  Lollapalooza 2005


July 23rd – 24th
Chicago, Illinois


The bands have been announced, and the Lollapalooza lineup is set to be a good one with names like the Pixies, the Arcade Fire, M83, Death Cab For Cutie and the reformed Dinosaur Jr.. Even Anton Newcombe's Brian Jonestown Massacre is on the bill alongside cohorts the Dandy Warhols.

Lollapalooza is using a new format, as a two-day
concert set to take place in Chicago on July 23 and 24. The festival grounds will be located in Grant Park, which is inside the downtown area of the city. Festival organizers are promising 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 2005 - one show, for two days, with lots of after-show events happening around the city. 70 bands will perform on five stages, with the concert itself taking place at Grant Park.

Lollapalooza organizers (which, by most accounts, still include Perry Farrell) have given up on the notion of a traveling festival after last years 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.

Starting on Tuesday, April 7, two-day passes will be sold for only $35, though they will be available for just a week, or until supplies run out. More information is promised to be revealed on the site in the coming weeks.
