Lollapalooza 2010

Last year I took about 3 months to report back on my 1st Lolla experience. So this year I wanted to make sure to do so while the topic’s still relevant!

Going into the festival I must admit I had mixed feelings. Some of us bought our tickets and booked our flights months before the schedule was released, only to find out later that we would miss some of the main shows we wanted to see. However, having experienced the energy of Lolla 2009, we knew we were still in for a fun-filled weekend.

Instead of getting into too much detail here, let me refer you to my amazing friend Pati Erdos’ blog, where she already did a great job recounting the weekend’s greatest performances! To her post I will only add that I did not attend the Day 1 events (quite unfortunately, and thanks to American Airlines!), so my story would commence on Day 2. Also, I did watch most of Green Day – only running over to Phoenix mid show to catch their 3 final songs (which were amazing!) and then running back for the rest of Green Day! I must take my hat off to Billie Joe who, in my opinion, gave us the best performance of Lolla 2010…fireworks and all!

Aside from being inspired by awesome music, it was also a lot of fun to people-watch!

Among my favorite 2010 Lollapalooza performances: The XX, Metric, Spoon, Phoenix and (I can’t say this enough) Green Day!

Looking forward to being able to make this yearly visit to Chicago a tradition.

PS. Special thanks to AMF and the MH’s! Lifesavers and best hosts ever.
