Now more than ever, Lollapalooza is mélange of different fashion decisions to accompany the varied musical offerings crammed together throughout Chicago's Grant Park. When EDM butts up against metal, alt-country, and whatever the hell you'd call Die Antwoord, there's really no wrong way to dress. Still, too many attendees tend to stick to boring, functional attire to them through the weekend. None of those folks are rewarded here.


Here are ten examples of really letting your clothing do the talking, which we did our best to interpret.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
