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?

Week that Was (2-21-13 to 2-27-13)

More hip-hop than you usually see on the “Week that Was,” thanks to some strong features from Chance the Rapper, Action Bronson, and Kendrick Lamar. AlunaGeorge keeps cranking out awesome tracks, really setting themselves apart from the rest of the music world. I am dying to see that duo live. Make sure to check out more of Hundred Waters and Ghost Loft if you get some time, the remixes here don’t completely do the bands justice. Expect big things from them. Keep sending new music! We really appreciate it, and love hearing new things. Enjoy!

Emeli Sandé @ Lincoln Hall 1/22

Emeli Sandé, the 25-year-old talented artist from London, played Tuesday to a sold out Lincoln Hall crowd. Sandé is already a huge artist in the UK, performing in both the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2012 Olympics, and selling more copies of her album Our Version of Events than any other artist in 2012 in the UK. With honest lyrics, a gospel-infused sound and a pure vocal range, Sandé wowed her audience Tuesday night. If you haven’t listened to this girl yet, make sure you find her on Spotify ASAP. Check out photos from the show after the jump!
