BMI to Provide Springboard to Superstardom at its Lollapalooza Stage August 5-7

Posted in News on July 28, 2011

BMI is proud to present the performers on its 2011 Lollapalooza stage. Running August 5, 6, and 7 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 mammoth music festival.

Festival-goers seeking an eclectic lineup and a bucolic respite from the Chicago heat flock to the BMI Lollapalooza stage, known for emitting disco-dunked sounds, acoustic balladry, and pop-rock rhapsodies from a slew of singer/songwriting acts. Performers on this year’s BMI stage range from the swaggering attitude of The Pretty Reckless to the Aussie exports Boy & Bear; the genre-jumping of The Chain Gang of 1974; and the expressiveness of siren Christina Perri. The lineup will provide a blend of sounds, reflecting Lollapalooza’s wide-ranging approach in offering attendees performances that are unique and remarkable.
