Lollapalooza is on the corner and one of the most stressful parts of going to any festival is choosing the bands that you want to see. This year, with 4 days full of music across 8 stages, this task will become even more difficult. So, if you’re still undecided on which bands you should see and at what time you should arrive to the festival, our list of 20 bands not-to-be missed at Lollapalooza shall help.

Don’t forget to follow our coverage on site from Chicago’s Lollapalooza right here. Also, to get pumped for the festival, check out our video playlist with over 400 hours of music.

20. Milky Chance
A few years later after releasing their debut album ‘Sadnecessary’, this German band suddenly appeared on every Spotify playlist with songs like “Stolen Dance” and “Flashed Junk Mind”. They play on the last day of Lollapalooza and it will be a great way of spending your afternoon at Grant Park.

Where? Bud Light stage

19. Grace Mitchell
Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, this songwriter with just two EPs released so far (‘Design’ and ‘Raceday’) is definitely on our radar. This year she is practically making her debut at big festivals and believe me when I say that this is the time to see a rising artist before changing to bigger venues.
When? Sunday, August 6 (12:15pm)
Where? Tito’s stage

18. Kaleo
One of the best bands that have come out of Iceland in the last decade. Besides their music, they are famous for filming their music videos in strange and dangerous scenarios, like the inside of a volcano.

17. A R I Z O N A
Earlier this month, A R I Z O N A surpassed more than 500,000 track equivalents in the USA in addition to releasing their debut album ‘Gallery’. Their nostalgic, electronic, indie pop sound is just the perfect way to spend an afternoon at Lolla.

Are you really going to miss a guy who released an entire album of Taylor Swift songs?

13. Mac DeMarco
His three albums, 2 (2012), Salad Days (2014), and This Old Dog (2017), have given Mac DeMarco a closing spot at the Pepsi stage this year in Lollapalooza. His “off-kilter pop” is not to be missed.

12. Royal Blood
Formed in Brighton in 2013, Royal Blood is one of the few new true rock bands that exist. In 2014 they were nominated for the Mercury Prize Album of the Year. They’re on the road to becoming the great next British rock band.
When? Saturday, August 5 (5:15pm)

11.  Cage the Elephant
When Cage the Elephant goes to any festival we cover, they always end up in our list of top band to watch. I’ve seen them before and I don’t get tired of watching them over and over again. I don’t know if their set will be different now that they released ‘Unpeeled’, with more calm versions of their songs. Anyway, we’ll be there waiting for them.
When? Thursday, August 3 (6:30pm)

10. Spoon
With ‘Hot Thoughts’ released earlier this year, they just keep adding great songs to their repertoire.

9. The Head and the Heart
‘Signs of Light’ is their first studio album since 2013’s ‘Let’s Be Still’. It took them time, but it is one of their best records to date. Reason enough not to miss them this weekend.
When? Saturday, August 5 (7:00pm)

8. Mura Masa
This breakthrough artist released his debut album which features an extraordinarily diverse cast-list ranging from Damon Albarn, Christine & The Queens and Charli XCX to A$AP Rocky, Desiigner, Jamie Lidell, A. K. Paul, and more. His music is singularly Mura Masa’s vision of what pop music (and modern British culture) should look like in 2017.
When? Friday, August 4 (4:00pm)
Where? Pepsi stage

7. Run the Jewels
Honestly, I don’t know their songs to well, but last year when I saw them live, I was blown away. I’m not even a big hip hop follower, but Run the Jewels are something else.
When? Friday, August 4 (6:45pm)
Where? Grant Park stage

6. Lorde
It’s not the first time Lorde closes the day at Lollapalooza. The New Zealand singer and song writer is one of the most respected artists nowadays and she sounds even more amazing at her shows.
When?Thursday, August 3 (8:45pm)
Where? Bud Light stage

5. Liam Gallagher
Let’s face it. For now, this is the closest you’ll get to see Oasis. We don’t know how long it will take the Gallagher brothers to reunite. In the meantime, watching Liam Gallagher debut his solo album and of course, playing Oasis songs, should be enough.
When? Thursday, August 3 (4:30pm)
Where? Grant Park stage

4. Justice
With only 3 albums in their career, the French duo have manage to become one of the most respected and influential house, electronic rock creators. Their success began back in 2007 when their “D.A.N.C.E.” pop art video was played everywhere.
When? Sunday, August 6 (8:45pm)

3. The xx
After a long break, The xx came back last year with their excellent album ‘I See You’. These three, young talented people have been releasing fantastic songs since the beginning of their career. No wonder they will be closing the festival on Saturday.

2. Barns Courtney
This guy is crazy, in a good and epic way. Born in England and raised in Seattle, he has opened shows for The Libertines, The Who, and Blur. His EP ‘Hands’ has three pretty excellent songs that were enough for us to put him on our 2nd spot.
When? Sunday, August 6 (1:00pm)

1. Highly Suspect
Highly Suspect have been positively buzzing since their release of their sophomore LP, ‘The Boy Who Died Wolf,’ in November of last year. The album debuted at #1 on the Current Alternative Album and at #2 Rock Album on the Billboard Charts. The Bed-stuy based act have also done a handful of late night TV appearances, racked up millions of streams and have an electric live show not to be missed. These guys were nominated for a Grammy and performed at the pre-show of last year’s event. Their new album is a real come back to alternative rock music. This year, they wont out No. 1 spot.
