Lollapalooza 2010 Highlights: Day 1
by pieces of moments
The group with which I work has shows on Saturday and Sunday of the festival, but we couldn’t miss the awesome line-ups today (Friday). So after having our final rehearsal and getting some final preparations done, I hit the backstage scene. Here’s some highlights from day one.

One of the Chicago radio stations, Q101, had a hammock area set up. Brilliant idea.

Could you tell us how you really feel about the Lady Gaga show tonight?

Backstage at the Lady Gaga set
One of the great moments at the Gaga show: she invited an old friend on stage to reenact the show they did at Lolla a couple years ago, when no one knew, or cared, who she was.
Lady Gaga’s unbelievably massive production. Such a contrast from the indie band shows I usually attend (duh).
