The authenticity behind the picture is questionable, but the bands are predictable.
It still blows my mind how Lollapalooza sells out every year before the lineup is even announced. If I had bought a 3 day pass, I would have been pissed at this “leaked” lineup. If there is anything worth seeing to me, I’ll snag an overpriced day pass on one of the second hand ticket sites rather than drop $200 on a blind. Tickets aren’t on sale yet, but they will be soon so keep a sharp eye.
Reactions to the 2013 Lollapalooza lineup from around the web:
“This happens every year, and for the most part, it’s always bullshit.”- fakeshoredrive.com
“This lineup seems to be somewhat legitimate, always having a diverse lineup including rap, rock and roll, and electronic music. The leak is not too much of a surprise, just last year the lineup was (accurately) leaked about 4 months before the summer festival. There was also another leak around this same time last year, just 5 days off, that turned out to be mostly incorrect.” – cmoroney.wordpress.com
“We can neither confirm nor deny the rumored acts, but it should be a good time if a few of them take the stage in Grant Park throughout the weekend.” - brooklynvegan.com
