This year's Lollapalooza was off to a slow start with a forty minute delay and some light showers, but it quickly built up momentum as the music began. We caught artists from all genres, including G-Eazy, Melanie Martinez, The 1975, and more. It also proved that it takes a lot to ruin a festival, more than a little rain -- people in the crowd sported super stylish rain ponchos, protected their feet from mud baths with rain boots, and let the plethora of great musical acts distract them from any potential monstrosities. Check out who we were lucky enough to capture live last weekend.
Rapper/producer G-Eazy came out on stage looking as fly as ever and won the crowd over with his pump up party tracks and charismatic personality.
We can always count on Melanie Martinez to put on a great show. Wearing a babydoll dress while surrounded by a spectacular-yet-creepy set, in addition to her insanely powerful voice, Martinez managed to take us into a completely different universe.
The English indie rock/pop band put on a spectacular show as they pleased fans with their hits, "Somebody Else," "Love Me," and "UGH!"
What better act for Lollapalooza than Chicago-based rapper Towkio, AKA Preston Oshita? He appeared to be right at home.
As if we couldn't love Alessia Cara anymore... It happened. We fell deeper. Her voice resonated throughout the entire festival as she effortlessly sang tracks off of her debut album, Know-It-All.
Future probably drew in one of the biggest crowds as he charged out random phrases mostly, like "I woke up in a new Bugatti," and "I'm always dressing fancier than a mannequin."
Mac Miller being super fierce on stage... Unfortunately, no Ariana Grande appearance.
