It’s been a busy weekend. Three days at North America’s most populated festival is not for the faint of heart, and I packed in a variety of performances at Lollapalooza‘s 20th anniversary. One of the wonders of Lolla is the range of fantastic acts featured, from mainstream veterans and rock legends, to up-and-comers and the next big thing. At a festival this massive you simply can’t do it all…but you can try.
The images below comprise a snapshot of my auditory adventures at Lollapalooza 2011. Yes, yes, there are some omissions in my itinerary. However, moral musical dilemmas must be decided, lobster corndogs must be consumed, and one needs to brave the porta-potty line at some point. The good news is, with so much talent packed into Grant Park, you really can’t go wrong.
