Disappointment after disappointment this year’s Lollapalooza 2017 has started off on the wrong foot with fans, artists, and even our own staff. The national weather service warned of approaching storms and led Lollapalooza organizers to evacuate festival-goers from the event. The Temples joke with the crowd saying “We might be the last act today”, early afternoon.
Despite light rains, hundreds of thousands of fans from around the world kept at it but rain wasn’t the only bump on the road. Liam Gallagher who was to perform for an hour walked off stage after only 20 minutes and crushed the spirits of many that drove for hours and fans that waited for months to see him.

Our staff was pulled from the event after an incident within the press area due to our people trying to find shelter.
