Lollapalooza is taking over Chicago’s Grant Park this weekend with headliners Metallica, Paul McCartney Sam Smith, The Weeknd, Florence & the Machine, and more.

BrooklynVegan, SPIN and VIBE are returning to the sold out festival this year with a presence in the Toyota Tent which is located within the grounds of the Chicago festival. The tent, just north of the BMI stage, is marked “Toyota Sound Central” in this map:

Like previous years, the Toyota Tent will host live performances, live Q&As and DJ sets from 1-7 PM each day. Stop by to check out intimate, bonus sets by artists playing the festival (For instance, Glass Animals play the Samsung Galaxy Stage Friday at 2:15. You can then see them again in the Toyota tent at 6pm the same day).

Come see BrooklynVegan Lolla representative Billy Jones interview Albert Hammond Jr of the Strokes on Sunday at 1pm. Stick around to say hello to Toyota Tent host Yassir Lester, and to see Of Monsters & Men and Gogol Bordello play inches from your face. Come see BrooklynVegan-presented performances by Twin Peaks and Pell on Saturday afternoon. Check out the full weekend schedule below….
