Just a quick announcement that for the third year in a row, this Newsvine writer has secured a press pass for Lollapalooza.
I will be seeding links to Lollapalooza-related news leading up to the big weekend at Lollapalooza 2009.
Details on this year's festival, to be held in Chicago's Grant Park the weekend of August 7-9, 2009, can be found at the official Lollapalooza site.
Interviews with various acts are being arranged. Please let me know in the comments if there are any bands you yearn to hear from and I will try to secure interviews.
Also, if you are planning to attend this year's Lollapalooza, please get in touch so we can meet up. Also, I may pass off some interviews to others if possible, and if you're attending and are going to review any of the acts, please be sure to post your articles to the Lollapalooza 2009 group.
Being granted this press pass for three years running is due in large part to the success of Newsvine as a whole, and though current life circumstances (for instance, a job or two) prevent me from participating as much as I used to around here, I still believe that Newsvine can be a platform from which solid writers can jump into the wider world of publishing.
Maybe I'll get another tattoo this year!
Welcome to Lollapalooza 2009!
