Damn... Radio, Rage, Kanye, NIN and Raconteurs would be enough to get me to do a road trip down to Chicago...but I've already got tickets to see Jack Johnson on August 3rd, so I guess I'm missing out! Dang!

Other than Radiohead, none of the big names do anything for me. However, there are some killer smaller bands I'd have a good time checking out. I take it this is only Chicago again, yeah? (dammit)

edit... yeah, only Chicago. I hate that. Really. I get that Perry needs to make money and it's working in Chicago, but I'd love to spend a weekend seeing the festival in Atlanta. Especially since Music Midtown went away.

Holy shit, I had no intentions of ever going to another Lolla, but honestly, I am blown away by how amazing this line-up is.

Wilco
Radiohead
Black Keys
The National

Right there, probably 4 of my 5 favorite bands.

Then throw in. . .

The Raconteurs
Broken Social Scene
Flogging Molly
Okkervil River
The Weakerthans
Brand New (Who are phenomenal live!)
Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks
Mates of State
The Kills (F'n love them, never seen them live before)

Can't wait.

Amadou & Mariam's appearance may have sold me the ticket. They are simply a band I NEED to see live.

Need.

If you go to this concert and dont see Gogol Bordello you are wasting your money. I can almost gurantee they will put on the best show out of all those bands. Love to see Radiohead and Rage and many more of the others, but i live no where near Chicago

How come Houston never gets good concerts?! It seems all the good bands skip this city, and if they do come they don't come back for years.

Cause it's Houston?

If you want to see good live music, I think you have to move to Austin.

Houston gets pretty much every tour that goes on the road. How long have you lived here?

Aside from NIN there really isn't anyone I'm dying to see. And the inclusion of Kanye is enough to keep me far, far away.

After the shit he pulled at Bonnaroo, it'll be interesting to see if he tries to fuck up Lollapalooza as well.

On the third day of Bonnaroo, "Fuck Kanye" chants were common before shows, many people were sporting homemade "Fuck Kanye" t-shirts, a row of porta potties sported enormous "Fuck Kanye" graffiti from top to bottom, and a number of artists commented on his ridiculous behavior from the stage. Robert Randolph went so far as to lead a crowd of thousands in a "Kanye Sucks" chant.
