Lollapalooza 2008 | Wilco and Rage to Fill Out Lineup?

Balloon

Looks like we’ve got more lineup rumors for Lollapalooza 2008.

This time Mr. DeRogatis is alluding to the possibility of Wilco and Rage Against the Machine as additional headliners for the Chicago festival. Those are ‘additional’ headliners tacked onto the possible behemoths of Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails that have already been rumored. Wowza!?!

If that’s the case, Lolla 2008 could be some serious shit.

4/4/08 update: These and other headliners have now been pretty much confirmed.

    I’d say that Wilco would be a solid pick here, but if you add Rage Against the Machine to this lineup, I’d worry about the nature of the crowd in the heart of Grant Park. Even more worrisome — who would go onstage *opposite* Rage? Radiohead?

    Actually…that would make sense. Rage fans on one end of the park, Radiohead fans on the other.

    This brings up a good question for Chicago fans — who’s rumor’s are more trustworthy? Kots or DeRo’s? I saw both of them here in SXSW last night. I should ask them.

    I think a lot of peeps would be pissed for the Rage vs. Radiohead match-up. I personally would want to see both!

    last year the modest mouse/my morning jacket thing was a bit of a piss off… actually having like 5 or 6 of the main bands i wanted to see all landing in a couple hours was kind of scary…… but Radiohead/Rage would take the cake… i’d say the majority would want to see both and would be amazed at the lineup and then pissed at the schedule 1000 times more than last year

    plus if you look back to some lala history they counter the sounds so if you have radiohead play saturday night at at&t; stage you would probebly get a Roots or Jay Z or some hip hop name to play bud lite stage
