Lollapalooza has posted the schedule for this year’s festival, which takes place August 6-8 in Chicago’s Grant Park. Whoever scheduled the three-day festival this year must really love seeing conflicted festival-goers, as there are several instances where at least two really awesome bands are playing at the same time.
On Friday night, one could either see the Strokes’ first U.S. show in four years, or come face-to-face with Lady Gaga’s live spectacle. Earlier that day, the indie crowd will probably be pulling their hair out over the Fuck Buttons-Matt and Kim-Dirty Projectors trifecta, who are all playing at 5pm on three different stages. The Playstation and Budweiser stages seem to throw people a bone on Saturday, offering conveniently alternating sets from heavyweights like Spoon, Grizzly Bear, Cut Copy, and Phoenix. The longer this schedule is looked at, the more mind-bending it becomes, so plan your routes now.
The entire schedule can be viewed over at the Lollapalooza website.
