2. Bonus Tracks
Bonus Tracks returns for a second year now and we’re very glad to see it. Last year was so much fun and we get the feeling that the good times have only just begun for this new area to the festival.

By all means, there are so many more great areas to check out at Lollapalooza, like Bud Light Seltzer Sessions and the Toyota Music Den allow you to see Lollapalooza artists in a much more intimate way, Tito’s Stardust Experience, and Dunkin’ will now have Lollapalooza fans runnin’ on Dunkin.
