Once the poster child for innovative touring festivals and, in its latter years, misguided lineups, Lollapalooza has risen from the ashes to become one of the elite music fests in the world.
Outlook: Lolla boasts a power-packed lineup and will sell out again in 2010. Producer C3 Presents is on a roll with Lolla, and its Austin City Limits festival in October sold out without announcing a single band.
