Sure, Lollapalooza has found a home in the Windy City, but with this year’s star-studded lineup and absolutely gorgeous weather, it’s no shock to meet people from all across the country, and all around the world while traipsing the festival grounds. Enjoy the first part of our festival faces gallery, and meet some of our newest pals in Grant Park. PHOTOS AND REPORTING BY STEVE AQUINO, JAMES MONTELEONE, ERICA FUTTERMAN, AND KAREN CHAN
