Kali Uchis To Allie X: 10 Stand Out Female Acts At Lollpalooza 2018
With a four-day lineup as sprawling as they come, Lollapalooza 2018 had something for everybody. Let's take a look at 10 notable female acts who delivered memorable sets at Chicago's Grant Park.
Not only performers, but fans of music The Regrettes took time to play and catch other artists; sets at the festival, even tweeting about Brockhampton’s set. The band took to Twitter once again to get fan’s input on their setlist for both their after show and Lollapalooza set. Plus, The Regrettes have style and edge. Their set brought the punk back to Lollapalooza, complimented by their cohesive look: matching Bulls jerseys!
Currently performing as support to Taylor Swift’s reputation stadium tour, Camila Cabello took to social media to express that she still gets nervous about fan turnout at festivals. They showed up in numbers with the crowd stacking blocks long. Cabello’s set contained most of her debut album Camila. She kicked off her set with “Never Be The Same” and proved her pop prowess with her choreography while simultaneously keeping her vocals near perfection.
GRAMMY winner Daya hit the Lollpalooza stage to perform songs from her forthcoming album. The crowd was so massive for her set, it extended to the stage across the way. Daya also made a special guest appearance, singing “Feel Good” and performing the remix of her GRAMMY-winning song “Don’t Let Me Down” during Illenium’s set to end an epic Lollapalooza.
GRAMMY nominee Kali Uchis hit the stage right as the afternoon sun started to heat up the park. Uchis donned fringe pants and, on top of her dancing, found the energy to belt out her hits. A stand out moment came during “Gotta Get Up,” which festival-goers rejoiced, and online live streamers commented on with much adoration.
Grace Weber is a hidden gem that deserves to be heard. She brought out special guest Nico Segal on the BMI stage and even took time out of her day to create some art on-site at the festival.
A self-taught writer, producer and performer, Allie X is taking the world by storm with her brand of alternative-pop. Her Lolla set list included songs she’s been releasing monthly from her upcoming album, Super Sunset.
With roots in not only pop music but country, electronic, and rap, Bebe Rexha is beyond a triple threat when it comes to music. Rexha’s Lollapalooza set fit all of her hits along with her new tunes. She also took the time to not only meet fans but bring a lucky one on stage. Rexha later expressed that it was her “best show yet”.
Pairing stunning visuals with enormous energy, Terror Jr took over the Bud Light stage, and their after show sold out with fans still eagerly waiting in line to purchase tickets. Frontwoman Lisa Terror punctuated the set by bringing out-of-this-world vocals from Bop City.
Future stars-in-the-making, Pale Waves bring pop-rock to a whole new level. The band toured as support for The 1975 prior to their festival set to a beyond-thrilled crowd. The quartet bend genres and have a special ability to pull people into their music.
This bluesy rock sisters-duo impressed more than a handful of passers-by during their set. Larkin Poe's Lollpalaooza takeover was kicked off by an after party supporting Tyler Childers the night before to a sold-out crowd.
