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.

    hello, all.
    First of all, I am on miss Cecillia’s side for knowing what she likes, and her not caring what the rest of you think about her idol GaGa.
    Now, I have a query: what is it about someone being thrust into the spotlight that makes them any less creative, original or admirable?
    I appreciate musical and performance art, and though I do not plan to visit Chicago to go see Lalla, I am glad many people will find themselves entertained for several days.

    I don’t know why people are so shocked that Lady Gaga would be there…she was on the lineup two years ago. She actually writes her own music too, which is better than what a lot of acts these days can say for themselves…but regardless, I wish Tool was coming back.

    Don’t fret loyal Lollas. Last year the leaked bands weren’t half as good as the ones who made the final list. Just calm yourselves until the official list comes out. PS I know it’s painful for some of you to realize, but just as everything else in our world today, Lolla is a business. They have to get at least one big money monster or we can’t guarantee we’ll have the festival in years to come. So, while most of you are anti-Gaga, think of it logically… especially in this economy, if there isn’t one big pop star, the festival might not generate enough money to keep going. I mean, last year it was Kings of Leon, and they are TERRIBLE live! At least Gaga puts on an… interesting… performance =)

    I personally don’t care who the headliners are. I usually enjoy the smaller bands, less popular bands anyway. When Red Hot Chili Peppers headlined I got to enjoy a totally empty Blues Travler set and it was awesome! Not to say I didn’t enjoy Muse (even though the rain sucked), and Death Cab in past years. I just love the whole experience of checking out new bands. That’s the best part of any music festival! Hello, Polyphonic Spree at noon? I’ll take that any day!

    Anyway, I guess my point is: who really cares about the headliners (except for those who listen to the top 40)? Most of us festival-goers know its not about them anyway.

    just so you guys know…Lady Gaga went to Juliard. She is VERY musically talented and just because YOU think she isn’t good, doesn’t mean she isn’t. Music is subjective anyway so you are mostly a bunch of morons. Have nice lives though!
