LOLLAPALOOZA!

This is pretty cool. Hop on over the the Lollapalooza website and check out the time capsule in celebration of the music festival’s 20th anniversary. Perry Farrell’s vision of an alternative traveling carnival was instrumental in what was to become mainstream over the next few years. Lolloapalooza changed the game and for the first time opened peoples eyes to the power of alternative music and was way ahead of it’s time showcasing diverse acts, side shows and vendors.

The traveling version of the fest hit some lean years in the late 90’s but resurfaced strong in 2003 as a one city mega concert in Chicago. This summer the 3 day event features the return of classic alternative¬†stalwarts Big Audio Dynamite and a slew of current acts. Click HERE to check out the time capsule! Definitely worth it.

And feel free to post some of your Lollapalooza memories from any year. I’d share a few of mine but I they would all involve the story starting out “One year at Lollapalooza, I was really drunk.”
