Rain at Lollapalooza is nothing shocking. It's just a fact of life with music festivals, which mostly take place atop baseball fields: There is going to be mud (as you can see here in 2012). On day three of Lollapalooza 2014, it rained. And rained and rained and rained. By my count, there were at least four downpours, at 1pm, 3pm, 5pm and 6pm. It was some strait up Orlando BS.

Some of us took shelter in the trees or cowered under umbrellas with the disposition of wet cats. Some of us (and even some of those ubiquitous celebrity signs) opened their arms to the skies and treated Sunday like a water park. Or, well, a mud park. Big crowds at Chromeo, Cage the Elephant and, of course, Perry's Stage just kept on ragin' in the slop.
