Lollapalooza apes Sasquatch! and adds more for its 2009 installment

Perry Ferrell’s Lollapalloza released its 2009 lineup today and it includes some pretty heavy hitters that will be filling Chicago’s Grant Park Aug. 7-9 including Tool, Depeche Mode, The Beastie Boys, Ben Harper, The Decemberists and others.

After taking a quick glance at the bill for the three-day event it looks like most every major band that is performing at this year’s Sasquatch! Festival will also be at Lolla. Although Lolla may have most of Sasquatch’s! big names, it doesn’t have The Gorge. So Washingtonians will definitely get the benefit of having a beautiful concert setting with fewer people as opposed to the near 100,000 people that will cram into Grant Park on a hot summer day in the Windy City. But then again, Chicago gets Tool, so it’s a wash.

Here’s the lineup:

* Depeche Mode * Tool * The Killers * Jane’s Addiction * Beastie Boys * Kings of Leon * Lou Reed * Ben Harper and Relentless7 * Thievery Corporation * Snoop Dogg * Rise Against * Andrew Bird * TV on the Radio * Vampire Weekend * The Decemberists * Neko Case * STS9 (Sound Tribe Sector 9) * Animal Collective * Band of Horses * Of Montreal * Arctic Monkeys * Coheed and Cambria * Ben Folds * Fleet Foxes * Silversun Pickups * Kaiser Chiefs * Crystal Castles * Bon Iver * Santigold * Atmosphere * Dan Auerbach * Cold War Kids * Deerhunter * Lykke Li * Robert Earl Keen * Peter Bjorn and John * Heartless Bastards * Gomez * Glasvegas * Federico Aubele * Dan Deacon * Passion Pit * Zap Mama * The Raveonettes * The Gaslight Anthem * The Airborne Toxic Event * White Lies * Ra Ra Riot * No Age * Asher Roth * Los Campesinos! * Bat For Lashes * Chairlift * Gang Gang Dance * The Virgins * Amazing Baby * Portugal. The Man * The Knux * Ida Maria * Delta Spirit * Friendly Fires * Manchester Orchestra * Constantines * Ezra Furman & The Harpoons * Hockey * Miike Snow * Alberta Cross * Hey Champ * Sam Roberts Band * The Henry Clay People * Davy Knowles and Back Door Slam * Cage the Elephant * Living Things * The Low Anthem * Blind Pilot * Langhorne Slim * Other Lives * The Builders and The Butchers * Eric Church * Joe Pug * Kevin Devine * The Greencards * Carney * Thenewno2
