Rock and Roll is a massive cultural phenomenon. Creating new tendencies and making consumable the “socially unacceptable.” Turing bands and its members into celebrities. Besides, there is nothing cooler than a concert and watching a band you like live.
But watching just one band isn’t enough. That is why music festivals were born, as well creating an incredible life experience. That is primitive, tribal and almost religious. In the world of festivals they’re many cool ones, but still one of the coolest ones is Lollapalooza.
Lollapalooza’s 2017 line up.
Since it’s creation back in 1991 and its revival in 2003 Lollapalooza has been one of the best festivals to go to. As you spend your weekend hanging out, listening to the music you love and discovering some new bands to fall for. Since their annual format the lineup for each year is one of the things that music lovers really wait for and now it has been finally released.
The festival will take place in Chicago’s Grant Park, as it has been since 2003, from August 3 to 6. This year’s edition will have Muse, Lorde, The Killers, Blink-182, Cage The Elephant, Arcade Fire, The XX, DJ Snake, Liam Gallagher, Alt-J and local hero Chance the Rapper as some of the most important artists that will headline the 4-day festival.
Something for everyone.
The lineup doesn’t stop there as it will also count with Justice, Whiz Khalifa, The Head and The Heart, Ryan Adams, Phantogram and Spoon, as well as up-and-comers Rag’n’Bone Man, Maggie Mae, 6lack, Sampha and Jain. Other artists invited are Hippo Campus, Foster the People, Kaleo, Glass Animals, Vance Joy, Mac DeMarco, Milky Chance, Grouplove, Charli XCX and much more.
On the other hand, one of the things that really stand out of this version is that the Hip-Hop scene will be strongly represented. As it’s the first time in 13 years that it has so many artists from this movement. Some of them are Run the Jewels, Big Sean, Lil Yachty, 21 Savage, Joey Bada$$, Noname, Russ, Machine Gun Kelly and Amine.
Get your ticket.
Due to the magnitude of the event, and its coolness, the price range varies a lot. Including general one-day tickets that go from $120 to the four-day Platinum ones that are $4,200. Again due to the buzz the Lollapalooza means all the four-day general admission tickets have sold out, but there are still other options.
As there still are a limited number one day VIP and Platinum tickets. Also, if you want to spend some cash for a fancier festival experience there are the four-day VIP Tickets, $2,200 plus fees, and the four-day Platinum Tickets,$4,200 with fees. So if you are quick enough you might still get into the tour bus. Any other doubt or feature you can find it on their official website at Lollapalooza.com.
