10 Must See Emerging Acts at Lollapalooza 2017

Much to my dismay, I won’t be seeing any of the acts playing at Lollapalooza 2017. Still, I can continue to live vicariously through each and every lineup announcement. It will kind of be like I’m there just with a heck of a lot less Chicago summer fun.

This lineup includes the unparalleled songstress Lorde, who I still have yet to see, as well as other major talents from my bucket list like The Killers, Blink-182, Phantogram, Justice, Big Sean and more. Long story short – Lolla’s lineup is what festival dreams are made of! (Click to Tweet) I could go on about how much I would love to see Muse, Tove Lo or Arcade Fire again but let’s be real.

I was lucky enough to see them in the first place so no need to be greedy! Anyway, all those acts already get a lot of play and today’s feature is all about the lesser known acts that don’t get nearly as much love. Here you’ll find some names you might know, and some that you probably don’t. There are also a few acts that are worth your time but who I’ve already mentioned and therefore will omit here.  


Summer Music Festival Playlist

A little while ago Nataliya from Style Tomes suggested that I curate a playlist full of underrated acts. I plan on doing just that but first I figured I’d compile all the up and coming featured artists from the 2017 summer festival season. 

If you want to hear what you should be listening to or who you should check out this summer head to Spotify! You’ll find my 2017 festival picks along with my general playlist for the year. 

Now, before you head over to Spotify scroll down to see what emerging artists should be on your radar at Lollapalooza 2017! If you got tickets before they all sold out let me know who you’re excited to see the most this summer! I couldn’t fit all my picks in this post so check out that festival playlist!
