Lollapalooza line-up announced; Wye Oak, J. Roddy Walston, Eminem to perform
The Lollapalooza Music Festival in Chicago announced its full line-up today. Baltimore's J. Roddy Walston and the Business and Wye Oak are among the bands that will perform. Wye Oak's last local show was just a couple of weekends ago; a story on that show and "Civilian" is here.
Other headliners at the festival have performed in the Baltimore region recently, or will in the near future. Among the bands that have been here in the past couple of months are The Mountain Goats, Titus Andronicus, and Girl Talk. You might have read about the Joy Formidable in our Coachella post-mortem. Also in the line-up is Sleigh Bells, which plays the 9:30 club May 7 and the Naked and the Famous, which will perform at the Ottobar that same day.
The main headliners at the three-day, now 20-year-old festival are Eminem, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Deadmau5, and others. Lollapalooza begins August 5 at Chicago's Grant Park. Tickets are on sale now at its website.
