Lollapalooza Thu Jul 29 2010
If you have an iPhone and you're headed to the musical smorgasbord in Grant Park next weekend, the Lollapalooza App is a must have. It's more than just a hand held map and schedule with artist descriptions (which you can add your own notes to), it's actually kind of ridiculous all the things you can do with it.
- Tweet and update your Facebook status (with pictures!) directly from the app with their pre-filled templates.
- That Slacker music player you've been listening to all summer on Lolla's homepage? You can stream it on your phone. And if you hear an artist you like, you can add it to your personalized schedule right there.
- If you want to go but you don't have tickets yet, you can actually purchase tickets through the app! Out-of-towners can even purchase travel packages.
- Plus, most importantly, it has a virtual lighter for those emotional moments during the headliners. (I probably could have just said that and you would have been convinced...)
Did I mention it's free? Get it early, play around with it, sync your accounts and you'll be all ready to go come 11am next Friday. It'll be a great resource at the fest, assuming you have cell service. Fingers crossed!
