If you're like a lot of people, you're probably terribly excited at the moment. Lollapalooza is coming and many folks are anxiously waiting until the iconic festival starts this weekend.
Over a hundred bands and thousands of people are set to take over downtown Chicago and transform it into one the largest music gatherings in the country. But with so many bands performing, who should you see? Should you see legacy acts such as New Order and The Cure or check out some up-and-comers such as Chance the Rapper and Wavves? Who is worth your time and effort? Our friends at Chicagoist have some reccomendations (Friday) (Saturday) (Sunday), but we own albums by many of the performers at Lolla at the library for you to use and to figure out who you want to see. Check out the list below.
Friday, August 2
Saturday, August 3
Sunday, August 4th
Lollapalooza is sold out, so unless you already have tickets or know somebody, you probably aren't getting in. That's a drag, but a good chunck of the festival is being streamed on Youtube so you can watch your favorite bands play live in the comfort of your home away from thousands of sweaty people. Hooray! Hooray for technology! The good folks at Spin Magazine have the schedule for that if you are interested.
