Remember this equation: Lollapalooza plus Lucinda equals the 2005 ACL Music Festival. It's not quite that simple – you first have to factor in a lot more hippies and legends like Buddy Guy and Jimmy Cliff – but it's clearer than ever that the local festival is now comfortably among America's elite.
