Friday night my favorite part was seeing Coldplay. My favorite picks for Saturday was seeing My Morning Jacket for a few songs and then Eminiem. (they were playing at the same time) Sunday's highlights were seeing Damien Marley and Deadmau5. Sunday was cut short by the rain and plain exhaustion from being there for 3 days. We got stuck in the rain for about 40 minutes of a downpour. We finally dried off enough for about an hour and a half and then then the rain expectantly came again. It actually added a lot to the event and gave us even more to see as far as people watching goes. The mud was unreal, Grant Park was transformed into a giant puddle. It's a miracle Jason or I didn't fall, it was extremely slippery.
Through the weekend, I created a list as I was there for the three days that I was going to share of all the crazy things we saw, but looking at the list now, nothing can quite explain the experience that Lolla is, which is what has kept us going back each year. If you haven't ever been and are in Chicago when Lolla is here, I would definitely add it to your list of things to do. Like I keep saying, it is an experience in itself; it's a bonus if you get to see bands you love!
Not even through the gates and this is in front of me...Lolla is people watching at it's finest :)
