There have been many complaints that Lollapalooza 2014 features the same old acts of years past. Well, we can’t argue with that. But, if you’ve been attending the three-day Grant Park party for over a decade, it's more than likely you're not just going to see the headliners.

Enter: Our top picks for newfound audible bliss. Sure, you can still see Eminem, Skrillex, and Kings of Leon — but please don't dismiss the hypnotic beats of Broken Bells, the simple charm of The Avett Brothers, and the chance to see the song of the summer, "Fancy" from Iggy Azalea, performed live. So, without further ado, five performances that are guaranteed to rock your world — or at the least your weekend.
