Hey Chi, IL... chiIL out this weekend with ChiIL Live Shows (adult) and ChiIL Mama (family friendly). We'll be covering the best of the fest!
We were at the first Lollapalooza EVER and we've been covering every day of the last 10 years Lolla & Kidza have called Chicago home! But don't let us tell you what to do and see. Get out there and explore for yourselves. We'll have photo recaps and features after the fact, but for now, here are some links from our friends at BMI, to help you find some new favs. This is one of our favorite annual showcases at Lolla and a sweet break from the huge headliner crowds.
