when did lollapalooza get great again?

prince, roger waters, the breeders, and gogol bordello out in indio for coachella are pretty much all i need from a music festival,

but perry farrell seems to have done some crazy ass overachieving, cuz look at this nonsense that he put together for lolla this year – a sample:
