Every music festival has its pros and cons. Lollapalooza has the advantage of being in the heart of one of the world’s greatest cities. The con to that is that the festival is forced to cut the music promptly at 10 P.M. due to sound ordinances.
Every year Lollapalooza ensures that its attendees have the chance to keep the party going until the early morning with its official aftershows. Lollapalooza performers will be flocking to various Chicago venues right as Grant Park turns its music off for these aftershows. Lollapalooza and React Presents have teamed up to bring you this amazing schedule of shows.
The party will be kicking off on Thursday, July 30th, the eve of Lollapalooza 2015. So if you need to start your party weekend off early then head over to The MID to catch What So Not. With his ‘Gemini EP’ coming soon you can definitely expect to hear some new music. If that’s not enough- then you can skip on over to Primary to watch one of the hottest music collectives in the game right now – MVNGCSTL featuring acts such RoboKid and AObeats.
Hip hop heads will have the chance to flock to Concord Music Hall to scream and mosh to Tyler, The Creator. If french DJs are more up your alley, then hop on the L and make your way to The MID once again for ‘Pardon My French’ a night featuring DJ Snake and Madeon on the decks.
Carnage will be invading The MID for a night sure to be filled with festival trap, hardstyle, trance and big room house. If Swedish elecro-house is what you’re looking for than find a way to make it up to The Aragon Ballroom to catch Alesso with support from SNBRN.
If you still have energy left by Sunday night then you have a few choices of what to attend. Boys Noize will be having a ‘Boys Noize Records Showcase’ at Evil Olive. Kygo will be having a tropical house weekend ending dance party at Concord Music Hall, and Nero will be taking over The MID to make sure that Lollapalooza 2015 goes out with a bang.
Tickets just went on sale – so hurry up and scoop yours if you haven’t already! Hope to see some of you in Chicago for one of the most fun weekends of the year.
