On Sunday afternoon, Lollapalooza 2023 Day 4began under cloudy skies. As the hours went by in Grant Park, the drizzle turned into rain, then back into the drizzle, then back into the rain. As a safety measure, video screens all over the park showed directions on how to leave.
On Sunday, the last day of the festival, Lana del Ray, Louis the Child, Louis the Child, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and L'Imperatrice, a French pop-disco powerhouse, will be the headliners.
The 2023 Lollapalooza is over. On the last day of the event, which was the fourth, it continued to rain in Grant Park in Chicago. By the time the main act took the stage, the bad weather had stopped, but there were still a lot of puddles and slippery mud everywhere. Lollapalooza wouldn't have been complete without a performance by Chance the Rapper, who is from Chicago. During Joey Bada$$'s set earlier on Sunday night, he did just that, playing "No Problem" and "The Highs & the Lows." A few hours later, the event ended with headliners Red Hot Chili Peppers and Lana Del Rey. Rina Sawayama and more were also great parts of the day.
Red Hot Chili Peppers are the band that most people think of when they think of a concert band. The Red Hot Chili Peppers, who always play at Lollapalooza, were the main act on the T Mobile stage. This brought a lot of people from all over the country to the southern end of Grant Park. This year, the famous Los Angeles band closed the festival as the legacy rock act, following in the footsteps of Green Day (2022) and Foo Fighters (2021), who did the same thing in recent years. After going to Lollapalooza for the first time in 1992, the band played a show on Sunday night. Red Hot Chili Peppers have also been the main act at Lollapalooza in Argentina and Brazil, as well as in 2006, 2012, and 2016.
Lana Del Rey started her set looking like a bride in a short white Priscilla dress with a long train. By the end, the oversize fabric had turned into a bedsheet and was actually carrying her away. If her music wasn't so good, it would be really funny, but there's no denying that the star has made some great songs over the course of her nine amazing albums, with the pomp and circumstance meeting the pop noir grandeur. The way Del Rey sang "Blue Jeans" with so much passion was overwhelming, and the live dancer dancing to "Ultraviolence" was so beautiful that it made me cry. "Pretty When You Cry" was easy to get into a trance with because Del Rey took her time with each line and movement.
About a week before Lollapalooza 2023 started, the festival revealed that Alvvays would play instead of the band Gabriels. This was good newsfor Chicago fans since Alvvays had just played at the Pitchfork Music Festival a couple of weekends earlier. On Sunday at Lolla, the Canadian fill-ins were a great addition to the lineup. Songs like "Pharmacist," "Very Online Guy," and "Velveteen" from their new album Blue Rev, which came out in 2022 and was their first since 2017, added a nice indie-pop sparkle to an otherwise rainy and gloomy day.
Chicago is one of the most beautiful cities I've ever seen.- Lil Yachty
Lil Yachty told the crowd waiting for him at the Bud Light stage at least 40 minutes before he got there. Fans sang along to "Broccoli" until the last line when Yachty dropped the mic and let the crowd finish the song. The rapper is 25 years old and has been an important part of rap since 2015 when he released "One Night." Fans danced and sang along to this song, too. Fans calmed down during the last part of Lil Yachty's set when he sang "Drive ME crazy!" They enjoyed how emotional and passionate he was.
After starting off with "Temptation" and "For My People" from All-American Bada$$, Joey Bada$$ played a few songs from his new record 2000, which is a spiritual sequel to his first mixtape 1999. "We're reminiscing like it's all we know," he rapped on "Where I Belong." Based on how people reacted to the variety of songs he played, a little bit of nostalgia at a music event was a good idea. His current take on hip-hop from the 1990s, which was emphasized by his outfit of a big white shirt over extra-slouchy pants, was a nice change from most of the other acts. At one point, his set made pogoers so happy that they formed two different mosh pits. For his 2017 song "Love Is Only a Feeling," which he dedicated to "all the lovers," thousands of hands curled into hearts and bounced in the air.
Rina Sawayama, the Japanese-British performer's set was so exciting that it demanded to be the main event. It was one of the best uses of space, time, and resources the fans saw this weekend. There were four costume changes, stylized choreography, dance stories told through gestures and unique and quick set changes. For example, the bare-bones platform was turned into a wrestling ring, then a dressing room, then a rodeo.
On the last day of Lollapalooza, Sunday, the area near the stages where Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lana Del Rey, and Lil Yachty played was packed with people. Light rain continued to fall on Sunday, keeping the mud on the grounds living and sticking to fans' shoes and clothes, but they didn't seem to mind. Saturday, it rained, which made the fest grounds wet.
