The annual Chicago based music festival Lollaplooza is back and will be held on July 31st to August 2nd at Grant Park. As always, the lineup is filled withtop notch talent that spans every genre.
This years headliners include the legendary Beatle Paul McCartney, metal kings Metallica and powerful UK singer Florence and the Machine. Other notable acts include Sam Smith, Bassnectar, The Weeknd, Alt-J, Alabama Shakes, Of Monsters and Men, Kaskade, Alesso, Tame Impala, A$AP Rocky, Kid Cudi, Brand New, TV On The Radio, Nero, Dillon Francis, Twenty One Pilots, G-Eazy, Flying Lotus, Hot Chip, Walk The Moon and many more.
This incredibly diverse lineups may shoot Lollapalooza to the very top this year, I mean who has managed to nab both Paul McCartney and Metallica?! While the second and third lines are chock full with the radio friendly acts that are the “it” bands once you delve a little deeper into the lineup that is when the real gems appear. The inclusion of Kid Cudi, Brand New, Gogol Bordello, Flying Lotus, Stromae and Banks is enough for me to buy a ticket straight to Chicago. Do not miss out on one of the years biggest musical events.
