Lollapalooza 2007

Tuesday, 29th April 2008 by

Lollapalooza is a multi-genre Music festival held each year in Chicago's downtown Grant Park. The 3-day event draws over 35,000 people each day, and for the 2007 festival the special guest was you, the GSS readers.

We'll start at the entrance, which is marked with large inflated letters that you can just about read from the aerial shot (ground level pictures). Don't worry about paying though - we're Access All Areas!

Let's head south of the entrance, past these pretty star shaped balloons (ground level picture).

Continue south and we arrive at the "AT&T stage", which played host to the likes of Daft Punk and Lupe Fiasco1.

If Daft Punk aren't your bag then let's go all the way north (past the previously featured Clarence Buckingham Fountain) to the "Bud Light Stage", where there's currently a larger turn out. This stage featured The Roots, Snow Patrol and Amy Winehouse, amongst others.

You can explore Lollapalooza 2007 further with a kml image overlay I've created from the official festival map, and complete the festival experience by watching some of the acts on Youtube.

  1. If we knew which day this image was taken then we could hazard a guess who was on-stage. Oddly, the date provided by Google Earth (November 6th 2007) is definitely wrong, as this festival was held August 3rd - 5th 2007. ↩︎
