Put your (favorite) band on Lollapalooza’s radar

SHARE Put your (favorite) band on Lollapalooza’s radar

Apparently, we weren’t the only ones who heard a whole lotta grumbling about some of the choices made for this past summer’s Lollapalooza lineup. Fest organizers were listening, and now they want you to back up your words. Until November 10, you can suggest artists for the 2010 fest (August 6-8) on the website. It’s up to you whether you want to use your allotted five choices on obscure indie bands (like your own) or big-name hip-hop artists. This may just be a ploy so that Perry can pull out the ol’ “if you didn’t vote, you can’t complain” excuse next summer, but it’s worth a shot.
