Lollapalooza 2016 Line-up – Oh how tempting

Oh the temptation.  Anyone who reads this page regularly will be well aware that my summer’s are spent at music festivals.  For some time now I have had my beady eye on Lollapalooza as I have never been and in fact I have never attended a festival outside of the U.K.

Some friends of mine did Lollapalooza in 2014 and said it was awesome.  I have also never managed to visit Chicago so Lollapalooza is seriously tempting.

NBC Chicago announced today that the line-up features Radiohead, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, LCD Soundsystem and J. Cole with support from the likes of Lana Del Rey, Future, Ellie Goulding, Jane’s Addiction, Haim, Halsey and even Third Eye Blind:

Billboard reports that this years Lollapalooza takes place  at Grant Park Chicago between 28 and 31 July.   The dates are the only real stumbling block for me.  It would mean having to cancel festivals I have already agreed to cover and that is something I am loath to do.

You can find more information on Lollapalooza on the official website.

The festival is also on facebook and you can follow on Twitter @lollapalooza

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
