From Kings of Leon to Spoon, Arctic Monkeys, Interpol, and even a reunited Outkast, Premier Guitar brings you a look at Lollapalooza 2014.
John Butler Trio
The trio’s namesake balanced the workload of guitar duties between his Maton 425/12-string—it’s missing the high-G string because Butler prefers not having it muddle up the mids since it is so high-pitched—and a vintage Silvertone hollowbody. So neither axe feels slighted, both go through his Marshall stack.
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.
