The Lollapalooza Yearbook: A Look At Past Performances

There was a time when Lollapalooza was a touring festival, hitting up cities all across the nation. Nowadays it resides in Chicago’s Grant Park, which has turned out to be a lovely venue for the three-day festival. Because Nine Inch Nails is playing at the festival for the first time since the festival found a permanent home, we thought it would be fun to look back all the past performances from this year’s line up. And boy, a lot of them have performed at Lolla over the past five plus years.
