This morning, I received the list of acts that I’ll be photographing at Lollapalooza this year as part of Time Out Chicago’s screaming effort to cover every band and act during the festival.
Some of the acts I’ve got are: B.o.B, M83, The Head and the Heart, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Childish Gambino (Donald Glover’s act), Gary Clark Jr. (badass), Amadou & Mariam, Salva and White Rabbits.
I was hoping that my business partner Bill would get RHCP, but he got Black Sabbath (once in a lifetime opportunity!) and Jack White.
From what I understand, the photography pits can be brutally packed and cut throat, especially with the big acts. So I’ve got to bulk up a little for the big weekend.
Regardless, I’m stoked. This is going to be my first big festival, and I’m going to see so many new acts … how cool is that.
I’m going to do my best to cover the events on my phone. I won’t be taking phone photos in the pit. It’s not allowed. but I’ll be doing what I can to throw images out while I’m working.
So follow me here or on twitter.
