Lykke Li “I Follow Rivers” (Live)

—bump— Originally posted 12:18pm.

One of the standout performances we saw during Lollapalooza weekend was Lykke Li, accompanied by a vibrant live band, headlining Night 1 of ‘The Sound Of Your Stay Music Lounge’. We were up in the front row with the cameras rolling where it was Lykke Li’s 2011 hit single “I Follow Rivers” that made for a memorable performance. The “I I follow” in the chorus and the “Ohhh Ohh Oh Oh Oh” will have you singing after you watch the video, as I also particularly enjoyed the buildup and energy to the last chorus. Stay tuned all the way through for that, and another visual surprise as well. Enjoy!

BMF Media held their yearly 2 day The Sound of Your Stay Music Lounge at the Hard Rock Hotel where guests were invited to join in on activities throughout the day and into the wee hours. Free drinks + private artist performances = a one of a kind experience for any festival junkie. Red7Salon offered complimentary hair do’s (much needed when trying to freshen up for late night after parties or just after running around at Lolla) while Heineken Light and others offered up some snazzy refreshments.

Late night performances included Lykke Li, ASTR, Joywave, Delta Rae, Betty Who, and Smallpools. The first night we arrived just in time to check out ASTR, her dance moves…simply hypnotic. Lykke Li…unbelievably chill vibe, after a long day of chaos at the festival it was very refreshing to hear an acoustic, more intimate performance.

DJ sets for the weekend included Jeffrey Tonnesen, Joe Jonas, DJ Mom Jeans, Mia Moretti, Grouplove, and Captain Cuts. While at the lounge guests had a chance, thanks to Beats Music, to charge up their devices, mingle, and check out new music (for any amateur photographer and/or lover of selfies your phone was likely dying by mid day). Also readily available was the Picks photo booth presented by Fender, another cool way to remember the night.

#GWHHVIDEO: Eve LIVE @ CK One Music Lounge #LOLLA


Filmed & Edited by: Maks G

The CK One Music Lounge was another go-to spot to be at for Lollapalooza weekend if you weren’t at the festival during the day. Exhibit A is this private performance from Eve, who performed a high-energy mix of classics and new cuts from her summer album, Lip Lock.

The intimate and exclusive setting allowed the crowd to interact with Eve in between songs, which gave the performance even more of a family feel. As a first-time viewer of Eve in person, I came away impressed with her engaging vibe and overall style. I was swept up with the crowd in all the fun when her classics came on like “Who’s That Girl and “Tambourine,” both documented above. Plus, I’m seeing more and more that her Lip Lock album is nothin’ to sleep on as the intro track “Eve,” which leads off the video above, really resonated in person too. All in all, it certainly sounds like I enjoyed the performance doesn’t it? So did the rest of our team and those in the CK One Music Lounge.

Give another one of our #GWHHVideos a look-see above and also browse below for a sampling of what the CK One Music Lounge was like. As Eve shouted out in the video too, shoutout to BMF Media once again for putting together the dope event and atmosphere.
