Lollapalooza 2010 Lineup Revealed, Festival Parties Like It’s 1992

7

The organizers at Lollapalooza have kindly filled in the rest of the letters for the music loving public, and the bands revealed show the festival skewing a little old and to the mainstream this year. The first headliner listed is the reformed Soundgarden, who first played the festival 1992. Joining them from the same year will be Cypress Hill, who is the first hip-hop act listed. The other headliners are Green Day, Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire, the Strokes, and Phoenix. None of these acts are particularly onerous, but the combination doesn’t generate a tremendous amount of excitement.

 

It’s possible that there are millions clambering to see a Soundgarden reunion, but the band always was just the third or fourth best outfit from the Seattle scene. Combined with the lack of diversity at the top of the bill, which is only added by Cypress Hill, Jimmy Cliff, and Erykah Badu, the concert becomes less a celebration of a wide range of music and more, in the words of DeRogatis, “Chicago’s musical Wal-Mart on the lake.” The full listing of bands is available here. Feel free to give your opinion of the line-up and possibly add who might have livened it up a bit.
