Kanrocksas, or Lollapalooza? The Chicago festival’s lineup is announced
It looks like Kanrocksas did indeed score a few of Lolla’s headliners. The newly formed Kansas City, Kansas, festival snagged Eminem and Muse.
Other bands playing both festivals include A Perfect Circle, Kid Cudi, Flogging Molly, Arctic Monkeys and, well, every other band announced yesterday except the Flaming Lips (pretty sweet), the Black Keys (hell yeah), D12 (nothing wrong there) and Jack’s Mannequin (taking one for the collective festivalgoer team).
The Chicago, Illinois, festival will go down August 5-7 in Grant Park, and tickets are running $215. While Kanrocksas tickets are right on the Chicago festival’s heels at $179 (or $159, if you get them during the pre-sale), Lolla’s price tag doesn’t include camping or parking, which can’t be cheap in downtown Chicago. Here’s the rest of the lineup.
