The 2014 Lollapalooza lineup was announced yesterday, and it seems to be garnering some mixed reactions. Headlining the fest are Outkast (duh), Eminem, Kings Of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, Skrillex, Calvin Harris, Lorde, The Avett Brothers and Foster The People. I can understand the disappointment. While it’s (of course) great to see Arctic Monkeys there, the rest of the list is pretty subpar.
From there, here are some artists listed that caught my eye: Interpol, Cut Copy, Portugal. The Man, Nas, Childish Gambino, Broken Bells, Spoon, Young The Giant, Lykke Li, Chance The Rapper, Phantogram, Grouplove, CHVRCHES, Chromeo, Darkside, The 1975, Jenny Lewis, Phosphorescent, The Temper Trap, Bombay Bicycle Club, White Denim, Typhoon, Warpaint, Kate Nash, Kodaline, Lucius, Blood Orange, Jagwar Ma, Parquet Courts, Temples, NoNoNo, Papa, The Districts, Ratking, The So So Glos,
While the headliners aren’t all that spectacular, the other acts playing the festival are solid. So basically the day section of Lollapalooza may be where the real action is.
