Lollapalooza 2013: What to Wear (Guys Edition)

We couldn’t leave the guys hung out to dry after yesterday’s Ladies What to Wear post. For the past two years, we’ve brought you the top summer trends to rock during Chicago’s biggest music fest, and the guys edition is back once again as well. Luckily the weather seems like it’s going to comply, so follow the guidelines below and there’s a good chance you’ll make the Best Dressed list of a fashion blog or two ;). Let us know if there are any looks you think are an absolutely necessary addition.

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?

Thursday

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.

2012 Lolla Must Sees

The best weekend of the summer is rapidly approaching, and we’re here to help make it that much of a better experience.  Last year we recommended Local Natives, Black Lips, Kids These Days, The Vaccines, and the Naked and Famous to name a few, and they all delivered. So here we go again; the Lolla Must Sees, outside of the headliners that you already have on your schedule. Think of this as your what to do before 8 PM.

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday must sees after the jump!
