Let’s do this again, Chicago!
Lollapalooza 2015 is right around the corner and we’re jumping for joy.
Having attended Lollapalooza for the past 5 years, we have quickly realized that once the Lollapalooza gates have shut, Chicago nightlife is in full throttle. But, we have one after-party that always blows our minds.
So, who throws the best Lollapalooza post-event celebrations? Hard Rock Hotel Chicago, baby.
This year, Hard Rock Hotels & Casinos teams up with Culture Collide to present the “Chicago After Parties” – a series of music-infused post-event celebrations with special performances – at Hard Rock Hotel Chicago.
The Culture Collide Chicago After Parties Series will roll out the red carpet on the nights of July 31, 2015 and August 1, 2015. Guess who will be giving you updates on how amazing it’s going to be? Celebrity Slice!
“Much like Hard Rock, Culture Collide was founded on the belief that music connects us all and we look forward to curating an experience during Lollapalooza weekend that further showcases both our brand’s biggest passion – music,” says Alan Miller, founder of Culture Collide.
What’s in store this year at Hard Rock Hotel Chicago?
Guests will enjoy food and wine pairings, as well as creative creations by a fully sponsored open bar. Sponsors of the Culture Collide Chicago After Parties Series media partners include: The A.V. Club, as well as Bandsintown, Fender, Shellback Caribbean Rum, E&J and Busy Beaver Button Co., which will be gifting partygoers with custom festival buttons.
“The after parties at Hard Rock Hotel Chicago have always been the place to see and be seen during the festival weekend, and this year is certainly no exception,” says Matt Watts, director of music and marketing at Hard Rock Hotels & Casinos.
Hard Rock Hotel Chicago will also serve as a getaway where guests can enjoy a Vinyl DJ Bar in the main lobby from 5-10 p.m. The Vinyl DJ Bar, presented by Blue Microphones, will provide fans with more music and you better believe the DJ will be spinning vinyl and taking song requests.
Are you vinyl-obsessed? Guests will have the opportunity to sift through classic vinyl records and experience firsthand what their favorite tracks sound like through premium Blue Mo-Fi headphones (you know those dance moves are going to go 0 to 100 real quick).
Now, let’s talk about those special guests! This year, TWO of the greatest performers will hit the stage.
“With our 10th and most exciting year yet, we’re looking forward to continue to build upon this annual party and provide music fans with a truly unique and intimate setting to see performances from an icon like Slick Rick; as well as one of the most exciting new bands this year, Bleachers,” says Matt Watts.
On Friday, July 31, Slick Rick will perform with his special guests. Could you imagine who he’ll be bringing with him on stage? He’s a hip-hop legend!
On Saturday, August 1, indie pop band, Bleachers, will tear up the stage. Yeah, we’re already stoked to hear “I Wanna Get Better.”
To be honest, we couldn’t be more excited to attend Hard Rock’s Lollapalooza after-parties this year. The Hard Rock, Culture Collide, and the / zimmerman / agency know exactly what their guests want. They also know how to make a night memorable. Why else would music lovers from all over the world make their way to Hard Rock during Lollapalooza weekend?
We are looking forward to giving you an unforgettable recap of the Hard Rock Hotels & Casinos Unveils the Ultimate Lollapalooza Weekend After Party Series at Hard Rock Hotel Chicago event.
