Playlist Feature
Lollapalooza Sampler
In the '90s, Lollapalooza redefined the summer music festival for a new generation of fans. Founded by Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell in 1991, the annual festival took alternative rock on the road and hosted everyone from The Smashing Pumpkins to Ice Cube. Following a hiatus and a couple false re-starts, Lollapalooza came back in 2005 as a stationary, weekend-long festival in Chicago's Grant Park, returning every year since.

Watch this year’s Lollapalooza LIVE at http://www.youtube.com/lollapalooza. This year's lineup features at least a few names from the festival's heyday years—most notably enduring funk-rockers Red Hot Chili Peppers—but in keeping with the fest's original spirit, Lollapalooza 2012 largely celebrates the sounds of right now: M83's epic synth rock and tUnE-yArDs' neo-tribal ruckus, Bassnectar and SBTRKT's differing takes on dubstep, The Tallest Man on Earth's Swedish-accented alt-country, Michael Kiwanuka's arresting folk blues and Sigur Ros' aching instrumental rock. In between, the playlist will give you plenty of chill electropop (Washed Out, Neon Indian), indie rock (Twin Shadow, Bear in Heaven) and even some retro soul (Aloe Blacc). Dive in and enjoy this handy primer for one of alternative rock's finest festivals.
