It's not unheard of for production companies to use the same talent in multiple events, so having Outkast at Lolla means that C3 could bring Outkast to LouFest, as well -- especially because OutKast is primarily performing at festivals this year. However, Outkast is playing a four-day festival in England during LouFest weekend, but the guys are only booked for September 5. That means that Big Boi and Andre 3000 could fly to St. Louis for the final evening of LouFest on September 7. Probable? Maybe not. But it's possible. We can still keep our fingers crossed.
Beyond the headliners, Lollapalooza also announced supporting acts this morning, including Calvin Harris, Lorde, Foster the People, Zedd, Childish Gambino and the Head and the Heart. These are fine acts, but nothing that will make us drive to Chicago -- most of these performers have hit St. Louis recently or will visit soon, with Lorde playing the Peabody Opera House last week and the Head and the Heart playing Pointfest in May.
