I went to the first Lollapalooza so man, I feel old! Lollapalooza turns 20 in 2011 and the 2011 lineup is certainly one of best in the fest's two-decade history, so Lolla is celebrating in style.
Eminem, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Muse, My Morning Jacket and Deadmau5 are on tap to headline the festival. A Perfect Circle, Cee Lo Green, Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley and Nas, The Cars and Ween are also on the bill! Eclectic! Diverse! Not to be missed! That's Lollapalooza 2011.
If that wasn't an impressive lineup to begin with, Bright Eyes, Arctic Monkeys, Big Audio Dynamite, Deftones, Explosions in the Sky, Crystal Castles, Lykke Li, Foster the People, Two Door Cinema Club, Best Coast and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals are also on the bill. Lollapalooza co-founder Perry Farrell will once again curate a dance and electronic music tent, which will feature performances from Girl Talk, Kid Cudi, Skrillex, Afrojack and more.
Lolla 2011 will boast 130 bands. While it was once a traveling festival, it's now staying put and taking place over the weekend of August 5th through 7th at Chicago's Grant Park.
