This Lollapalooza 2015 coverage is presented by the JVC XX Elation
Lollapalooza was created by Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell in 1991 and continued through 1997 as the nation’s only major touring festival, touching down in cities all across America. When it was revived in 2003, organizers tried the touring formula once more, but since then have turned the festival into a typical weekend format located in Chicago’s Grant Park.
Since its inception, Lollapalooza has championed bands that wouldn’t typically make it onto a festival roster, helping early on to expose acts like Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, and Babes in Toyland. This year, the lineup is thick with unknowns who will be sharing the stage with such industry veterans as Paul McCartney and Metallica. Here are 10 of the best of those bands for you to enjoy during your time in Chi-town.
