5 Artists I Can't Wait To See At Lollapalooza This Year

After waiting years to see some of these artists, my dreams are finally coming true.

5 Artists I Can't Wait To See At Lollapalooza This Year

Nothing is better than live music. The feeling of seeing your favorite artists on stage, singing, living, and actually breathing the same air as you is a surreal experience.

Lollapalooza, and other music festivals, gives music lovers the opportunity to see not just one artist, but around ten different artists to get a full day of live music. When I went last year for the Friday show and saw artists such as The Killers, MISSIO, Moose Blood, and Bishop Briggs, I was blown away by the experience and knew I needed to return this year.

I will be attending the Thursday show this year with my three best friends, and there are five artists in particular that I cannot wait to see.

1. Arctic Monkeys

This band has had a constantly evolving sound that fits with the modern alternative music scene. Their latest album “AM” is a masterpiece, and they are returning this summer with a new album after five years. Arctic Monkeys will definitely be a fantastic headliner for this year’s festival.

Favorite songs: “R U Mine?” and “If You Were There, Beware"

2. Billie Eilish

This artist has been on the rise, and I might just be a tad obsessed with her. The sixteen year old singer-songwriter has created songs similar to Marina and the Diamonds and Melanie Martinez in a way that is beyond her years. I’m so excited to see how she delivers her talent to this big of an audience for the first time.

Favorite songs: “ocean eyes” and “COPYCAT”

3. The Wombats

Another band that has had their fair share of stylistic differences, The Wombats are no strangers to the Lollapalooza stage. Now that they have been gaining a more mainstream audience and are moving up in the lineup, I’m excited to see how they incorporate some of my older favorites with their newer jams.

Favorite songs: “Party in a Forest (Where’s Laura?)” and “Black Flamingo”

4. Franz Ferdinand

Although I haven’t listened to Franz Ferdinand as extensively as some of these other artists, the songs I have listened to I am a huge fan of. Between the older and newer songs, I think this band will reach a wide range of listeners and put on a fantastic show.

Favorite songs: “Take Me Out” and “Do You Want To”

5. All Time Low

After seeing All Time Low last summer at my favorite, smaller venue in St. Louis, I’m super excited to see this band on a festival stage. I own every album this band has released, and I’m looking forward to seeing them again and belting out all of the lyrics with my friends.

Favorite songs: “The Irony of Choking on a Lifesaver” and “Don’t You Go”

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
