The Airspace has so-far been dedicated to bringing you news, updates, and speculation about 2012’s Lollapalooza. Now we have a new batch of updates ahead of Wednesday’s official lineup release.
Already Lollapalooza has been teasing its lineup in a series of ads online and popping up at Chicago Transit Authority stops. These ads feature lyrics to select songs followed by “#lolla.” General detectives that we are, connecting song lyrics to artists (e.g. “Do the D.A.N.C.E. #lolla” is strong evidence that Justice will be coming to the August festival), we have first a group of partially confirmed, very likely to appear in Grant Park, musicians. It has since grown to fifteen artists, according to HuffPost’s latest count.
The new development comes our way by Brazil. Apparently, at last weekend’s Lollapalooza Brazil event in Sao Paolo, a sheet with the Chicago Lineup was uncovered. The blurry cam photo has been spreading online since. At one point as of last night, MTV Brazil hosted a page supporting the authenticity of the document, but the page has since been taken down. The only thing giving real credence to this lineup is how much it corresponds with what other investigations have uncovered, particularly Consequence of Sound’s fairly thorough rumor rundown.
Once again the whole thing is purely speculation, but if it is a falsified list—a Lollapalooza logo does not an official document make—it is one done with expertise unlike the earlier @Lollaleaks fraud.
What do you think? Just another spoke in the rumor mill? Or do we have a real preview of what’s to come?
