Rolling Stone will hold Rolling Stone Live: Chicago, its sixth annual day party during Lollapalooza weekend this year with sets by house DJ Hardwell, rapper A$AP Ferg, electro-pop artist MØ and experimental folk-pop duo Lewis Del Mar. The event, presented by Harley-Davidson and vitaminwater, will take place at Studio Paris on 59 West Hubbard Street from noon until 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 30th.
Dutch artist Hardwell, who will be performing at the festival at 8:30 p.m. that day, made an impact on U.S. charts last year with his first album, United We Are. That year, Rolling Stone recognized the way he managed to sustain intensity throughout his Electric Daisy Carnival set in New York, calling the show one of the “best things we saw” at the festival. That same year, the DJ – who has no trouble filling rooms – also attempted the world record for “Biggest Guest List” at a charity event. For the show, in Mumbai, he opened up 75,000 guest list spots for over 125,000 preregistered fans, according to YourEDM, achieving his goal; he also accepted pledges and donations to help thousands of children in India. Expect heavy-hitting sets at both Lollapalooza and the Rolling Stone day party.
Danish singer Mø, who is performing Friday at 3:30 at the festival, also had a breakout year in 2015. Rolling Stone elected her “Best Newcomer” at Bonnaroo that year, when she was still promoting 2014’s No Mythologies to Follow, and she appeared on Iggy Azalea’s “Bet for It” and Major Lazer and DJ Snake’s “Lean On,” the latter of which is one of the most-viewed videos on YouTube (with over a billion plays) that year and one of Rolling Stone’s choices for the 50 Best Songs of 2015. She made an appearance with Major Lazer at Coachella to sing that song this year. This year, she put out an infectious new anthem, “Final Song,” which has already gone gold in her native Denmark. She’ll be touring North America more extensively this fall, making both her Lollapalooza appearance and Rolling Stone day party set summer must-sees.
