Lollapalooza 2011 Recap
In the months between the release of Lollapalooza's 2011 lineup, and the festival's 20th anniversary this past weekend, general consensus was that the festival had gone mainstream. The festival's playful title may have felt almost like a smirking misnomer when Living Colour and the Rollins Band were filling out the days. But in recent years it has settled into its name the same way it has settled comfortably in between the skyline and lakefront. So if it's not the cutting edge indie haven on wheels that it once was, chalk it up to the passing of time. Nothing can stay exactly the same and sustain itself for two decades.
