Lollapalooza Weekend in Photos

By Olivia Leigh in Arts & Entertainment on Aug 6, 2007 3:30PM

This writer-photographer had never been to Lollapalooza and came with mixed expectations. Fortunately, we seemed to choose our acts correctly, and between the tight sets from The Hold Steady and Muse on Saturday and the intense energy offered up by Iggy and the Stooges and Cafe Tacuba on Sunday, we left the weekend without any disappointments. Chicagoist was fortunate enough to secure a few coveted photo passes, allowing us access to the photo pits where we were alternately met with disdain and love by the crowds. Watch our handy little slideshow to check out some of our favorite pictures of some of the bands we saw over the weekend, along with a few shots of the spirited crowd.

Bands shown (more or less in order): The Hold Steady, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Spoon, Muse, Amy Winehouse, Paolo Nutini, Iggy and the Stooges, Peter, Bjorn and John, Bound Stems, Modest Mouse, and Cafe Tacuba.
