We can't believe it either—the eleventh edition of Lollapalooza in Grant Park is on the horizon, slated for July 31–August 2, 2015. Last year, Chicago's largest summer music festival delivered a rather heavy lineup of headliners—Eminem, Kings of Leon, Skrillex and Arctic Monkeys—not to mention copious amounts of rain and mud. But this megaconcert runs much deeper than the headliners. It is a smörgåsbord. There's something for everyone, and plenty of opportunity to dance your ass off at Perry's Stage. Not to mention rather damn good burgers. Here's everything you need to know about the year's biggest music event—and wild photos from the previous edition.
