Like any marathon, there’s the moment when you hit the “fuck it, I’m done” stage. After three days and over 70,000 steps, it’s safe to say we were almost there. But with The XX still ringing in our ears from Saturday night, we tied our laces, and made our way to Grant Park bright and early for none other than Noname.
She was everything we expected, fresh, charming, and absolutely deadly. Her vibes had Chicago bouncing through many tracks off 2016’s Telefone. If you haven’t checked her out, she’s a must listen.
US punk rockers Car Seat Headrest had the mosh pits at the Bud Light Stage moving nice and early. While Charli XCX brought the girl power vibes to the Lake Shore Stage, even covering the Spice Girl original “Wannabe” featuring a guest appearance from Halsey.
Everyone under the age of 20 was there on Sunday for one act. And for some reason, he was on one of the grounds smallest stages. The Tito’s Vodka Stage played host to Lil Yatchy, and shit got a little wild. Kids climbed trees, fences, light poles and even the sound booth for a better view. After our three songs, they even had to create a little escape route for photographers the side stage, which included having to scale a fence. That’s a first. We dub this set most worth of a 2018 main stage. We decided to cool things down a touch after with the soothing beats of Sampha.
Arcade Fire were handed the rights to close Lollapalooza 2017, and they did so with a album spanning set from Funeral to Everything Now. They also capped off the entire evening with a stunning cover of John Lennon’s “Mind Games”.
Over the past four days we really earned our name Sidewalk Hustle, and it was worth every step. Thank you Lollapalooza for having us, we’re stoked for next year.
