Live shows and festivals around the world had to be canceled, One of the fallen soldiers was the Lollapalooza, but they came up with a great idea to bring us music in these complex times that we have to face..
As you will remember, this 2020 could not put together the party at Grant Park in Chicago. However, the organizers of one of the most important festivals in the world did not leave us empty-handed, They put together a virtual edition to relive some legendary performances and check out some artists playing exclusive sets for this unique event.
The Lollapalooza was raffled because it gave us a chance to see fragments of the spectacular shows of Paul McCartney, The Cure, Metallica, The Weeknd, Lorde, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Glary Clark Jr., Lorde, Tyler, The Creator, Portugal. The Man, A $ AP Rocky and more. And the truth is that despite the fact that they were performances from the past, as they say out there, remembering is to live again, did you soon get nostalgic for concerts and festivals?

Arcade Fire – 2010
A decade ago, Arcade Fire released one of the most important works of his career –And for which they won the Grammy for best album of the year in 2011–. At that time the Canadian band went up to the main stage of Lollapalooza to play this album and some classics of Funeral and Neon Bible with all that vibe that characterizes them live, even they dedicated “Crown Of Love” to The National. Definitely this was one of the most epic performances seen at the 2010 edition of the festival.
OutKast – 2014
