Lollapalooza 2011 grabs Eminem, Foo Fighters, Coldplay

It could be because their lineup is the latest gift we’ve unwrapped, but Lollapalooza is looking like it might take the 2011 festival crown. I’m going to need a week or so to mull it over, but this looks fantastic. There’s so many acts I’ve never seen before (DFA1979, Ratatat, Lykke Li) and a lot of bands I’m not overly interested in, but would still like to see live (Deadmau5, Foo Fighters). Here’s a partial lineup for you to scan, then head to Lollapalooza’s site to see everything they’ve announced so far.

  1. Geez, surprised Coldplay is playin’, haven’t seen them around a US festival in a while. This line-up looks pretty good though (though I’d prob. pay that much just to see DFA1979, Portugal The Man, and Ratatat…silly me).

    All these festivals have got me thinkin’ bout the upcoming CMJ marathon! (And since I found out tickets are under $175, makes me even more pumped). Have you been/intend on going?
