Lollapalooza is mayhem, it’s a madhouse, and every year I find myself back there. This go-round it was 4 days long. I got to see Radiohead, M83, Bastille, Big Grams (Big Boi and Phantogram), Miike Snow, Frightened Rabbit, Leon Bridges, Chris Stapleton, Two Door Cinema Club, St. Lucia, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Silversun Pickups, Haim, Bloc Party, and LCD Soundsystem.
