While this type of music might surprise some, its emergence isn't new...it just appears to be gaining popularity. We've been going to Lollapalooza for some time and this type of music/party has been gaining steam. Here is our take on the phenomenon of Perry's stage, the non-stop-dance-til-you- pass-out area of Lollapalooza that is amazingly fun, intense and not usually sober.
Anyway, if you're a die hard fan of Perry's you will probably like the Spring Awakening festival. However, we are skeptical that there is enough demand for a full on two day electronic dance festival, but what do we know. We won't be going, but will be around Northerly Island and most definitely will be looking around and listening to the scene. Should be interesting.
For those wondering who is headlining, here is a video of Skrillex from Lollapalooza last year. He has the main spot inside Soldier Field on Sunday night:
