Review: Oldies and newbies at Lollapalooza 2014

Review: Oldies and newbies at Lollapalooza 2014

Nostalgia tried to crash the big weekend party in Grant Park. Five of the six headliners had played Lollapalooza before, and two of the most anticipated sets were by hip-hop artists — Eminem and OutKast — whose greatest hits are a decade old or more.

What was once cutting edge eventually becomes part of our sentimental past. But the newcomers kept showing up, and the talk of the weekend in which more than 130 artists performed on eight stages over three days was not a set by one of the veterans, but by a 17-year-old singer-songwriter out of New Zealand. Lorde proved she could rule a big stage in front of a huge audience with poise, command and, best of all, songs.
