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”.

Leon Bridges is sure to be a fan favorite at Lollapalooza in Chicago, IL.

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.

Festival Faves with Color Me Courtney

Whether you go all out for festival season or give it a subtle nod, our festival faves are sure to bring out your inner boho babe.

We asked our girl Color Me Courtney to show us what she would wear to a festival. Between the crochet, destroyed denim and pop of color, it’s safe to say that we’re in festival heaven.

Festival Faves with Color Me Courtney

What Inspired Courtney’s Look:
“For this festival-esqe look I turned to Aerie & American Eagle, because they have a little bit of that boho vibe without being too bananas about it. When I needed festival fashion, they were the perfect partner for creating this chillaaxxeddd look – that’s perfect for Coachella or just somewhere coastal (ps is it summer yet?).”

Festival Faves with Color Me Courtney

“A girly-lacey bikini in a fun pop of color, prevented me from wearing a bra (score) while providing a little color pop when layered under a flowy poncho! I paired it with basic distressed denim shorts, an easy basic and must have for Spring/summer before adding studded sandals, a crocheted backpack and black sunnies. Oh and so you could still recognize me, I added a bright orange lip ;)”

How to Style the Hi-Rise Festival Shortie with Thetique

Heading to spring break? Gearing up for festival season? Grab a pair of Hi-Rise Festival Shorties and thank us later. No, seriously. Between it’s soft cotton denim, destroyed details and frayed hem, you’ll be in hi-rise heaven.

Tiana from the Thetique blog puts a classic twist on these edgy shorts by adding stripes and a timeless denim jacket below.

You can find her blogging about life, style, and everyday musings at Thetique, a space rooted in the belief that there is beauty in everything.

How to Style the Hi-Rise Festival Shortie with Thetique What Inspired Tiana’s Look:
“Recently, I’ve been leaning more toward timeless outfits-ones you’ll look back on ten years down the road and think, “Man, I had style,” instead of “What was I thinking?” And because I believe that these kinds of looks are best dressed with a bit of edge, the Hi-Rise Festival Shorties make for the perfect piece to have in your closet long-term. They’re great with just about everything. I decided to pair them with a simple stripe, great wash of denim and a wide-brimmed hat to put together a look that could be easily recreated by anyone looking for a relaxed, yet stylish outfit created solely from the pieces in their closet.”
