The second day of Lollapalooza 2014 kept the momentum from day one rolling thanks to killer performances by The Temper Trap, Fitz & the Tantrums, Outkast and many more.
In addition, we got to attend a private DJ set at the Samsung Galaxy tent where Chromeo performed. Be sure to check out our video footage of their performance as well as a sit-down interview with both Dave 1 and P-Thugg. The talented duo discussed the death of disco and their cross-genre approach to music. You don’t want to miss it.
Manchester Orchestra did a great job later on in the day, but the band would have really benefited from having a nighttime show. Still, they totally managed to rock it while the sun was still shining. Sadly, however, the same can’t be said for Foster the People, who put on a rather disappointing performance.
Following that was Outkast, a group that has really hit its stride, providing an unforgettable performance that easily ranks up there as one of the best of the entire festival. Outkast is well into their festival-headlining tour, and despite playing the roughly same set they did at previous festivals we’ve seen them at this year, they delivered their best performance yet, crushing their main stage headlining slot with a 90 minute blast of endless hits. From the opening bars of “B.O.B.” all the way through the closing “Whole World,” the entire south end of Grant Park was a churning dance party celebration.
