So here's the story for the 2011 Lollapalooza - one show, for three days, with lots of after-show events happening around the city. About 70 bands will perform on five stages. It will be the 20th anniversary, so we're expecting big things.

 

Lollapalooza started using a new format in 2005, as a two-day concert set to take place in Chicago. The festival grounds are located in Grant Park, which is inside the downtown area of the city. Lollapalooza 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.

 

Lollapalooza organizers gave up on the notion of 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.

 

The 2011 Lollapalooza schedule has been unveiled at the Lollapalooza web site, complete with a custom schedule app that lets you plan out a custom line up, then blast it out via Twitter or Facebook.
