I know that a lot of people think this is WAY too early to be starting a list…but I actually started my predictions list earlier last year (you can read the post here). I only recently just started paying attention to rumors and I get the majority of my info from Reddit – as well as guesses that I’ve come up with on my own. I think guessing headliners is a lot trickier compared to being able to place the undercards – since Lollapalooza changed their format to four days in 2016, it’s fairly easy to guess the majority of an undercard if you’re as into music as I am.

For another quick recap, I separated my Lollapalooza 2017 posts by day this year after my Twitter followers voted for me to post them separate compared to one long post reviewing the entire weekend.

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.

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.

Another Lollapalooza is among us this year and if I do say so myself, I am so impressed with the 2017 lineup and even MORE impressed at how spot on my predictions were! (Check out the post here: I had 40 out of 67 artists correct, which equates to about 60% accuracy).
Although I’ve heard a TON of mixed opinions on the strength of this year’s lineup, I have to say that I think it’s fantastic for the same reason I always say it’s great, the undercard! While a number of other music festivals like Boston Calling, Bonnaroo and Coachella have strong lineups this year (despite Coachella taking a major blow after Beyoncé backed out of her headlining spot due to her pregnancy), it’s debatable that none of their lineups are as stacked from top to bottom like Lollapalooza’s (in my opinion).
If you have a 1-day pass, multiple one days, or even 4-day pass to Lolla this year and are looking to find some artists to check out, continue to read. I compiled this list after listening to every single person on the lineup (yes I am obsessive) and found some gems to take a listen to. I can definitely state with 100% confidence that I’m going to have a full weekend with a ton of conflicts to sift through.
Below are a few of the MANY artists I would love to see this year at Lolla: some are musicians I have liked before the lineup announcement and some are some gems I discovered while digging through the ridiculously overwhelming lineup.
