Music News: Lollapalooza 2010 (Potential) Line-up

31 Mar

Since this is a music blog, and this is music news (and because I’m going to Lollapalooza and therefore have a vested interest here) just thought I’d share that Lollapalooza has released their lineup…sorta:

People on the Lollapalooza message board have theorized the following potential bands:

THESE ARE GUESSES. BANDS IN BOLD HAVE A HIGHER LIKELIHOOD, either because they have more O’s, or because they were already rumored.

7. _ _ _  *  _ O _ _ _ _ _ _ _ * O _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ * _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ O _ _

Personally?  I’m REALLY looking forward to:
Green Day, Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire, The Strokes, Phoenix, Hot Chip, The National, Spoon, Cut Copy, The New Pornographers, Yeasayer, AFI, The XX, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, Frightened Rabbit, Mumford & Sons, The Dodos, Hockey

So, having spent $190 per ticket (Travis and I are going) I think I end up getting a pretty good deal at $10.50 per band as it stands.

I’ll probably update the line-up tomorrow depending on whether or not it seems likely that they have given us another letter to work with, or if they’ve pulled an April Fools prank.
