BMI to Blitz Chicago with Wide-Ranging Performances on its Lollapalooza Stage August 3-5

Posted in News on June 27, 2012

BMI is proud to present the performers on its 2012 Lollapalooza stage. Running August 3, 4, & 5 at Grant Park’s Hutchinson Field in Chicago, IL, BMI’s stage will kick off performances at 12:00 p.m. each day, setting the pace at the behemoth music festival.

Festival-goers seeking rising stars and a bucolic respite from the Chicago heat flock to the BMI Lollapalooza stage, known for emitting soul-infected sounds, acoustic balladry, and pop-rock rhapsodies from a slew of singer/songwriting acts. Performers on this year’s BMI stage range from the moody melodies of Ambassadors to the sassy swagger of Dev; the budding rock iconoclasts The Sheepdogs; and the expressiveness of siren Yuna. The lineup will provide a blend of sounds, reflecting Lollapalooza’s wide-ranging approach in offering attendees performances that are unique and remarkable.
