Lollapalooza: What to do outside of Grant Park

Lollapalooza is all about the weekend as a whole, not just Grant Park part. Sure, 138 artists and groups on 7 stages will take over Grant Park August 2nd-4th, providing over 30 hours of music to over 300,000 people, but the fun doesn’t stop there. All weekend (starting Thursday August 1st), we have events picked out for you to make the best out of the experience. Why not spend Lolla like the VIP you see in the mirror?

After an exclusive advanced screening of Focus Feature’s “The World’s End,” Filter Magazine  hosts a party to start a glorious and sure to be exhausting weekend at Logan Square Auditorium. Free drinks plus live sets by Smith Westerns and MNDR, the event starts at 9PM and is strictly 21+. Sponsored by PBR, do312, Fender, UBER, and more, be sure to give us a shout if you see us hanging out!

2013 Lolla Must Sees

My favorite post to write every year, and this year is no different. Many may be complaining that this year’s Grant Park lineup doesn’t compare to other major music festivals around the world, but those people aren’t looking hard enough. Last year I suggested catching Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, as they were destined for stardom (and boy has it hit hard, with a sold-out world tour approaching and 3 tracks in the Billboard Top 100), and Givers, who were up there for my favorite performance of 2012. So same drill… you will not find The Killers, Mumford & Sons, Phoenix, or even Kendrick Lamar and Chance the Rapper on this list. While I still highly recommend checking out all of those acts, here are the lesser known artists you can’t miss.
