Lollapalooza 2014

I’m happy to say that I’m officially done with my Business minor. I’ve been very busy this summer the reason I haven’t really posted anything. However, I’m back and with a great story!

I  finally took off Lollapalooza from my To-do list. I had the amazing opportunity of finally attending this music festival in the beautiful city of Chicago. Not only was it my first time going to the festival, but also to the city.

So, even though Lollapalooza was not what I expected –huge and exhausting– it was very fun. I attended this event with three other friends from Dallas. We arrived a day before the festival to have at least one day to explore the city. I do wish we could’ve stayed longer since I feel there was still so much more to see.

However, back to Lolla and its music, I have to say that Arctic Monkeys and Kings of Leon were definitely the best sets out of all the others I saw. I may include Lorde in there too. I haven’t stopped listening to her album after seeing her live and I would love to see her again.

One of the things I loved about Arctic Monkeys’ set was the fact that they started with my favorite song –Do I wanna Know?– which I thought would be played at the end. Plus, Alex Turner’s hip movements are to die for.

However, I didn’t stay for their entire set since Eminem played at the same time –literally on the opposite side. And this is definitely one of the things I hate most about music festivals. They always schedule the best artists at the same time making you choose between one or the other.

So even though I’m more of an Arctic Monkeys fan I felt some kind of necessity to go see Eminem, since we do go way back –to middle school. And I’m really glad I did. Surprise guest from Rihanna was one of the best parts of my Lollapalooza experience. Running as fast as I could to the other side of the park was worth it. Plus, let’s just say I have some history with one of their songs.

So overall Lollapalooza was a lot different than I thought it would be. I was not mentally or physically prepared for that amount of people, walking, running, rain, food, and booze. Yet, I do recommend it! I do wish I could write more, but this post would be more tiring than what the actual festival was, so attend Lollapalooza next year and see for yourself!

Other Artists I Saw: Iggy Azalea, Martin Garrix, Joywave, NONONO, Gesaffelstein, London Grammar, Outkast, Chromeo, GROUPLOVE, Foster the People, The 1975, Childish Gambino, Rebelution, and Young the Giant.
