Lollapalooza is celebrating its 25th anniversary by expanding to a four-day extravaganza from July 28th-31st. As with every music festival, there are going to be a tons of acts to see and some scheduling conflicts. Over the next four days, Mind Equals Blown is going to give you some acts to look forward to as well as the after shows you should keep an eye on for each day. Let’s break down Thursday.
Melanie Martinez: 3:00 PM @ The Bud Light Stage – Martinez’s well received concept album, Crybaby was released in 2015 and the Long Island born singer has been riding the wave ever since. Fresh off of a tour that saw a multitude of sold out dates, Martinez, who is also known for an elaborate stage show that showcases her “dollhouse” persona is a must see early in the day.
Danny Brown: 4:00 PM @ The Petrillo Bandshell Stage – If you are looking for high energy rap – look no further than Detroit’s own Danny Brown. Currently putting the finishing touches on his fourth album, Brown’s will definitely make the most of his time and may throw a crowd surfing session in there too.
AlunaGeorge: 6:30 PM @ Pepsi Stage – Chances are that AlunaGeorge’s melodies has been implemented into your radio DNA with the London synthpop duo’s collaborations with Jack U and Disclosure. It’ll be the middle of the day and you’ll most likely want to dance and listen to some good music you can groove to. Check out AlunaGeorge at the Pepsi stage.
Excision: 7:00 PM @ Perry’s – Make sure you have some ear plugs in town as this Canadian dubstep specialist will play a beat-heavy hour plus set. As always, the DJ is working on new music, so there will be new tunes mixed in as well.
Lana Del Rey: 8:45 PM @ Bud Light – Now, there’s some real schedule conflicts that come into play here. Are you going to go to the Samsung Stage to check our J Cole‘s set? Maybe you’ll head back to Perry’s to see Chicago’s very own Flostradamus? Given that Del Rey is not playing many concert dates in the U.S. so far, her set will be a must see to end your Thursday night.
