After the rain, a rainbow appeared above the festival, which proved to be a popular photo opportunity for festival goers.

Day three of Lollapalooza 2023 brought another packed day of artist performances, finishing with headliners Odesza and Tomorrow X Together.

Other performances included Hoosh, Suki Waterhouse, Yung Gravy, The Revivalists, Pusha T and more. 

Despite some heavy rain for the first several hours of the festival, crowds still showed up in large numbers to support their favorite artists.

 

Hoosh started the day off strong with a rap set at the Coinbase stage. The 45-minute performance kicked off at 12:15 p.m. in the middle of a heavy downpour. Hoosh’s optimistic vibes and dedicated fans pushed through the weather to create a positive performance experience. Read Hoosh’s chat with The Daily Illini here
