Whole Lolla Love! Where to Party this Weekend After Lollapalooza 2012

Summer in Chicago is all about Lollapalooza. The two months leading up to this weekend are just a warm-up. In that time, we’ve been to Pitchfork, about a million street fests, and hit up all the free concerts in Millennium Park we can handle. Now it’s time to show off the hipster sway we’ve been practicing and flaunt the festival fashion we’ve been prepping since…last August. But, the fest isn’t the only place that’s popping off. All over the city, you can experience a little piece of  Grant Park at any of the hundred FREE events going on. So, even if you couldn’t snag a 3-day pass, you can still get wild, Lolla style.

Now through – Monday, August 6th

Don’t miss your favorite band waiting in line for merch this weekend. Get your offical lolla duds before the big event at the first-ever LollaShop. Now through Monday at the Thompson Hotel Lounge, the pop-up shop offers official merch to ticket and non-ticket holders. The LollaShop
will offer great merch like the official Lollapalooza T-shirt provided by Gap, as well as pieces by retail partners including Sony, Baggu, Goorin Bros., Rad + Refined, JammyPack and Threadless. The shop is open Monday – Saturday: 11 a.m. – 8 p.m.; Sunday: 12 p.m. – 7 p.m (Festival Days,
August 3-5: 10 a.m. – 11 p.m).

August 2nd

GUESS Eyewear presents The Knocks
To celebrate the beginning of the Lolla weekend, stop in GUESS’s Chicago store (605 N. Michigan) from 6-8PM this Thursday. The Knocks will be spinning their newest tracks and attendees can get the code to download the Shades of Summer Playlist with any purchase of GUESS Eyewear. That means buying some new fest-worthy sunnies also gets you new and exclusive songs by The Hood Internet, The Knocks, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Vacationer and Penguin Prison. Sounds like a deal to me.
