Lollapalooza Is Coming!

Lollapalooza lineup will be announced tomorrow, Thursday the 16th of March! The Chicago music festival although was said to be mediocre last year, made a mammoth profit. If you're the head of a music festival, and you have lots of money, what would you do with the cash? How about get amazing acts. The New Pornographers, Iron & Wine, Sonic Youth, Thievery Corporation, and Blackalicious are confirmed acts from non-festival sources.The Red Hot Chili Peppers are also already confiremed from a non-festival source to headline multiple nights. Go ahead and take a pee before you read the rumored acts, because you'll surely pee your pants. The rumored acts are the following:

The Smashing Pumpkins
David Bowie
Wilco
The Dave Matthews Band
Uncle Tupelo
Pearl Jam
My Bloody Valentine
Sigur Ros
The Flaming Lips
Modest Mouse
Mogwai
Explosions In The Sky
The Strokes
Tool
Morrisey
Radiohead
Hole
Sleater-Kinney
RJD2
The Crystal Method
The White Stripes
Wolf Parade
Andrew Bird
Nada Surf
Sage Francis
Blue Merle
DJ Peretz
and.....
The frickin Arcade Fire

I said goddamn. I mean sure Coachella was supposed to have some of these artists, but it makes more sense for some of the bands to play Chicago instead. Smashing Pumpkins are from Chicago. Wilco are from Chicago. Radiohead was rumored to be roaming around Chicago at this time. Tickets go on sale tomorrow as well. Let's keep our fingers crossed for this lineup (add more hip-hop. Common, Lupe, Kanye). Put the Pitchfork Music Festival on top of this and Chicago will be the happiest place on earth.
