This weekend, the windy city of Chicago, IL is hosting one of the nation’s biggest musical festivals of the year: Lollapalooza. Don’t know who to see? Need some inspiration for planning your perfect day by day lineup? Look no further, the Lala has you covered with 10 acts you must see this weekend at Lolla.

1. Twenty One Pilots

Members of TØP, Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun, have such a killer energy both on and off stage. They adore doing festivals and totally bring it with their high energy alt pop rock songs. You’d be nuts to not see these two live!


Model turned lead singer, Paul James Klein and crew of LANY are an absolute must see at this year’s Lolla. They’re bringing 80s back and mixing it with indie pop in the absolute coolest way possible. Paul isn’t too sore on the eyes either (wink wink).

3. Halsey

I think we can establish that blue hair indie pop rising queen Halsey is a 100% bad ass. With female musicians taking over the industry one by one, Halsey is definitely one to watch for her bold lyrics and unique approach and style. She’s going to get the crowd bumpin’ and singing her awesome songs.

Calling all EDM fans, Kaskade is a festival must see. The songs will get your blood pumping and make you realize what a musical festival should be all about. Grab a buddy and make sure you’re in this crowd this weekend.

Electronic music duo ODESZA are going to fill Grant Park with some sick beats this upcoming weekend. They are definitely one of the top EDM acts on this lineup. You’re going to be want to be close for them so plan ahead Lolla goers!
