Lollpalaooza took over downtown Chicago once again this past weekend for three days of live music from around the world. Festival goers were treated to live music from new artists and bands that they had never heard of before, while old fans flocked to see their iconic bands play one of the big stages in North America. Over 100,000 fans packed Grant Park in Chicago everyday to discover new music and appreciate the music they already knew they loved. It was a gathering of music aficionados from around the world, and Lollapalooza delivered on a grand scale. Music festivals are about the experience, about being there in the sun and at night, feeling the energy of the band and the crowd. While pictures can’t do Lollapalooza 2013 the justice it deserves, it at least gives us somewhere to start when trying to convey just how amazing of a weekend of music it was.
