Lollapalooza hijacks Chicago’s Grant Park this weekend (August 2 to 4), and SPIN has already confirmed the lineup (featuring Nine Inch Nails, the Cure, Kendrick Lamar, Phoenix, Queens of the Stone Age, the National, and many more), detailed the official aftershows, crowned the 30 Must-See Bands, and deduced the festival’s 5 Most Wrenching Set Time Conflicts. Now, we have one more big announcement: SPIN is hosting exclusive live events at the Soundwave Tent in collaboration with Toyota. 

On Saturday, August 3, the Soundwave Tent will host intimate performances by Deap Vally, Pujol, Adventure Club, and Reignwolf, all happening between 3 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. What’s more, other SpinMedia properties (BrooklynVegan, the Hype Machine, and PureVolume) will present a blend of live music, interviews, and DJ sets from a slew of artists. Soundwave guests can expect Disclosure, Jessie Ware, Hot Chip, Ghost B.C., Smith Westerns, Frightened Rabbit, Guards, and others to appear during the three-day showcase. 

The Soundwave Tent will be located inside Grant Park’s rose garden (head over to Lollapalooza’s official website to consult a map of the area). Scroll down for a full schedule of events happening at SpinMedia’s Soundwave Tent. For more coverage on this year’s top festivals, visit
