The list says it all—Weezer, Death cab for Cutie, the Pixies, the Arcade Fire, Dinosaur Jr., the Kaiser Chiefs, Billy Idol, the Bravery, Liz Phair, the Walkman and many, many more. This alternative rock festival may be only for hard core music lovers, but it endeavours to bring together cultural and communal experiences from all over the country.
Chicago always tempts visitors during summer, and when you add food and music the combination is to great to say no to.
It is hard to make Lollapaloza fun and affordable due to that high ticket price, but options exist. Personally, I stay at Carlton Inn Midway hotel, tel. 773-582-0900, which is 15 min from the festival by "L" train, close to Midway Airport, has free parking and breakfast and internet.
Staying out of downtown saves me a fortune.
Spending days at the festival is great. So, is heading to the beach for a swim and to check out all the hard bodies.
Enjoy yourself, it is worth experiencing.
To be honest, the lineup was kind of weak...espeically for the ticket price! but to see Billy Idol was amazing. Weezer put on a hell of a show - their set was a blast! Other than that, you really have to know a lot of not-so-popular bands (and I knew pretty much all of the bands that were there), which isn't to say that they weren't good. But the weather wasn't really cooperating this year, as it was hot and sticky. other than that, it really just depends on who you bring with you, as with any event.
