Lollapalooza 2018 Saturday pics (Vampire Weekend, St. Vincent, more)
The 2018 edition of Lollapalooza continued on Saturday (8/4) in Chicago’s Grant Park. Vampire Weekend told the Lolla crowd that their new album is done during their headlining set, which conflicted with The Weeknd‘s. Day three of the festival also included sets from St. Vincent, Daniel Caesar, GoldLink, LL Cool J, Lil Pump, Bomba Estereo, Tank and the Bangas, and more. Check out pictures from the whole day in the gallery above.
According to Time Out New York, St. Vincent’s set “deserved top billing”:
Back when Lollapalooza’s lineup was announced, organizers received some valid criticism for not booking any female artists as headlining acts. St. Vincent’s late-afternoon performance—as compelling and visually arresting as anything that’s graced the main stage so far this weekend—only called more attention to the glaring lack of women among the upper echelons of the lineup. Digging into the intimate electro-pop of her recent album, MASSEDUCTION, Annie Clark unleashed gut-wrenching lyrics and towering guitar melodies from atop a riser, leading her masked band as strange imagery flashed behind her. It felt like a headlining set, and it probably should have been.
