Everybody get ready. This year’s Lollapalooza is going to be as big as. . . well, as big as last year’s Lollapalooza. No kidding. We don’t kid around about something this serious. The festival is going down from August 1 through August 3 in Grant Park in the City with Broad Shoulders, Chicago.
VIP Concierge has VIP passes to the throw-down, like we do every year. We work hard, scouring the earth in search of tickets to the most anticipated exclusive events happening in the four corners of this pear-shaped world.
The recently announced headliners for this tres chic bash have everybody buzzing. Eminem, who recently smashed sales records for his new CD is going to be the final act on Friday night, which should get things going in the right direction. Outkast has reformed, just so they could be the headliners on Saturday. OK, that may not be true, but they are definitely going to be the main attraction Saturday night. Nashville’s very own Kings of Leon will be taking it to the limit one more time on Sunday. They’ll make sure to close the show with a big bang.
The rest of the groups that will be making music for your dining and dancing pleasure are no gang of slouches, just because they aren’t headlining. Maybe they don’t want to be the headliners. Other musical giants playing on Friday include the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Lorde, Zedd, Above & Beyond, Broken Bells, Interpol, Lykke Li, Phantogram, CHVRCHES, The Glitch Mob, Portugal.
