It’s that time of year again, music snobs! With the official Lollapalooza lineup announcement just around the corner, several seemingly credible leaks have popped up over the past few weeks. The latest, a snapped shot of an alleged upcoming magazine advertisement, has been confirmed by many to be the official list. Check it out:
Well, this lineup certainly has something for everyone! What do you think? The Killers, Vampire Weekend (pictured), Lana Del Rey, The Cure, Nine Inch Nails, and Ellie Goulding are just a few names to pop up on the roster. By the way, it pains me to write this post. I don’t want to read this list to myself. I don’t want to share this with all of you. I need to get my ass to Chicago! I’ll just leave this draft open on my laptop. If my dog decides to press “publish,” consider yourselves lucky.
Seriously, if you ever get the opportunity to experience Lollapalooza, go. It’s an incredible experience. I had the pleasure of hitting up last year’s festival, and it really is something to be seen and heard, especially if it rains. By the way American Idol fans, Haley Reinhart’s live set was incredible, and she’s impossibly cool in person.
For those of you having trouble scanning the image, Entertainment Weekly has a full written list of acts.
Anyone out there making the trip to Chicago for Lolla 2013? Is the Astro listed in the photo an obscure band or The X Factor‘s rapping boy wonder? Are you impressed with this rumored list?
