Lollapalooza 2010 Announces Lineup


CHICAGO (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Lady Gaga, Soundgarden, Arcade Fire and Green Day are among the headliners for this year's Lollapalooza festival.

The festival, produced by C3 Presents, is set to take place on August 6-8 at Chicago's Grant Park. Other artists on the lineup for 2010 include Cyprus Hill, The Strokes, MGMT, Social Distortion, Gogol Bordello, Erykah Badu, Spoon and Slightly Stoopid.

In addition to the alt-rock fare that Lolla is best known for, the festival is also hosting a DJ/Electronic music stage that will feature the likes of Felix da Housecat, Tiga and Dirty South.

Originally launched in 1991 by Perry Farrell as a touring alt-rock festival, the event became fixture on the summer touring scene until 1998 when it was cancelled after failing to line up a suitable headliner. The event was resurrected in 2003, but it struggled until Farrell partnered with C3 Presents (Capital Sports & Entertainment at the time), The William Morris Agency and Charles Attal Presents to make the festival a two-day (later changed to 3) Chicago-based affair. Chicago re-upped on the event in 2008, giving Lolla a home at Grant Park until 2018.
