a lot of hip hop and pop for Lolla. I could see Lolla getting two out of three, but that's it. As for Pearl Jam a reliable source on the Lolla board who posted about their Wrigley show last summer far in advance said that were in talks to end their summer tour at Lolla.

    that means it's not the whole list for the guessing game or whatever.

    i guess david byrne is wrong.

    Adam Jones said today that it's finished and coming out later this year. I'm skeptical, but it is recent news.

    The crowd size for Lolla Nick Cave will sadly be similar to the modest crowd size he got at Coachella.
