    Default Lollapalooza 2005

    The Pixies, Weezer, Widespread Panic, the Killers, the Arcade Fire, Liz Phair, the Black Keys and Death Cab For Cutie are among the acts that will play the reconfigured Lollapalooza festival, which, as previously reported, will be held July 23-24 in Chicago's Grant Park.

    Also on the bill are Cake, Dashboard Confessional, Dinosaur Jr., Kasabian, Kaiser Chiefs, Louis XIV, Tegan & Sara, M83, Los Amigos Invisibles, Blue Merle, the Redwalls, the Changes, Dandy Warhols, Digable Planets, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Billy Idol, the Bravery and Blonde Redhead.

    The lineup was announced today (April 22) in Chicago. Lollapalooza 2005 will be produced by Capital Sports & Entertainment and Charles Attal Presents -- the brain trust behind the successful Austin City Limits festival -- along with Lollapalooza owners the William Morris Agency and Perry Farrell.

    "This lineup is a cross between ACL and Coachella," Attal tells Billboard.com of the event, which will feature more than 70 acts on five stages. "It's the ACL model that we're bringing to Chicago."

    That model, Attal says, is a lower-than-expected ticket price, local food vendors, accessible stage layout and set times, as well as an amenity-heavy backstage vibe. "You've got to send a message," Attal says. "You take care of the bands, you take care of the music consumer who's buying the ticket, and they'll come back for more."

    Earlier this month, 2,000 Internet presale tickets sold out in 80 minutes, according to Capital Sports' Charlie Jones.

    "Whether or not that was a true indicator of the strength of this brand or the result of press leaks with the bands, we'll never know," Jones says. "But people who took that bet with us will get a fancy souvenir ticket."

    Now I have pretty broad taste, but they may as well have called this the
    "Eric, Stay the Fuck Home Tour".

    "2000 presale tickets". Wow. There are almost 2000 bands on the bill.
