New this year will be the addition of an on-site pseudo nightclub called "Perry's," showcasing DJ and electronic artists including Bassnectar, MSTRKRFT, Simian Mobile Disco, and a DJ set by Animal Collective (who will also perform their regular set during the festival).
Lollapalooza will once again be held at Chicago's Grant Park, which it has called home since the event was reincarnated, reconfigured and re-imagined as a three-day destination festival four years ago. Held August 7 through 9, a limited number of early-bird tickets are currently available for $195. Farrell pointed out to Spinner that, with well over 100 bands on multiple stages, that works out to less than $2 per band. Perhaps that's wrongly assuming that you can see every band at the festival but, hey, it is still cheaper than an average ticket for Britney Spears.
