What a summer it’s been. We had the best weekend of the summer with FYF, we’ve had some of the best shows and album releases of the year, and with Lollapalooza, we had the perfect festival to kick off the end of the summer. I mean, if it was good enough for Malia Obama, it must have been a pretty good event, right?

The sprawling grounds made for the perfect amount of space, even if certain performances were jam packed with fans. The best part of Lollapalooza is it feels like a top tier worldwide festival, which makes sense because it already is one of the best music fests in the world as it expands into other countries and markets.

Lollapalooza really is the best way to end the summer as a world class and top tier music festival with great food, music for everyone, and offers the biggest and best way to celebrate with one of the greatest events of the year. We can’t wait for next year but looking back, it really was the culmination of a wonderful summer of music, events, performances and parties. What a way to close out the summer.
