Lollapalooza ’08

Lollapalooza ’08 took place from August 1-3, 2008 at Grant Park in Chicago, IL.  Noah and the Whale was initially supposed to open the AT&T stage on Friday, August 1, but they were replaced by Holy Fuck.  When the initial lineup was announced, Santogold was listed as participating but were eventually removed.  The Weakerthans were scheduled to play the Playstation 3 Stage on Sunday, August 3, but canceled at the last minute.
