Lollapalooza 2011 Friday Lineup Mixtape

I got my 3-day bracelet in the mail today, so I suppose it’s about time to start looking more closely at the lineup for the annual trip to Lollapalooza.  Hopefully by now you’ve secured tickets because by now they are sold out – all 270,000 of them!  So if you’re a procrastinator like me, now is the time to hop on Craigslist and eBay and hope for a rare deal, because this is looking like a solid festival.

By now you’ve likely heard all about the acts heading the bill for this year, the 20th anniversary of the festival.  Coldplay, Eminem, Muse, The Foo Fighters, and My Morning Jacket are all well established acts with loyal followings – but what about some of the artists that play earlier in the day?  Here are some acts that are worth checking out in Grant Park.


In my opinion, Friday offers the most complete top to bottom lineup, with a host of talented young indie bands throughout the afternoon.

12:00 – 12:45: Wye Oak – “Civilian” [Buy here]

1:00 – 1:45: Tennis – “Marathon” [Buy here]
