Artist Polaroids From Lollapalooza 2011

Arctic Monkeys

Lollapalooza celebrated its twentieth anniversary in Chicago over the weekend with headline performances by Eminem, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, and Muse. It was the support acts, however, that really excited us. So like he did at Bonnaroo, our tireless photog/artist wrangler Graeme Flegenheimer (with help from The Impossible Project) distributed Polaroid cameras and film to 23 bands — 24 if you count Eminem, who dropped out at the last minute (I forgive him) — to capture exclusive behind-the-scenes moments. The snaps reveal how our favorite bands passed the hours in Grant Park, from shotgunning beers (Black Lips) to meeting Elijah Wood (Tennis) to dry humping backstage (that first photo of Arctic Monkeys above). Many bands took shots of the audience from the stage so now you’ll know what it feels like to be a Car. Some of these Polaroids include scrawled notes; Grouplove get extra credit for decorating theirs with cartoons. Take a look at each image’s caption to learn from whose vantage point you’re looking. There’s a lot to sift through, though, so you can use this handy list to jump ahead to the band(s) that interest you:
