Lollapalooza is coming, BrooklynVegan will be there in more ways than one (free late shows included)
Lollapalooza (more by James Richards IV)
Lollapalooza is coming to Chicago’s Grant Park August 2nd, 3rd & 4th.
Like we did recently at Firefly (see HERE, HERE and HERE), BrooklynVegan will be set up each day of Lolla inside the Soundwave Tent from 1-3pm. If you look at the festival map, you’ll see our space there right above the BMI Stage. That’s where we’ll be hosting live interviews and performances by a bunch of artists along with our stage hosts Billy Jones and the one and only Chris Gethard. Stay tuned for our full schedule next week to be posted on BrooklynVegan & BV Chicago, and can’t wait to chow down with you in Chow Town (especially at the River Valley Ranch booth).
BrooklynVegan is also hosting a series of late shows that weekend in Chicago starting with the Weedeater show at Ultra Lounge on Thursday (tickets), Then comes a FREE Thermals show on Friday, and a FREE Russian Circles show on Saturday. More details about the last two will be posted on BV Chicago on Monday (follow @BVChicago on Twitter too).
Meanwhile it’s only 7/26 while I’m typing this, and the festival we’re excited about this weekend is in Rhode Island.
