Today was the day. I was nervous with anticipation as I opened my email this morning stating, "2009 Lollapalooza Lineup is Here". After missing out last year I was hoping for a list of bands that would quickly remove my guilt about not participating in one of my favorite Chicago events. I will admit that a few of my favorites from the past couple of years were not included, but in their place I have compiled a list of new bands that will be sure to make up for the loss.
If you're roaming around Grant Park that weekend I would definitely make time to check out the following...
Band of Horses
Coheed and Cambria
Ra Ra Riot
Kings of Leon
A few favorites that will be returning...
TV on the Radio
Cold War Kids
Peter Bjorn and John
I could have posted the entire list on this page, but don't be lazy! Head over to www.lollapalooza.com to check out the official lineup for this summer's 3-day festival. They have included profiles for each band/artist so you can listen to songs, read about their rise to fame, and start planning your dream schedule. Get to work!
