Every Summer there are three major music festivals that any music lover would die to go to: Coachella, Lollapolooza, and Bonnaroo. Each festival provides an eclectic, power-packed lineup of both popular and lesser known artists. There is something for everyone at each festival, from jam bands to rap to electronic dance music. Although the 2012 year has just begun, the wildly popular summer music festival Coachella is already sold out and it won’t be too much longer before Lollapolooza and Bonnaroo are too.
Not long after they released their star-studded lineup for 2012, which includes headliners Radiohead, the Black Keys, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, Coachella reported that all tickets were sold out. Other outstanding artists that will be performing include Florence and the Machine, Kaskade, La Roux, Arctic Monkeys, and many more.
Although Lollapolooza and Bonnaroo have yet to release their 2012 lineups, fans have much to look forward to. Judging by Lollapolooza’s lineup from last year which featured Eminem, Coldplay, Muse, the Foo Fighters, and Deadmau5, 2012’s lineup should not disappoint. For those unlucky music lovers that couldn’t get their hands on Coachella tickets in time, Lollapolooza is sure to be a worthy replacement plan.
While Bonnaroo has yet to release their 2012 lineup, last year they mixed it up a little bit with some older artists, such as Neil Young and G. Love & Special Sauce. However, Bonnaroo’s 2011 lineup still showcased many of the same artists who performed at Lollapolooza and Coachella. Eminem headlined at both Lollapolooza AND Bonnaroo!
So don’t be discouraged if you couldn’t get tickets to 2012 Coachella, try for Lollapolooza or Bonnaroo this year, you can’t go wrong.
