Faronheit Blog claims to have friends in high places. Friends that apparently are kind enough to share half of the possible 2009 Lollapalooza line-up (Aug 7-9 @ Chicago's Grant Park). In an alleged email sent to Faronheit from an anonymous "friend", they state that 90% of the line-up is indeed accurate while 10% is possibly fake. Right now it seems to be one of the only "credible" lists floating around out there for the festival so I thought I'd share it with you seeing as Lollapalooza is the only festival I might actually be making it to this year. (Well... maybe Oshega too). Read Faronheit's full post here.

Chicago Reader Blog takes a different approach at predicting possible Lolla performers. They calculate which bands have an album coming out, are able to command higher fees than what Pitchfork's festival offers(also held in Chicago) and are currently on tour but have inexplicably skipped Chicago (due to possible adherence to Lollapaloozas blackout rules).

According to the Chicago Reader post, these artists include:
Girl Talk, Bon Iver, No Age, Peter Bjorn and John, Animal Collective, Atmosphere, Bat for Lashes, the Decemberists, Jason Mraz, Lykke Li (AHHHHHHHHH), Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy, MIA, PJ Harvey, Lil Wayne and Sonic Youth

Early-Bird tickets for Lollapalooza go on sale on March 31st (that's in 3 days ya'll)

*Beastie Boys
