Hitting Lollapalooza this weekend? There's an app for that.

Just launched in time for the Aug 7-9th festival, the handy iPhone application lets you browse the lineup by day and artist, read bio info on each group, and add any performance to a customized schedule -- making your concertgoing experience way more efficient than anything involving Care Bears On Fire should be.

The Lolla app also provides a map of the Grant Park festival grounds, plus a "Now Playing" tab that lets you see which bands are performing within the next two hours.

Other useful Lollo-related iPhone apps include:

  • Buster: The Chicago Bus Tracker: Quick and easy way to find out how long the wait for a Chicago bus will take. $0.99
  • Guide Map Chicago: Mobile access to detailed interactive Chicago maps. $1.99
  • SPIN Mobile: Includes festival coverage for Lollapalooza. Free
  • MusicFest 09: Lineups, personalized agenda, encore flame and festival maps for Lollapalooza and other music festivals. $1.99
  • TentFinder: Find your tent amongst the thousands of others, using GPS technology. $1.99
