Lollapalooza schedule announced, Report

This year’s Lollapalooza festival takes place August 1-3 at Chicago’s Grant Park, with headliners OutKast, Arctic Monkeys, Eminem, Skrillex, Kings of Leon, and Calvin Harris. If you’re going, you’ve still got a few months to map out your itinerary. Today the fest has announced its full schedule. As usual, there are a few big names that overlap.

As usual eight stages will host more than 130 performers and pack in more than 10 hours of music daily. The festival is sold out, with 100,000 fans expected to attend each day. Here are some of the tougher overlaps each day for festivalgoers (the complete schedule can be found at lollapalooza.com):

Aug. 1: Lorde is destined to draw a huge crowd, which will make it tough to also see another Chicago rap star, Vic Mensa, and Broken Bells, which pairs the Shins’ James Mercer and Brian “Danger Mouse” Burton. Interpol’s comeback will joust with Dev Hynes’ soulful Blood Orange for attention in the late afternoon, and attitude-heavy Australian rapper Iggy Azalea goes up against hypnotic Los Angeles quartet Warpaint.

Aug. 2: If you’re a fan of dance-pop maven Calvin Harris, chances are the music of Cut Copy also will appeal, but you’ll be out of luck since both acts are on at the same time on the north end of Grant Park. It’s also extremely annoying that two promising newcomers – New Orleans singer-guitarist Benjamin Booker and U.K. band Jungle – are squaring off earlier in the day.

Aug. 3: Mystery act Kausea has a prime slot, right before the headliners. There’s a lot of on-line hub-bub about this act, which could mean it’s some kind of pseudonym for a well-known artist, a secretive side project – or nothing like that at all. DJ acts have typically played this slot and stage in years past, so the smart money is on some kind of electronic artist or collaboration. Kudos to the schedule-maker for booking Trombone Shorty and Run the Jewels – the collaboration between hip-hop maestros El-P and Killer Mike – back-to-back earlier in the day.
