They had like 3 bands last year that I wanted to see.. all on different days.. Not worth the price of admission.. Those 3 that you listed are not impressive IMO.

The number of letters in the first band could add up to Soundgarden.
Hope they come over to Europe soon!

Other rumored headliners are Arcade Fire and The Strokes. Phoenix looks like it may be the 6th headliner. And the one on the third row could very well be Spoon.

Muse on line 2, perhaps? (though they don't really sound like a line 2 band)

Last band on the bottom right = The Mars Volta? again, low for them too, but who knows?

i guess Green Day could also be Pearl Jam, though GD's touring at the time and PJ's tour would be over...

I got in on the $60 deal so just seeing Green Day & Soundgarden gets me my money's worth.

Top row is easily:
Soundgarden - Green Day - Lady Gaga - Arcade Fire - The Strokes - Phoenix

Hot Chip is in the second row

...and 2009

I'mma say Wilco, fourth row from the bottom. I'd like to buy a vowel, Pat. An "I"?

I always did enjoy word problems!

3rd band line 3 = Devo?
3rd band line 4 = Gogol Bordello (must be!)
3rd band line 6 = The XX?

MGMT is a given because of the new album coming out. I thought since Green Day is one of the givens that AFI would play since their going to tour with them, but none of the clues point to it.

They've added the "I"s -- at a quick glance, I didn't see anything inconsistent with the spoiler Metrodub posted.

Odd, for such a big festival there isn't a single band I have interest in seeing. Saw Soundgraden once back during the '96 incarnation, so I'm good on that.

Re: Lollapalooza 2010: August 6-8 - Grant Park; Chicago, IL

This is nearly upon us.

Really, my only interest in going was to see Soundgarden...but my disdain for dealing with a festival like this prevailed, and I didn't bother to get tickets. Began to regret it as the event drew closer.

Earlier this week, Soundgarden announced a ticket lottery for a pre-show August 5th at the Vic Theatre. Somehow, I managed to get selected to purchase tickets! So, I'll be seeing them after all...just not at Lolla.

My daughter got tickets and is excited about seeing X-Japan, apparently they are reuniting after 13 or 14 years, similar to Soundgarden.

I agree, hell of a lineup. I'd love to see Arcade Fire, Spoon, The National, New Pornographers, and more
