Lollapalooza 2010 "Rumors"
It is nowhere near close to April, the month Lollapalooza releases its official line-up, but already the rumor mill is going full speed, especially within the last 24 hours when the first of the "rumored" headliners was announced by The Daily Swarm citing credible industry sources. The Swarm reported that Green Day, Lady Gaga, and Soundgarden had been confirmed to perform as headliners. The Chicago Tribune was next today in revealing that aside from those 3, New York rockers The Strokes, and Canadian super-group Arcade Fire's "negotiations were progressing" to head-line as well. The Tribune also mentioned that other smaller acts were confirmed, such as Yeasayer, The Dirty Projectors, and The XX. They will also be accompanied by other acts that have been "confirmed" such as the Flaming Lips, Phoenix, Cut Copy, and Hot Chip. Other acts being rumored today include MGMT, The Cribs, and Hockey. No official word yet but history shows that these "rumors" are mostly always true. There is still one more headliner spot up for grabs which could go to Muse, or The Gorillaz, or basically any big name act.
