to start checking out what’s in store for you once you step foot in Grant Park this year! From the palm of your hand, brush up on the musicians performing over the weekend, plan out your lineup and follow along as we capture the Festival from all angles across Grant Park.
And, since who doesn’t love to share something great, with photos, videos, bios and more, there is ample opportunity to share your own Lolla experience with your friends directly from the App itself!
We’re taking the old school paper fold-out to another– level! Not only can you browse the Official Lolla Schedule by day, but you can also read up on each artist, check out their website, stream music videos and share their page with your friends — all with one tap!
Here’s where you can create the framework for your perfect Lolla days and nights. Pick and choose which bands make the cut and then share your hitlist with friends to minimize last-minute delays and re-negotiations. Plus, with SO many awesome musicians taking the stage this year, it might be a little hard to keep them all straight in your head!
Get to know the ins and outs of the park and check out where everything will be located throughout the weekend — aka maximize your time and scope the key locales (Chow Town, Green Street, Kidzapalooza and more) before you walk through the gates. You can also tap on each stage to access that day’s scheduled performances.
Apart from the epic performances and the Festival’s rocking summertime vibe, this added tool could single-handedly make your weekend at Lolla. We all know that coordinating with people in large areas can be difficult to say the least. Well, thankfully with our GroupMe-powered group text functionality, you can now easily corral your crew from right within the Lolla app so that you can get back to what matters most – hanging out with your posse and soaking in the sounds of Lolla 2012.
We’ve gathered all of our need-to-know feeds — Facebook
— and handily put them in one place for your browsing convenience. Zoom from one social network to the next as you check out what people are seeing and saying across the park. And if you want to really personalize your share tactics, check out the new Postcard on the Run
feature. Just snap a pic, choose your recipient and send a Lolla-fied digital postcard to a friend missing out on the Fest.
Overall, this is the tab you’ll want to watch all weekend for updates from the Lolla staff about surprise pop-up events, flash giveaways and other surprises we may have up our sleeve…
