Lollapalooza Releases Schedule

Lollapalooza, the three-day music festival in Chicago August 1st to 3rd, released its schedule yesterday. Daily grids show set times and stages for the event. Festival goers can visit and decide whether to see Bloc Party or the Raconteurs, Wilco or Rage Against the Machine, and Flogging Molly or Blues Traveler (or better yet, finding something to eat). Users can also create a custom schedule on the website and forward it on to friends.

Three-day passes are still available while limited quantities of single-day passes went on sale for $80. Admission is free for kids ten and under accompanied by a ticketed adult.
