Lollapalooza 2010 Lineup Rumors and Leaks

lolla2010

(4/6/10 update: the Lollapalooza 2010 lineup has been officially announced)

The lineup for Lollapalooza 2010 appears to be leaking like a sieve. Citing “multiple industry sources,” the Daily Swarm claims that Lolla headliners include Lady Gaga, Green Day and a reunited Soundgarden. The Chicago Tribune’s Greg Kot is reporting that Lolla organizers are also in negotiations with Arcade Fire and The Strokes as possible headliners. Kot also mentioned a number of other bands confirmed for Lolla 2010, including: Cut Copy, Dirty Projectors, Hot Chip, Yeasayer, and The xx.

The full lineup announcement isn’t supposed to be due until some time in April, but it looks like Perry Ferrell and C3 Presents may have a tough time keeping it under wraps. All the more fun for all of us though, right?

Lollapalooza 2010 is slated for August 6-8 in Chicago’s Grant Park. Check out Lollapalooza.com for more info.

    OMG WAT R U GUYS TALKING ABOUT?!!? LADY GAGA IS SO AMAZING..SHES KINDA WIERD BUT THERES NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT,,SHES UNIQUE IN HER OWN WAYS AND I LOVE HER TO DEATH!!! U GUYS SHOULD BE GRATEFUL THAT SHES COMING BECUZ MOST OF THE PEOPLE ACTUALLY GOIN 2 PALOOZA ARE ONLY GOIN 4 GAGA..I KNO THATS THE ONLY REASON IM GOIN AND EVERYONE CAN KNO THAT IM GOIN 2 BE THE GIRL IN THE FRONT WIT A HUGE SIGN SAYING I LOVE U AND IM HER #1 FAN..U GUYS ARE JUST HATING ON HER BECAUSE U WILL NEVER BE WHERE SHE IS!

    • Emily

      Um, no we’re not. We’re hating on her… because of exactly what you’re saying. Everyone’s going to be there to see her, because that everyone that you’re talking about.. are not Lolla fans, they’re Gaga fans. Do you understand why that is the problem. This badass musicfest we all look forward to every year will be jam packed with a bunch of people who paid the big price to see one person that… if you think about the way popstars work, won’t be remembered and if they are, its in the inquirer about their scandals. true lolla musicians are epic, and are remembered b/c of their music.. not by their extreme choices.

      • Emily

        Also, I don’t want to be where she is… and I’m sure I can speak for most of the other people on this blog when saying that. A bunch of people listening to my music that will be on the newest trend next year and constantly having to go to the extremes to be remembered. As a musician, I’d rather be more the opposite being remembered b/c I played quality music about something other than romance and fame.. i don’t know there’s more important things to write a song about. You like her songs, b/c it’s marketing.. it’s all marketing. Wake up!

        • J-fag

          Lady Gaga blows giant monkey balls… we might get lucky… she might die in a horribly awsome plane crash before lolla…

            if you guys had any clue, you would realize that if you dont like lady gaga and she is playing lolla, that is awesome because you will probably like the badass band playing opposite himher and you will get much closer to the stage because half the audience will be idiots that do like himher. chin up :)

      • Drew

        Emily, what do you think the music you listen to is? It’s all marketing. If you like a certain style, it’s because of marketing period. When you look into the sociological aspects within it, the reason you like the “cool” bands that you do, which I’m sure I like too, the reasons are the same as to why people like Gaga. I don’t listen to her, but legitimately it will bring a huge crowd. Go to Pitchfork if you want a bunch of indie bands, but don’t complain about Lollapalooza picking mainstream artists when in fact….Lolla is a mainstream festival.

      This post is also unacceptable. Cecilia, if you don’t start writing like an adult i will have to give you a failing grade for the semester. If you fail Blog Posting this semester you will not have the necessary credits to graduate the internet next spring. Furthermore, since midterms are coming up and you have yet to post a satisfactory comment, I will have to send a note home to your parents.

