Now that the hype for Lollapalooza has somewhat died down, I feel like now I can actually discuss it without someone scoffing about the headliners. Haters gonna hate. Every year I hear people bash the lineup of Lolla and I will admit that I have been one of those people. And its usually because I am jealous that the person boasting about the lineup had gotten tickets to Lolla. The tickets sell out so fast! I couldn’t get 3-day passes, so I opted for 2 single-day passes instead.
Paul McCartney! whaaAAAAT? I believe this may be Lolla’s greatest performance yet. And then to close out the festival with my favorite band, Florence + the Machine?! OK, Lollapalooza, you win. Take my money. Then add Alabama Shakes, Alt-J, Gary Clark Jr, Tame Impala, Hot Chip, Cold War Kids, Marina & The Diamonds, Of Monsters and Men, TV On The Radio makes it even more worth my while.
I am also looking forward to some up-and-coming artists like George Ezra, Misterwives, Shakey Graves, FKA Twigs, Father John Misty, and Tove Lo.
I can’t wait to write about my fav performances later this summer! Stay tuned…
