Lollapalooza Schedule Conflicts Revealed

Share this post

Today the promoters of Lollapalooza revealed the schedule for the August 3rd through 5th festival. Festival-goers excited by the lineup may be a bit less so once they see how many conflicts exist as their favorite bands are playing against each other.  Perhaps more so than other festivals, this problem is accentuated by the geography of Chicago’s Grant Park, where the two main stages are separated by approximately a mile.  Some examples:

Sharon Van Etten vs. Tame Impala
Passion Pit
vs. The Shins
Dawes vs. M83
Black Sabbath vs. The Black Keys

Jeff the Brotherhood vs. Bear in Heaven
The Temper Trap vs. Alabama Shakes vs. Fun
The Weeknd
vs. Franz Ferdinand vs. Bloc Party
Red Hot Chili Peppers vs. Santigold vs. Frank Ocean

Oberhofer vs. Hey Rosetta! vs. Bombay Bicycle Club
Gary Clark Jr
. vs. Dum Dum Girls vs. Imaginary Cities vs. Little Dragon vs. The Walkmen (ARE YOU KIDDING???)
Justice vs. Kaskade vs. Jack White

Which conflicts do you find the most problematic? Which bands would you choose to see?

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
