Very heavy on the hip-hop....but still...Eminem, Outkast, Gambino, Nas...pretty solid. Plus AFI, Manchester Orchestra, The Avett Brothers, Portugal The Man, and Into It Over It.

Not incredible but still cool to see some over bands getting festival love.

This festival is so overrated. Nothing really great except Potugal, AFI, Manchester and Into it. I wonder if Riot fest can top it's amazing last years lineup

I agree, although it's had a few stacked years. This one is just downright bad.
2011 and 2013 were amazing lineups. But this one is just awful.
For one of America's biggest rock festivals, how do you only have 2 of the 6 headliners be a rock act? And on top of that, Arctic Monkeys are not headliner caliber in the States (yet). I've loved them for years but I wouldn't expect them to headline one of the biggest festivals here.

Looks like a solid line-up to me, don't get the hate

This could be a cool addition to a Chicago trip that's already been planned, but I'd need one day to be pretty stacked.

Individual days are posted, and tickets went on sale 30 minutes ago. I'm guessing most will sell out soon

There are some good bands there, obviously, but it's a weak lineup overall.

oh cool, I saw the full lineup but not the daily.
Saturday's looking good but it's just a few good acts short.

Oh well.

This is taking place the same weekend of Montréal's Osheaga, which The 1975 pulled out of. So much similarity in the line ups, but Lolla is a little bit better.

This honestly might be the worst major American festival (eg Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Sasquatch, All Points West/Governor's Ball) lineup since the big festival comeback started about 6 or 7 years ago. Almost hilariously terrible.

Arctic Monkeys are a great 2nd headliner (main support). They sold out Madison Square Garden a few times already. They have a fan base but they just aren't that big of name. I think they're one good album away from headliner status.

I've never made the trip to Chicago for this.... And this line-up wouldn't make the travel worth it... Would rather check out Riot Fest
