The 2019 Lollapalooza lineup came out today and I kind of like it, but then again, Lollapalooza weekend is one of my favorite things despite the lineup because there is always someone to see or something to do. The festival is an almost overwhelming 4 days again an some stand outs for me are Ariana Grande (probably the only way I’d ever see her live), Childish Gambino, Tenacious D, and the pretty cool Tame Impala.
As for the undercard, some interesting bands are Mitski, Slash, San Holo, Japanese Breakfast, Diesel…which is Shaquille O’Neal doing a DJ set, the very fun Boy Pablo, Men I Trust, Shaed, and lots more to be discovered! After skipping the last couple of years, I’m really missing the whole Lolla weekend experience including the fun, free after parties as well as Chicago in general (I could seriously write a ton of things that are great about this weekend…the music, the food, the beer, etc). As of right now, I don’t think it’s possible, but who knows?
Lollapalooza takes place at Grant Park in downtown Chicago from 8/1-8/4 and 4 day passes are currently on sale here.
