Ah, the second day of Lollapalooza, Saturday August 4th. Your adrenaline is already running on high from the excitement of the first day, and now you are going to take on the epic crowds again. Temperatures will reach 95 on Saturday, so make sure that you have lots of water to keep hydrated.
After you make sure all of the necessities to enhance your experience at Lolla, it is time to focus on what is really important, the music! Some highlights to check out on Friday will be Chief Keef, who was added last minute a couple days before the festival. Hitting the Perry’s stage at 12:15 pm, it will be interesting to see what it is like when street rap hits the indie festival scene.
Another hip hop act to check out will definitely have to be the versatile sounds of hit maker B.O.B. Having rocked crowds at Lollapalooza 2010, it is obvious that he knows how to put on a great show. Check him out over at Perry’s stage at 4:30 pm.
Bass addicts will definitely need to head over to Perry’s for Skream and Benga’s face melting sets. Dropping their dirty UK grimy beats at 5:45 pm, your ears won’t know what hit them after this dynamic duo hits the decks. There might be some conflicts for those who want to see alternative R&B crooner The Weeknd belt out his mesmerizing tunes, his set begins at 6:00 pm, clashing with Skream & Benga’s and cutting it close to Calvin Harris’ set.
Alas, things can be worked out, because those who miss the Weeknd can still get a taste of some seriously amazing R&B with Frank Ocean’s headlining set at 8:45 pm on the Google Play stage, although Santigold’s mind bending set is also one that one would not want to miss over at Perry’s, starting at 8:45 pm also. Whatever choice you make, just make sure to enjoy every second of all the beautiful music!
