For the past several summers, the first weekend in August has meant something special for the city of Chicago. Lollapalooza 2011 took place last weekend over the 115 acres of land just off of Lake Michigan called Grant Park. Thousands upon thousands of concert-goers flooded the Windy City to rock out with over 130 of their favorite bands and artists.
This year the head-liners consisted of Eminem, Foo Fighters, Deadmau5, Coldplay, and Muse. A lot of attention was also given to Perry’s DJ stage. One of the highlights of the weekend was Afrojake who absolutely killed it Friday night with his set.
Lollapalooza spans the entire weekend rain or shine. This year the fans dredged through the rain, mud, and blistering sun to escape the normal stadium style concerts that most are accustomed too. I went with a big group of my friends in which all of the guys own a pair of Helos. Our shorts couldn’t have been more helpful for weathering the storm of this epic weekend! It was a group consensus that our legs were remained un-chaffed, our “hot-zones” cooled, and our regular shorts dry (until the monsoon-like rains showed up). I have been trying out my Helos for just about any activity that I can think of lately and this was one that I will certainly not overlook in the future.
I’m really looking to next year’s Lolla weekend am throwing out these suggestions for everyone:
