MUSIC
Radiohead:
The beloved & groundbreaking alternative rock band from England has been a crowd favorite since 1985. You won’t want to miss their appearance at Lolla where they’re sure to wow with classics like “Creep” and “Fake Plastic Trees”.

Leon Bridges: The R&B you NEED. The singer & songwriter from Texas got his start in 2015 with the release of song “Coming Home”.  His performance is sure to provide your daily dose of 50’s & 60’s soul, a sound that never goes out of style. We recommend “River” and “Better Man”.

Silversun Pickups: This Los Angeles bred indie rock band formed combines the influence of The Flaming Lips and Sonic Youth for their catchy, dream pop roots. If you’re not familiar with their sound, check them out NOW starting with “Bloody Mary” and “All The Go Inbetweens”.

Don't miss Silversun Pickups at Lolla25.

LCD Soundsystem: If you haven’t yet heard of this unique electronic rock group Led by James Murphy, we need to change that. The group has done nothing but amaze us since they formed in Brooklyn in 2002. Once you’re hooked on their fusion of dance-punk & electronica, you won’t be able to stop listening. Our faves are “Daft Punk Is Playing At My House” and “I Can Change”.

Mac Miller: Now, that’s a rap. Pittsburgh born and raised Malcom James McCormick, known to fans as Mac Miller, rose to fame with the release of his debut studio album “Blue Slide Park”. His smooth rhymes will make you wonder how he makes spitting verses seem so effortless. Listen to “100 Grandkids” and “Another Night” to hear the best Mac has to offer.

Mac Miller will take the stage at Lolla25.
