Last year, I decided to go a different route here on CCF for this weekend’s popular music festival — instead of a “what to wear to Lollapalooza” type of post, I thought I’d get all Anthony Bourdain on you and create The Lollapalooza Layover — basically what to do this weekend if you’re in town for Lolla and will not be at the festival from open ’til close. But a lot has happened in a year. So it’s time for an update!
Every year I like to do some sort of Lollapalooza post but I always have to change it up. It’s such a huge event that attracts people from all over the world and it’s pretty cool to have it here in Chicago. Last year, it was all about those Lolla Dos and Don’ts and this year, I’m pretending to be Anthony Bourdain for just a sec.
With one of the largest music festivals in the world happening this weekend in Chicago, there’s a lot of good, bad, and down right crazy about to go on at Lollapalooza. I’m sure you’ve gotten your fair share of “what to wear to a music festival” posts, last year I shared my Lollapalooza essentials (which go for any music festival, really) and this year I’m doing something a little different.
I don’t like crowds, I don’t particularly love guys in tank tops yet for some reason I’ve always enjoyed going to Lollapalooza. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s the perfect opportunity to judge people with no remorse or the fact that I can let out my inner hipster (which is more just like a fake hippy) but regardless of all that…I went…and it was awesome.
Things started off at the Gilt City rooftop party Saturday at EnV…
Rooftops are the most valuable asset when it comes to Chicago summers. Remember that.
