Breaking news to everyone out in the midwest, ‘Lollapalooza’ is back! Now for those of you who have no idea what I am even talking about, think of it as the Coachella, of the center of the United States, specifically towards Chicago in Grant Park.
‘Lolla’ (Lollapalooza for short), Is also an enormous music festival put together by many leaders in the talent and music industry to create an atmosphere of multiple varieties of music and music culture. Lollapalooza was born 1991 and continued to run multiple times up until 2005, when it finally became what it is known for today. The Festival has also been a huge success outside of the United states, such as, Chile, Brazil and Argentina.
Prior to 2016, Lala hosted approximately 160,000 (and more) people for three days.
After 2015 the celebration that became one of the very few, amongst others, that lasts four days and includes some of the most musically inclined talent across the globe, attracting bands, singers and musical acts worldwide.
Lolla is also immensely known for giving a large number of artists some amazing exposure, for example: Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Imagine Dragons, Beastie Boys, King of Leon, Cold Play, Pearl Jam, The Killers, Rage Against the Machine and honestly i could be here all day name dropping.
The important part, the famous 2017 lineup of Lollapalooza:
Not only is the weather amazing right now in Chicago this weekend, 63° being the lowest and 83° being the highest, as opposed to festivals that are usually in California, and the weather in the summer is typically over 90 degrees, you get an amazing sunny day, with an even better breezy night. So if you’re in the area, you should buy your four day pass, and you really never know, your future favorite artists, band or even your music soulmate, could be there waiting for you.
