Lollapalooza Countdown: Mega Mixtape

Exciting news folks! The Lollapalooza schedule came out today.  Time for me to start figuring out how to see as many bands as possible.  In honor of this joyous occasion, I have decided to make a Lolla mixtape.  Well at this size, with over 50 songs, it’s more of a playlist, but it will still do the job.

I wanted to make this one a little different than most mixes. Instead of a “best of” this is more of a discovery mix. Don’t worry (be happy) if you notice that when you cross-reference with the Lolla lineup, your favorite bands aren’t on this mix. That’s because the main goal of this little project was for me to acclimate myself to some of the bands with whom I was either unfamiliar or had never really given a chance.  That’s why there’s Coldplay in the mix (I’ve always subscribed to this theory), but no Two Door Cinema Club or Tennis. I also left out some of the mashup artists like Girl Talk and Super Mash Bros. There’s some newer songs and there’s some older songs, but it’s still all good like orange soda, so enjoy!
