From Kings of Leon to Spoon, Arctic Monkeys, Interpol, and even a reunited Outkast, Premier Guitar brings you a look at Lollapalooza 2014.
Kings of Leon’s Jared Followill
A longtime Gibson user, Jared made the move a few years back from an EB-3 to a Thunderbird (shown here) because the band’s sound guy said it was more present and had clearer highs, but it took some time for him to get comfortable with how the Thunderbird rests on his shoulders and the bass’ longer scale.
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.
