Lollapalooza 2013 Lineup Leaks?

Like we always do about this time…

And so it begins. Tonight, the first incarnation of the 2013 Lollapalooza lineup sprung a leak. This happens every year, and for the most part, it’s always bullshit. Of course a handful of the acts actually wind up on the bill (law of averages?), but for the most part, it’s a good old fashioned send off.

But even if the hip-hop acts suck I still hit Lolla every summer, and contend that it’s the best weekend of the year to live in Chicago. But if there’s any truth to this list, and Jay and Kendrick are on the bill, then you’re guaranteed find me in the building field.

Here’s the rumored bill for now:

Leaked so far: The Cure, Jay-Z, Mumford & Sons, The Flaming Lips, Blur, Skrillex, How To Destroy Angels, Feed Me, Knife Party, Steve Aoki, Eels, Tegan & Sara, Alabama Shakes, My Bloody Valentine, Kendrick Lamar, MGMT, Above and Beyond, Boards Of Canada, Lower Dens, Claude Von Stroke, IO Echo, Purity Ring, CHVRCHES, Alt-J, STRFKR, The Vaccines, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

Lollapalooza 2013 hit Chicago August 2-4. For more info on the Lolla conspiracy list head over to The Sights And Sounds.

    the lineup is fan made. last year’s was made by bryn rich aka @brynrich aka brynrich on the lolla forums. He made the lineup last year and this year’s was made by another very active user in the lolla forums..more than likely either a user called garpo or johnd(the lineup matches his top artist list for lolla exactly)..there are speculation about it being a couple of chicago radio personalities as well(but we rnt sure)

    the lineups are made by compiling data for tours and other concerts. the source code for the lolla lineup page is downloaded from last year’s page and the band names and replaced with the speculated ones. Very easy to do.

    i personally spoke with bryn regarding the newest lineups and he siad it isnt him, but then sarcastically said or is it. Last year he did “to fuck with the media”. this year is probably mroe fo the same.

    for more info check out where the twitter convos and other uodates are loacted including lineup leaks…newest leak is Wu Tang clan and a certain mau5 ;) check out the link for all the info http://www.windycityedm.com/2013/02/lollapalooza-2013-lineup-leak.html

    the lineup is also fake because there is no way Alabama Shakes name would be that small

    Jay-Z is playing Chicago this summer already, Blur and MBV will be in Europe during Lolla, Skrillex isn’t playing anything this year unless it’s with Dog Blood, How to Destroy Angels isn’t even a thing (but NIN are confirmed), The Flips are in no way a #6, Above and Beyond are playing EDC Chi, and a total of 8 people at Lollapalooza 2013 will remember who Eels are. But yeah, great “leak.”
