Lollapalooza 2017 Hits & Misses: Thursday

style icon-6

Another Lollapalooza has come and gone, and I hate to say that as much as I love this festival and tell everyone I know that it’s my favorite days of the year, ever year, I have to admit that I was relieved for it to a come to a close this year.

It wasn’t because the festival didn’t deliver as it usually does, or that I didn’t enjoy myself per usual, but because of how exhausted a four day music festival truly is. This is my first year attending Lollapalooza while simultaneously working a full time job and ladies and gentlemen, adulting is hard. I am nowhere near as used to staying up until 2 or 3 am during the summer like I used to – and the long days of standing, walking, and drinking (for some of us) definitely took a toll on me this year.

Add These Female Musicians to Your Playlist Now

Recently, I have been discovering a wide variety of female musicians who have been viral sensations, and I was so impressed with their skills and artistry that I knew I had to write a blog post about it. It’s always empowering for me to see female musicians, especially since so many of the ones I am featuring in this post are close to my age. Although I show no signs of personally having a successful singing career, it’s always nice to see other female succeeding in music and it’s something that I will forever be passionate about. 

Below are five female musicians that I see shaping the future of pop music for years to come. I hope you enjoy this read and I hope I get you inspired to check them out on your own!

One of my favorite things about summer is all the new, fun, exciting jams that are perfect for the warm weather. I’ve had a lot of luck this time around with having a really easy time finding new music that I like to make this playlist grow into something huge!

I’ve also posted my summer playlists two years in a row (this being the third), so this is a fun tradition for me. Click these links to check out my 2015 and 2016 playlists.

MAMBY ON THE BEACH

REVIEW.png

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to go to Mamby On the Beach, a music festival in Chicago that is just three years old. I had not gone in previous years, although artists appearing on the lineups like LANY, Bishop Briggs, Chet Faker, Phantogram, Betty Who and Gallant (to name a few) caught my interest in years past. I decided to go this year on a whim because once my best friend and I realized that Local Natives was on the lineup, we knew we had to go.
