The BMI 2010 Lollapalooza stage offered an explosive three-day lineup of performances by 16 must-see, hear-it-first acts. Held August 6-8 at Grant Park’s Hutchinson Field in Chicago, BMI stage performances kicked off at 11:15 a.m. each day, setting the pace and ultimately, hosting the most memorable moment at the mammoth music festival: During a blazing performance by Semi Precious Weapons, surprise guest and past BMI/Lollapalooza stage performer Lady Gaga jumped on (and thrillingly off) stage.

With Lake Michigan as the bucolic backdrop, the BMI stage emitted disco-dunked sounds, acoustic balladry, and pop-rock rhapsodies from a slew of singer/songwriting acts. Performers on the BMI/Lollapalooza stage included British ingénue Neon Hitch, megaphone toting My Dear Disco, and mellifluous crooner Dan Black.
