AU ABROAD

Lollapalooza Aftershows will see DMA's join TV on the Radio, Sheppard join Marina and the Diamonds and more!

With tickets flying out the door for the 2015 installment of the iconic Lollapalooza festival in Chicago next month, organisers have announced a run of late night "Aftershows" that will take place in the leadup to the festival, and each night of the event. Many of these shows have already sold out, but these shows will give fans more intimate environments to experience their favourite bands, after they leave Grant Park each night - or even before they get there!

There are plenty of Australians amongst the pack, with What So Not headlining his own show on Thursday night at The Mid, Angus & Julia Stone headlining a show with Shakey Graves on Saturday night. Pop sensation Sheppard, meanwhile, will support Marina and the Diamonds, DMA's will join TV on the Radio (both shows are already sold out) and Sydney artist Spookyland will join Lord Huron. A shout out to our New Zealand friends BROODS who will be supporting Tove Lo in an already sold out show on Thursday night, too!
