Unless I'm mistaken, At The Drive In doesn't have a Chicago fest date do they? I know they play in May 19th but Riot Fest is 4 months later. They seem to have a soft spot for Blink and they're hitting some fests so they feel like a safe bet. One headliner that would kind of be out of left field would be MMJ. They have that small spring tour but don't hit Chicago and Lolla hasn't booked them the last 2 years. I normally wouldn't think so but after bookings like The National, Mod Mouse, and The Cure I don't think it's crazy.
Yeah we had a thread in the Music Lounge part and I posted similar bands as well- Blink, Deftones, ATDI, possibly Refused too since they're with the Deftones on tour. One that was out of left field that I thought was MMJ. They don't have any Chicago dates on their little spring tour, Lolla hasn't booked them the last 2 years, and after Riot's booked bands like Mod Mouse, The National, and The Cure I don't see MMj being out of their booking demo. That would be awesome imo.
