Lollapalooza may be over, but we’re still flying on the residual excitement of the weekend. And we’re not just talking about the headliners. Tucked away in a tree-lined spot was the Toyota Soundwave tent, where SPIN, Brooklyn Vegan, PureVolume and Hype Machin had a killer roster of talent taking a break from the massive festival crowds and huge stages to play intimate acoustic sets, take beautiful portraits, and get a little more up close and personal than your typical Lolla experience. With Adventure Club, Reignwolf, and Pujol taking the stage, it was a highlight of our totally packed weekend. Festival season is far from over, and Soundwave will be hitting Outside Lands, Bumbershoot, and Voodoo in the coming months, so stay tuned for even more excitement before the summer’s end.
