Lollapalooza 2012 >> not surprisingly boasts another killer lineup for fans of all genres but more importantly music lovers in general. The music freaks of the industry now know who to look forward to in Chicago during the first weekend of August. Personally, I'm looking forward to Bloc Party the most since they are definitely one of my favourite bands of all time and I've only seen them once back in 2008. They have a new album dropping this year so there is a lot on the bloc to be excited for.
Some other notable dope bands and artists that will grace us at Grant Park: Red Hot Chili Peppers [bucket list band], The Black Keys [superb live], Jack White [the king], Childish Gambino [saw him last night], Neon Indian [seeing them tonight!] and Washed Out [shall not miss this time].
Then there's the tent. Last year, Perry's went off with an insane lineup of DJ's and electronic producers [Skrillex, Afrojack, Girl Talk, to name a few] and this year it might be even more off the hook with Kaskade, Nero, Justice, Bassnectar, Knife Party, Zeds Dead, SBTRKT and Calvin Harris [assuming they'd all be in the tent i/o of a main stage like Deadmau5 last year]. With this shit ton of ear candy on the bill I may as well be camping in the dance tent.
Check out the rest of the currently released lineup below. See you in the City of Wind!
