With Bonnaroo out of the way, the next major festival on the agenda is none other than Mr. Farrell’s Lollapalooza. Today, the Chicago based festival, which is scheduled to take place between August 7th and 9th in Grant Park, made sure you knew that with the release of its 2009 schedule.
So, what’s it looks like? Well, there sure are a lot of conflicts: Kings of Leon vs. Depeche Mode (ouch!). The Decemberists vs. Peter Bjorn & John (double ouch!) In the battle of the douchebags, Asher Roth vs. Crystal Castles (triple ouch!). And. that’s just Friday.
Saturday sees Tool vs. Beastie Boys, with the latter featuring TV on the Radio, Arctic Monkeys, Los Campesinos! and Delta Spirit as lead-ins (groovy!). Sunday has, as expected, Lou Reed into Jane’s Addiction and Snoop into The Killers (LOL).
