Here We Go Again: Lollapalooza 2014 Fun Times

Hutchinson Field Grant Park - South End of Lollapalooza
It's Thursday, July 31st and that only means two things:

1)  July is over (has summer started?)
2)  Outkast is in our BACKYARD - oh and Lollapalooza officially invades Chicago tomorrow

Well technically, it's already invaded the city as the build-out for the festival has been underway in Grant Park for well over a week.

Anyway, for better or worse, the South Loop is ground zero for the festival.  That means we have to deal with some of the inconveniences (see obnoxious people) but it also means we have easy access to one of the worlds most renowned music festivals.

As of today, we're shooting to be at all three days of the festival.  We're going to do some documenting, but we also like to highlight some of the artists we're excited to see.  So without further ado here are some of the acts we're looking forward to (and let us know if we missed something you're excited about that we should check-out):

Bombay Bicycle Club (Friday, 2:30pm):

Broken Bells (Friday, 6:30pm):
Temper Trap (Saturday, 3:15pm):
Gramatik (Saturday, 4:30pm):
Nas (Saturday, 5:45pm):
Calvin Harris (Saturday, 8:45pm):
Outkast (Saturday, 8:15pm - LOVE ME SOME 'KAST):
Cage The Elephant (Sunday, 4:00pm):
The 1975 (Sunday: 4:45pm):
Chromeo (Sunday, 4:45pm):
Childish Gambino (Sunday, 6:00pm):
Chance the Rapper (Sunday, 8:30pm):
I'm exhausted just posting all of this...
