The schedule for Lollapalooza 2017 is here…time to make some tough decisions. Over 170 acts will share 7 stages + Kidzapalooza. First acts begin at 12pm with live music going on until 10pm.

Here are our main conflicts, in no particular order.
- Bink 182 / Crystal Castles / DJ Snake / The Killers
Each of these acts may be pretty different from one another, and as much as I love The Killers, I am also willing to see Blink 182 for the first time. Crystal Castles and DJ Snake are not my favorite but still, they were certainly on my lit.
- Foster the People / Run the Jewels
I’ve seen both bands live and I can guarantee that you will have a blast, even if you don’t know their songs. Last year I saw Run the Jewels without being a fan and believe me, it was incredible.
- Ryan Adams / Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness
As a fan of both artists, this will be a really tough one for me. I prefer Andrew’s music, but I’m sure something interesting will come up at Ryan’s set.
- Lorde / Muse / Peter Robinson
Lorde has grown up so much as an artist in the past few years. It doesn’t surprise me that she is now a closing act along with Muse and Peter Robinson. Certainly another difficult choice to make.
- Wiz Khalifa / Atlas Genius / Cage the Elephant
Atlas Genius may be my favorite choice, but Cage the Elephant are one of the best live bands in America. I’ve seen their shows and it’s an authentic rock concert.
- A R I Z O N A / George Ezra
Even though I’m a bigger fan of George Eztra, A R I Z O N A’s lastest album caught my attention since its release so I really want to watch them live. I guess it will be a decision taken at that moment!
- Chance the Rapper / Mac DeMarco / The xx
The conflict is pretty obvious in this one. Three big names at the same time. Chance the Rapper is headlining many festivals this year, so maybe I can wait a little longer to see him.
- Colony House / Glass Animals / Highly Suspect
Three bands that have been on our radar lately. The latest album from Colony House made them go on their first headline tour this year. Highly Suspect became a Grammy nominated band last year and their new album is impressive.
- Justice / Arcade Fire
Oh no. Justice and Arcade Fire? If I stand in the middle of both stages do you think I can get something from both?
Lollapalooza will take place at Chicago’s Grant Park from August 3-6. VIP packages can still be purchased at the festival’s official site.
