This year’s fest will feature Paul McCartney for the very first time, along with Metallica and Florence and the Machine as headliners.
Biting unfortunately seems to be a theme at recent concerts. See: Beyoncé and Jay Z’s Saturday night show at the Rose Bowl where a man’s finger was bitten off.
No word on if Barack plans on attending once his presidency is complete.
With so many great artists, it’s impossible to pick just one moment to be the highlight of this year’s festival. Here are some of our favorite performances from this year’s Lollapalooza festival.
We already knew some of the headliners (Eminem, Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, Skrillex), but the official release revealed a few new acts on the bill including Foster the People, Lorde, Avett Brothers and the rest of the bill.
The rest of the lineup will be revealed next week.
For Lollapalooza’s final night, The Cure wasn’t interested in chitchat. Robert Smith knows that you want him to just shut up and sing, and that’s what he did. Phoenix on the other hand…
“He was a brave little bunny,” Marcus Mumford said of bandmate Ted Dwane. “He played to over 100,000 people that week with that thing in his head.”
Lollapalooza 2013 marks Mumford & Sons’ return after Ted Dwane’s surgery, and the Postal Service are apparently make-out music.
Friday’s Lollapalooza lineup was infested with four-to-the-floor beats from the majority of bands morning to night because a) that’s what sells and that’s what’s on the radio.
