, the most awaited annual music festival featuring popular alternative rock, heavy metal, punk rock and hip hop bands, is just around the corner. There is a lot of hype about this year’s celebrations and it is expected that just like before, Lollapalooza will provide a platform to young and emerging singers and musicians to showcase their talents.
Last year, Frank Ocean and Alabama Shakes played at Lollapalooza and later ended up getting Grammy nominations for best new artist and how can we forget a little duo known as Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, who have made it to top charts after debuting at the festival. It is confirmed that Lollapalooza will be revealing some great musicians this year as well, names that might not be very popular or mainstream, but they certainly have the potential to make it big in the industry.
If you’re looking for fresh talents, you must check out performances by the following artists/bands at Lollapalooza 2013.