      Redlines:

      (1)Oh, my God! What are you talking about?(2. It is my opinion that) Lady Gaga is so amazing. She is kind of weird but (3. I believe) there is nothing wrong with that. She is unique in her own way and I love her to death! You should be grateful that she is coming. (4) I have heard that most of the people attending Lollapalooza this year are only doing so to see Lady Gaga perform and, in fact, that is the only reason I am going! You might like to know that I plan on being in the front row with a large sign that will read: “I love you! I am your number one fan!” You all write disparaging remarks on this comment page only because you are jealous of Lady Gaga’s fame (5). (6)

      1. Use full words
      2. There is no proof that Lady Gaga is amazing. Qualify your opinions.
      3. It is true she is weird. It is your opinion that that is an acceptable trait.
      4. Unless you have and can site a ticket sales survey, this is opinion or hearsay. Because does not have a ‘z’.
      5. Never assume what your audience thinks.
      6. General remark: you seem to be doubling up a lot of your punctuation. It is correct grammar to use one comma and a space or one period and two spaces.

    Geez guys, relax on the Gaga. It’s Lolla for goodness sakes. If you don’t want to see a band play you just go to one of the other stages. Don’t let one act (who played Lolla in 07′) make you not go to a great festival. I mean, it’s freakIng Lolla overlooking the beautiful city of Chicago. Just enjoy it.

    I’ve been to Lolla for years, and I always remember feeling excited about at least ONE of the headliners each evening….Radiohead, Muse, NIN, Daft Punk….I would pay the $90 just to see THAT one act. But the rumored acts this year are bands that make me switch the radio station if I happen to be listening to commercial radio instead of a kick-ass college station with good independent label alternative stuff. Anyway, there are some good smaller bands going, but the BIG one at night is like the orgasm of the day! I’m pretty disappointed with the rumors…..

    • Lola

      OK, Arcade Fire and the Strokes would be sweet….

    If the circulating rumors are true, Lolla again is lacking in representation from newer harder rock/pop acts. Nothing wrong with all the quasi-indy Pitchfork blather, nor Gaga/Green day commerciality, but some of us still like to get a bit blasted away. Why not try a Sevendust or Mudvayne for vet rock or Cage 9, Adelita’s Way type stuff for newer stuff. Faith No More would be cool, and Soungarden should be interesting in a historically perspective way, but we need a trio like the Coheed, Rise Against, Tool portion of 2009 Lolla.

    YAH WELL GAGA IS MY GIRL && NO MATTER WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY ABOUT HER ILL ALWAYS BE ON HER SIDE..&& YAH I LIKE MUSE AND ALL THAT BUT I WOULD STILL PREFER GAGA OVER ANY ARTIST OR MUSICIAN OR BAND PLAYING..AND SOME OF THE REASON SHE IS THE WAY SHE IS,,IS BECUZ OF IGNORANT PEOPLE WHO LIKE TO START SAYING STUFF ABOUT HER.. THAT JUST PROVES THAT EVEN IF YOU STILL DNT LIKE GAGA SHES STILL ALWAYS ON UR MIND BECUZ U FIND TIME TO TALK ABOUT HER AND SAY ALL THE CRAP U GUYS SAY…**GAGA ALL THE WAY**

      to the left of your “A” key is a button called “Caps Lock”. try pressing that again before you post next time. In addition to that bit of advice, I have rewritten your post in English (translated from whatever red-bull-induced, fan-girl delirium, language you have created). Below is what i believe you meant to say.

      “Yes, well… Lady Gaga is my girl and (use the word and in this case) no matter what people have to say about her, I will always be on her side (also only one period necessary). (ampersands are completely inappropriate here) I like Muse and similar bands, however I would still prefer Lady Gaga over any other artist (musician and band are, in this case, synonyms and adding them in the sentence is redundant. ‘playing’ is also unnecessary). Some of the reasons she is the way she is is because (no ‘z’ in because) of ignorant people who like saying stuff about her. That just proves the theory that despite your negative opinions of Lady Gaga, you still find her interesting enough to talk about.* I favor Lady Gaga.

      *while this sentence is correct in its grammar it is incorrect in its
      logic.

      This post gets an F. Please see me after class.

    I love how when you type in Lady Gaga into google the first suggestion it gives you is hermaphrodite… just thought I’d point that out

    Soundgarden would be a treat. I have heard rumors that they were having a reunion. The line up isn’t the best to travel up for, I’m sure they will do a full tour if they rejoin together. I just can’t understand why they would have Lady Gaga on the lineup, but then again they had Linking Park last year. So you never know.
