Lollapalooza 2011 Lineup: Who Will Headline?
Perry Farrell: Dance Act to Headline Lollapalooza 2011
The official Lollapalooza lineup won't be announced until April 26, but info is already trickling out. Jane's Addiction frontman and Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell said that a dance act will be one of the Lollapalooza 2011 headliners. Which electronic outfits are big enough for a festival of this size? Relix is thinking Deadmau5. Daft Punk would be a good guess, as would Air.
The Lollapalooza message boards have several "semi-confirmed" acts, such as:
- Lykke Li (her star is on the rise, for sure)
- Crystal Castles
- !!! (Just say "Chk Chk Chk")
- Girl Talk (a perennial crowd-pleaser)
- Tennis (theirs was a hotly-anticipated debut album)
- Arctic Monkeys
- Foo Fighters
Cee Lo Green and Primus are also on the radar: Primus first played Lollapalooza in 1993, and appeared again in 2005. Cee Lo played as part of Gnarls Barkley in 2006 and 2008.
Speculation is rife, between who should play Lollapalooza and whose schedule actually allows it. What's your ideal Lollapalooza 2011 lineup?
