It’s official, Lollapalooza wristbands are starting to ship! Now seems like a good time to discuss some of the awesome things your wristband can get you, besides access into the festival.
Lollapalooza takes place at Grant Park in Chicago, IL over four days, August 2 - August 5, 2018. Grant Park is right in the heart of the city, so the festival each day is open from 11 am to 10 pm for noise ordinance reasons. As discussed in my previous article, the party doesn’t have to stop at 10 pm for you, as you can check out the Chicago nightlife or one of the Lolla after hours shows!
But let’s talk about wristbands for Lolla. Make sure that once you have it, you activate it, but DO NOT put it on until the day of the event.
Once you’re activated, there’s the option to add Lolla Cashless to your wristband. This is the easiest way to pay for merch, food, and more inside the festival. Basically you tap your wristband to pay! You’ll have a pin you set up as well, so don’t worry, if someone steals your wristband they won’t be able to just make purchases with it.
This cardless payment method is sponsored by Citi card, which of course means they’re offering some added benefits. I’m not a City card member, but my mom is… maybe I’ll ask to register her card to my wristband so I can get some of the Citi card member perks.
Card members who are 21+ get access to the Citi Viewing Deck, which offers a premium view to catch artists performing at the Grand Park Stage. AND each card member can bring one guest to this space too! Which is SUPER cool, so you don’t have to ditch your boyfriend -- or maybe don’t tell him if you want to ditch him, IDK your life.
The viewing deck is also cleared after each performance, so people can’t hang there all day. There is a limited number of people who can get there for each performance, so go early if you want a space for someone specific!
Also, if you register with your Citi card by Aug 1, the first 8,000 people will get $10 to use at the festival instantly! Then after Aug 1, the first 4,000 will get $5! Pretty sweet right!
Halloween is fast approaching, and we all know the best part of this holiday is choosing the ultimate costumes! As ravers, we are no strangers to dressing up, and Halloween is an awesome time to show off our style skills. There are so many directions you can go in when deciding what to be for Halloween, so we’re giving you some suggestions to make your decision a little easier.
Out Of This World
Extraterrestrial themes are huge in the rave world, and Halloween is the best excuse to dress up as a sexy alien or a house-loving astronaut. There are also a ton of opportunities for couples and group costumes that fit this theme! Build an alien squad with your friends in the Cosmic Chaos Alien Costume and the Solstice Kiss Holo Set, or explore the unknown in matching astronaut suits. Add some glitter, and you will surely have an out-of-this-world Halloween experience!
Embrace Your Wild Side
Feeling wild this spooky season? Cowgirl costumes are super cute and perfect for any Halloween event. Embrace your wild side and let loose with a cowboy hat and your best chaps, or make it glam!
Certain costumes will never go out of style. Classic costumes come back every year because they are timeless. If you’re feeling scary this Halloween, try a holographic skeleton or a seductive devil costume. If you’re going for a flirtier vibe, you can never go wrong with the Team Techno Cheerleader outfit. This fit is a fun take on the basic cheerleader costume! You can make any of the classics your own with glitter, accessories, and other modern twists.
Have a legendary Halloween dressed as your favorite mythical creature! Fairies, elves and unicorns are not only charming characters, but they are also very trendy right now. These Fractal Fantasy Fairy Wings will transform any outfit into an enchanting fairy ensemble. You could also pair this Rainbow Unicorn Costume with some sparkly fishnets for a dazzling festival look!
Ravers love to dress up year-round. But if there's one thing that we don't get to do often, it's bring the spooky vibes with scary costumes around Halloween! This time of year is the perfect time to show off your spooky side, with costumes that are gory, creepy, or all around terrifying.
No matter what you decide to be this year, you can’t go wrong. As long as you’re feeling like your best self, you’re going to slay this Halloween!
