Tickets are now officially on sale for Lollapalooza 2007, August 3-5 in Chicago’s Grant Park. Among the 120-plus artists are behemoths Pearl Jam—in their sole U.S. show this year—as well as Daft Punk, Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, Muse, Iggy and the Stooges, Interpol, Kings of Leon, Modest Mouse, My Morning Jacket, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Perry Farrell’s Satellite Party, Snow Patrol, The Roots, Paolo Nutini, Femi Kuti and The Positive Force, and many more.

The 2006 edition of Lollapalooza filled Grant Park with more than 166,000 attendees of every stripe—figuratively and literally—with a healthy diet of favorites and a diverse array of new discoveries. Esquire Magazine said, “The best festival lineup of the summer? Lollapalooza, hands down.” Delivering a melange of pop, indie, funk, avant-garde, garage, and solo performers, it’s a show with few boundaries. A distinctive and essential element of Lollapalooza is its location: Grant Park in downtown Chicago. The show embeds itself into the fabric of the city’s most vibrant public space, in the shadow of the skyline and alongside Lake Michigan, making it a part of the city—not to mention the ease of travel to and from the site, hotels, restaurants, and downtown life.

In addition to the obvious headliners, the 2007 bill is packed with meteors and indie stalwart stars like The Black Keys, Regina Spektor, Spoon, Lupe Fiasco, G. Love & Special Sauce, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Yo La Tengo, The Hold Steady, Jack’s Mannequin, Amy Winehouse, Stephen Marley, Blonde Redhead, Sparklehorse, Sean Lennon, Son Volt, Peter Bjorn and John, Roky Erickson & the Explosions, Tapes ‘n Tapes, Heartless Bastards, and more.
