MV88 – helped me capture some audio over the course of the weekend. See the clip below from Ryn Weaver’s after show, captured on an iPhone and MV88!
Ryn Weaver’s aftershow at Schubas…she sounded so good, one of the better shows I’ve been to recently.
Sunscreen – always a winner.
Grant Park Fountain – it was windy all weekend, so if you stood near the fountain, you could get hit with a little mist here and there…a perfect way to cool off.
Artist Village – places to lounge and get out of the sun for a bit
Sylvan Esso – Even though this is just a duo made up of a producer and vocalist, they had the crowd vibing like crazy and those dance moves…Amelia, teach me your ways!
Getting to stand at Front of House inside the gates and away from the crowds!
Paul McCartney – I was pleasantly surprised.
Wind/Dust – anytime you were near the baseball field areas of Grant Park, the dust got insane because the wind was so strong
Storm/Evacuation – TWICE. Both times it was awful, but particularly the second one…the last night of Lolla, everyone’s tired and now everyone in the park is trying to leave at the exact same time to go home. All the buses and train were packed, you could not get a cab. It was never ending.
Young up-and-coming artists showing up to their set late to “look cool”
Sylvan Esso performing at the Pepsi stage.
FOH at Lord Huron’s set.
Paul McCartney – Yeah I know it’s Paul McCartney but still… Pyro and fireworks!
Funny things on sticks – The Mini Cooper was my favorite. Bradley Cooper’s face on a mini body. Hilarious.
Aftershows – A/C, smaller crowds, better sound and definitely more intimate.
Logic – The one act at Perry’s I could watch from beginning to end. He rocked it as usual
Generation X – Where did you all go? Millennials ruled the age demo despite having Sir Paul and Metallica closeout two of the nights.
Millennials – Act like you’ve been here before. Oh wait, this is your first time isn’t it.
Perry’s Stage – I get it, EDM EDM EDM but turn it down a smidge. Your bass drops interfered with live music on two stages.
Evacuation 2015 – Really messed up my schedule for Sunday. Way to go clouds.
Sturgill Simpson (totally out of place, but sounded GREAT!)
Brooke's Winners and Losers Day 1 - Friday, August 2nd Winners Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons cutting in line in front of me for the Port-O-Let and making small talk…
