Festivalist '09: Lollapalooza Schedule

Perry Farell & company announced the schedule for Lolla ’09 last week.  I officially ruled out my attendance for this year’s fest in Chi-town, but I still like to plan I am (Sunday’s overlapping artists would give me a panic attack).  I decided it might be best to those who will be attending, give their thoughts on what looks like a lot of tough choices this year.

Jen of Talkin’ Bout My Jeneration had this to say:

The schedule feels a little unbalanced to me. Most of the bands I wanted to see are the ones that are overlapping, yet there are a few blocks of time that I don’t have anything. I’m VERY pissed that peter bjorn and john are overlapping the decemberists and Andrew bird on friday…

It’s going to throw me off that there are so many to see on Friday and yet Saturday (other than the lykke li/tv on the radio issue) is pretty low key. I’ll probably be able to stick to the north side with santigold, tv on the radio, ben harper, and beasties…

Sunday is pretty horrible/awesome because so many names are stuffed into that day (Kaiser chiefs, neko case, dan auerbach, band of horses, passion pit, cold war kids, vampire weekend) hot damn! I was planning on staying for the whole neko case set because I’ve been so into her NPR live shows lately. But with passion pit, VW, and cold war kids all on the opposite side of the park, I might end up having to catch some solo show of her’s when she comes through Chicago….I think the killers will be an awesome show to close the weekend out with.

So what do you think?  If you’re planning on going, what are the biggest line-up conflicts?  If you’ve seen some of these bands, who would you choose?  Comment Below.

Either way, I’ll be living vicariously through all Lolla ’09 attendees.
