I'm not judging the execution; I'm judging the content.

It happened so subtly that I think anyone over 30 had difficulty noticing, but the generation below the Millenials doesn't give a shit about genre anymore. There are no "emo kids" or "goth kids" or "rockers" or "punks". Pop music and non-pop music these days, if it's not rehashed dinosaurs, is pretty heavily genre-bending. Billie Eilish's music, e.g., doesn't follow traditional Max Martin-esque pop formulae. Neither does Post Malone. You may not like specific artists because their voice/lyrics/use of electronics, whatever is grating, but it's difficult to pin it on an entire genre like we used to.

One thing that's hilarious about Bman's reaction is that Lolla, and the alternative movement, was *always* intended (especially by Perry) to be genre-defying. It's just that in the early 90s, genre was a huge deal compared to now.

Pitchfork Music Fest is a good example of how the original Lollapalooza spirit can live on. It's possible.

It's just not possible at the numbers Lollapalooza wants to be at.

Not that it’s any surprise at this point but Lolla Chicago has officially been canceled. In its place will be “an online event with live music in a weekend-long livestream event  July 30 - August 2, 2020.  The livestream will include performances from around the city and beyond, epic archival sets from Chicago and the festival’s six international editions, never-before-seen footage from the 1990s and much more.”

You want to see the Reading/Leeds and V Festival line ups over here these days. They're like high school discos.
