From Kings of Leon to Spoon, Arctic Monkeys, Interpol, and even a reunited Outkast, Premier Guitar brings you a look at Lollapalooza 2014.
Broken Bells’ Dan Elkan
The venerable sideman has performed with Norah Jones, Team Sleep, Zach Hill, Kim Deal and most recently, Broken Bells as a multi-instrumentalist who bounces back and forth from bassâ??a vintage Vox V236 Pantherâ??and guitarâ??a early â??60s Silvertone 1423 Jupiterâ??to match the bandâ??s doo-wop, classic rock â??nâ?? roll feel.
This year marks Lollapalooza’s 10th year as a destination festival—its 18th overall—in Chicago’s beautiful Grant Park alongside Lake Michigan. Since its inception, Lolla has tried to serve all music fans with a healthy dose of rock, metal, punk, pop, dance, comedy, and hip hop acts. This year was no different with sets from Outkast, Eminem, Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, Interpol, AFI, Cage the Elephant, and hundreds more. Premier Guitar was onsite for all three days and here are just some of the guitar-centric highlights from the event.
