SOUL SOUNDS Chicago at the Hard Rock Hotel
SOUL kicked off Lollapalooza in a big way this year by partnering with their friends at BMF Media to host SOUL Sounds Chicago, an exclusive party in the Fender Ballroom of the Hard Rock Hotel. The red carpet and headlining acts attracted elite partygoers, VIP's and celebrity guests like Phoenix Sun's Shannon Brown, Erica Hubbard, Twist, and more [see below]. Chicago area DJ's Timbuk2 and Hollywood Holt warmed up the crowd with a stellar mix of club jams & hip hop tracks, entertaining guests arriving to see Cee Lo Green and Miguel perform for the intimate, but lively house of media and influencers.

Lolla Lounging at the Hard Rock Hotel Gifting Suite
Dangerous weather (not the name of a band) shut the festival down for a while, but the party continued all weekend long on the 2-4 floors of the Hard Rock Hotel in the VIP & Artist Gifting Lounge. Attending media, talent, artists, industry executives, socialites, and celebrities were entertained with a variety of onsite events; checking out SOUL Headphones being a favorite. Actress Jenny McCarthy, Rose McGowan, and Gossip Girl's Kaylee De Fer [see celebs below] took part, sipping festive drinks, posing for party pics, & mingling with who's who in the music scene.
