Lollapalooza Headliners Announced, Awesomeness Abounds

By Tankboy in Arts & Entertainment on Apr 4, 2008 3:40PM

2008_04_lolla_logo.gifDeRo has the lowdown on a bunch of other confirmed Lollapalooza acts. We already knew Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, and Rage Against The machine would be headlining, but now you can add Racontuers, Kanye West, and Wilco to that list. We'd bitch about the fact that three of the six headliners have already played Lolla, which in its current incarnation is still a neophyte, but fuck it, we love all the headliners so we'll keep our trap shut.

Local cool kids OFFICE will also be making a return appearance, although this time around they probably won't be performing at 11 a.m. Other acts announced that were excited about are: Gnarls Barkley, the Black Keys, Broken Social Scene, Mates of State, Stephen Malkmus (fuck yeah!), Girl Talk (double fuck yeah!), Kid Sister, Cool Kids, and Battles. Other newly announced acts we're less excited about are after the jump. Getcher tickets now before they make another jump upwards in price.

UPDATE: It should be noted that the Lolla folks are not saying these acts are confirmed, but we're hoping DeRo's source is on the ball!

These aren't all bad, but we'll probably skip 'em: G. Love & Special Sauce, Blues Traveler, Bloc Party, Cat Power, Go! Team, Jamie Lidell and Grizzly Bear.
