Our 25th Anniversary Recap

This year we celebrated #Lolla’s 25th Anniversary with Radiohead, LCD Soundsystem, Red Hot Chili Peppers and many more in Chicago’s beautiful Grant Park. We couldn’t have asked for a better birthday party. We laughed, we cried, we snapchatted, we ate lobster corndogs – we truly did it all. Check out the recap video and read on below to see some of our favorite #Lolla moments from this weekend!

We couldn’t wait to get back to Chicago to celebrate our 25th Anniversary with all of our friends…
