Hey, Pitchfork: you’re on notice.
With high profile summer festivals constantly trying to find new and interesting ways to reveal their lineups, Lollapalooza figured out a way to do it that will have the whole internet talking. (Well, maybe not the whole internet. Maybe just the portion of it that has been trying to figure out the lineup since the day the 2009 festival ended.)
The people behind the festival have released a fill in the blank style lineup, with all of the “O”s filled in. The headliners are all pretty obvious if you’ve been following the leaks and rumors: Soundgarden, Green Day, Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire, The Strokes, and Phoenix all fit pretty nicely on that top line.
I’ve been working on slotting names in the blanks while on a (long, tedious) conference call, but I realized that, well, I don’t really know that many bands. Oops.
Check out the slightly cryptic lineup on Lollapalooza’s website and see if you can figure out some more acts. It’s kind of addicting, actually.
The festival is set for August 6th through the 8th, and tickets are currently on sale, with three-day passes starting at $190.
