Rarely does middle America look as good to the rest of the country as it does when Lollapalooza happens. Suddenly music peeps from all over the country converge on Chicago for three days of music.
Acts rumored to be at this year's Lollapalooza include Arcade Fire, Dirty Projectors, the venerable Lady Gaga, Bright Eyes, Soundgarden, The Flaming Lips and MGMT.
Lollapalooza started using a new format in 2005, as a two-day concert set to take place in Chicago. The festival grounds were located in Grant Park, which is inside the downtown area of the city. Festival organizers promised the city skyline of the city as a backdrop for the show, so it's about as downtown as downtown can get.
So here's the story for 2010 - one show, for three days, with lots of after-show events happening around the city. About 70 bands will perform on five stages.
Festival organizers gave up on the notion of Lollapalooza as a traveling festival after 2004's meltdown, causing the cancellation of the tour. It seems that the cost of the festival in past years had grown so large that there wasn't enough money left over after the bills were paid to satisfy Lollapalooza investors.
Lollapalooza happens on August 6th - 8th in Grant Park in Chicago. Check out the Spacelab Festival Guide for more information on Lollapalooza.
