Summer in Chicago has rolled back in with a 90 degree smile and that means the city is gearing up for legendary Lollapalooza 2024.

Buy tickets here!

As expected, the lineup boasts huge names like Blink-182, Megan Thee Stallion, Hozier, The Killers, and Future. Let us not forget, though, that the best part of arriving early to a festival like this is discovering new music from the afternoon sets! We’ve got five artists (and their set times) for you to check out and hope you’ll make room in your day to support some of the smaller artists. Hit the bottom of the page to listen to our favorite picks from them.

  1. Fleshwater 
  Thursday – 1:45 PM @ Tito’s Stage

For the fans 0f both hardcore, shoe gaze AND nu metal, Fleshwater dropped their latest “gazey” record Sounds of Grieving in December 2023 but their first album We’re Not Here to Be Loved has a more fast-paced sound. Their a great combination of gentle energy to get your day started and kick off the weekend.


     2. Militarie Gun

  Friday – 2 PM @ IHG Hotels Stage

A punk-leaning band, Militarie Gun gives more than a weird spelling to fans. They boast a tough, grittier sound with low-key melodies that you can dance to and ease the summer heat with their upbeat tunes from 2023 record Life Under The Gun. Their latest release Life Under The Sun features Bully…who is also on the Lolla lineup…things to consider.


     3. HANABIE.

Sunday – 1 PM @ T-Mobile Stage

“Have you heard of HANABIE.?” is a phrase I’ve probably said over 10 times since I discovered them a few months back with their latest release “GIRL’S TALK”. The Japanese nu metalcore band is both adorable and intensely talented with their unsuspecting demeanor that quickly makes way for some hard screaming. HANABIE. is a great way to hype up on the last day of the fest!


      4. Knox

Sunday – 1 PM @ Bud light Stage

Indie pop-rock solo artist Knox caught my attention last year with single “Sneakers”, which sounds a lot like what it feels to have a high school crush. He retains this bouncy vibe with every release that makes it impossible not to love him, and frankly I’m unsure why he isn’t a larger artist at this point. Fans of The 1975 or The Band Camino will LOVE him if they don’t already.


      5. Brigitte Calls Me Baby

Saturday – 12:30 PM @ IHG Hotels Stage

Ever feel like you missed the boat on the ’80s rock wave? Worry not as retro rock n’ roll band Brigitte Calls Me Baby bops through your brain with latest single “We Were Never Alive”. I’m telling you, this band brings the high-flying, strawberry skies feeling you’ll be hard pressed to find anywhere else on this bill.
