I’ve been going to Lollapalooza every year since 2011 and in that time I’ve been lucky enough to see at the multi-day festival held at Grant Park some amazing sets from legendary acts, as well as witnessing the rise of acts that have gone on to become some of our favorites today. This year’s edition sure added more fun memories and great performances, so below I’ve highlighted the moments that have stood out the most from my time at Lolla 2017.

We’re still feeling the body aches of a 4-day celebration of the 25th anniversary of the staple music festival, Lollapalooza… But it turns out those battle wounds also serve as a reminder of the absolutely dope experiences we had during the extended weekend. During these 4 days we got to see acts in all sorts of different stages in their careers, from established international performers to local superstars in the making. It’s almost too difficult to narrow down a list of our favorite moments in a concise manner, but it’s our job to let the world know what’s dope, and lucky for us, we got plenty to choose from.

So peep below for the dopest sights of the fest, along with highlights from sets by Red Hot Chili Peppers, Joey Purp, Vic Mensa, Jane’s Addiction, and Sir The Baptist, among others. Continue Reading

Chance The Rapper did the unthinkable and brought out the legendary R. Kelly during his set just hours ago. It was an amazing set backed by his Social Experiment band with a little help from Lili K, Eryn Allen Kane, Maceo Haymes (The O’My’s) and others on backup vocals. Chance even played a handful of songs off 10Day for the hometown crowd. The set also featured some new dance routines which can be seen in the “I Am Very Very Lonely” video. We’ll update this post once footage becomes available. Check out R. Kelly performing “Ignition (Remix)” up above.

Update: Watch Chance perform “Chain Smoker” & “Paradise” below.

Update #2: Looks like MyMindsArchive has uploaded the full set to Chano’s set. Watch while you can below. Continue Reading
