Lollapalooza teams with iTunes for sampler, setlists, live recordings

Music fans who attended this year’s Lollapalooza, which took place this past weekend in Chicago, were given an iTunes card that can be used to download a special collection of free tracks from artists who performed at the large festival. Lollapalooza organizers also said that live recordings from select bands on the festival’s top four stages will be available exclusively on the iTunes Music Store for 30 days. The live tracks have yet to be posted, however, and no release date has been given. In another partnership with iTunes, Lollapalooza attendees can also send a cell phone text message to receive setlists from the festival. After texting the keyword “setlist” and your email address to 56658, you’ll receive an email that will link directly to the setlists on iTunes.

Is this just for Lolapalooza attendees, or can people who didn’t go buy them on iTunes?  I live 45 minutes away from downtown Chicago but I couldn’t go, which really sucks since a third of the bands that played are some of my favorites on my iPod.  I really want to download The Raconteurs’ cover of “Crazy”.  Plus The Shins debuted new songs.  Anyone have an answer?

I am in the same boat manders.  I am also about 45 minutes and couldn’t go.  I was at last years and it was great.  Hopefully it’ll be available to download for everyone.

I don’t see how it wouldn’t be for everyone, especially since they’ll be selling it. I just wanna know WHEN it’ll show up in the store.
