Childish GambinoWe're heading towards Summer which means icy boozy beverages, copious movies about super power-laden humans, and lots and lots of outdoor concerts. And in August, there's an explosion of two of those factors: Chicago's Lollapalooza music festival. For three days, August 3 through 5, bands take over the city's Grant Park — the same park that held the jubilant crowd the night President Obama won the 2008 election. 

And 2012 is going to fill out the picturesque park with tents, stages and sweaty music fans for the lineup chock full of big name acts like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Keys and Florence + the Machine. Plus, TV fans will be happy to find American Idol alum Haley Reinhart and Community star Donald Glover (as his rapper alter ego Childish Gambino) slated for the fest. So yeah, it's going to be a big one. 

Fire up the Spotify, crank up your headphones, and start listening because this year's lineup is nothing short of huge
