I’m only 11 sleeps away from helping my best friend move to Michigan. I’m so excited & can’t wait for him to be in life 24/7.
Also I get to see denial-bryan & her man very soon!
I hate to sound all cheesy but I’m kind of a lucky gal (:
Lollapalooza felt a little bit different this year to be honest. I wasn’t sure if I was getting older or if the crowd was getting more obnoxious. I honestly had a great time, but I felt like I was at a high school prom after party where everyone 18 & under were either high as fuck or drunk by noon.
Other than the crowd, the shows were pretty great. I noticed the lineup was not as solid as 2013, but there were still some amazing bands. Some honorable mentions include Bombay Bicycle Club, Warpaint, Phantogram, RAC, Kate Nash, Grouplove, Kongos, and Gemini Club. Huge shoutout to denial-bryan for taking me to see Kate Nash!
This year seemed like Lolla was aiming to please fans of all genres and not be alternative/indie focused. I think the heavy addition of pop/rap music is what brought the strange crowd this year. Last year it seemed like everyone there had a huge passion of music. Everyone came to Lolla to see a great show. These year it seemed like at least half of the crowd was there to party & really didn’t care about the music.
After reading some online reviews I found that many others have similar opinions as I do. We all agree it was a great year, but it was missing that spark from 2013. I’m hoping 2015 brings back that festival magic that this year was sort of lacking.
I honestly had a great time and will most likely be back for 2015. There are too many great bands that cross the Lollapalooza stage that make it worth every penny. I also love hanging out with Rachel for three days as we dance to our favorite bands and eat an insane amount at Chow Town. (Chow Town is probably one of the best things ever tbh). Lollapalooza will always have a special place in my heart & will remain as one of my favorite festivals.
