"The groups that I think are amazing right now happen to be at Lollapalooza this year," laughs Perry Farrell with a big smile. "I keep pumping Lollapalooza because I'm excited!"
Perry has every reason to be thrilled. This year's installment of the festival has an epic lineup including Tool, Kings of Leon, The Killers, Jane's Addiction, Ben Harper, Lou Reed, Depeche Mode and many more. It goes down in Chicago's Grant park once more from August 7th until August 9th.
For this exclusive ARTISTdirect.com feature, Perry shared his iTunes playlist. Check it out below and don't miss Lollapalooza 2009!
Perry Farrell's Playlist:
I've never seen Gomez. For many years, I wanted to have Gomez perform at Lollapalooza and it never quite worked out. I'm excited about them.
2. Artic Monkeys
They're playing Lollapalooza for the first time, and I'm excited to see them. They're a super-cred band.
She has a voice that I particularly love.
4. Animal Collective
They're a group that, over the past year, has been the music blogs' darling. I really love what they do. They have these great harmonies that they play with electronics live. They're super interesting. Their videos are really fun.
5. Fleet Foxes
I'm really looking forward to seeing them for the first time.
In the dance area, I'm excited about playing on a bill with MSTRKRFT and Simian Mobile Disco.
7. Simian Mobile Disco
I've tried to get a track going with Deadmau5 over the past few years and I was never able to. I have been recording with Kaskade though.
Europe is a couple years ahead of us as far as dance music goes. In fact, MTV plays dance music videos all night every weekend. I was able to see people I've never seen before while I was over there. I'm looking forward to seeing Hercules and Love Affair. This man has a very interesting voice.
There you go. That's a pretty good list of people that I've been listening to and I'm looking forward to seeing.
