Jamie D’s Lolla 2010 preview

August 5th, 2010 by Jamie D

(Sorry, had to be specific since I know Giselle is going to through hers up and people are going to be all confused and ish.)

For the past 5 years I’ve called Grant Park home for 3 days in early August. It’s been an awesome experience in it’s own unique way each year and I fear for the days when I won’t be able to attend this festival. Things certainly have changed from my first year in 2006 when I saw maybe 5 acts total and they all weren’t before 6:00, now seeing 5 acts in one day is commonplace. You really got to hand it to Perry Farrell for taking a traveling party tour from the 90’s, making it a one weekend festival, putting it in Chicago and turning it into one of the 3 biggest summer music festivals. This year is slated to be the biggest Lolla yet, figuratively and literally (no really, check out the map) and I can almost-no, I can for sure guarantee it will be one for the record books. Now here’s the shows you will find me at.

Friday

Wavves or BBU

Kidz in the Hall
