Kanye, Radiohead, Rage, NIN, Wilco at Lollapalooza
The full Lollapalooza 2008 lineup will be announced on Monday, but this is a great start to the festival's buzz.
The organizers of Lollapalooza have stacked the deck this year with a slate of headliners that is one of the strongest since the former touring fest put down roots in Chicago in 2005. In addition to hometown legends Wilco and Kanye West, the main stages will be headlined by Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against the Machine and the Raconteurs, according to a report in the Chicago Sun-Times.
A full list of the more than 120 acts will be announced on Monday, but the Times reported that among the other bands on the bill for the August 1-3 event are: Gnarls Barkley, Bloc Party, Cat Power, Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks, Kid Sister, Girl Talk, Mates of State, G. Love and Special Sauce, the Black Keys, Broken Social Scene, Kid Sister, the Cool Kids, Blues Traveler, Jamie Lidell, Battles, Office, Grizzly Bear and Go! Team.
