Days 2 and 3 at Lolla this year had a heavy Chicago feel. Playing their part was Krewella, who headlined Day 2 of the Perry’s Stage and put on quite a phenomenal show featuring a 1 hour and 15 second mix of their hits spliced with hip hop like A$AP Rocky’s “Fuckin’ Problems” and Ludacris’ “How Low Can You Go?”. All of this was taken to another level as they incorporated the huge stage of multiple video screens with lights, smoke, and lasers that extended well out into the field where we were standing for these pics.
Look at Krewella puttin’ on for the Chi. Various times throughout their set, the sisters Jahan and Yasmine spoke from the heart, saluting the most beautiful city in the world with all of their family and close friends in attendance for their biggest performance to date in their hometown. It made their rendition of “Alive” at the end even that much more special (they wrote the song 3 miles away from Grant Park.)
The one official video clip of their set is below via Billboard, and stay tuned with the Krew as in-house videographer Miles Evert was also on hand documenting the performance. I was also able to find a very HQ audio rip of the entire 75 minutes and perfectly time a drop on Vine — both below the video. Fun to relive for me as I’ll instantly be able to recall the wind from the booming sound rushing at my face from such a distance and the vibration of the crowd jumping up and down on the ground.

Lastly, Yasmine and Jahan sat down with Billboard to talk about coming home for Lollapalooza and also shed some light on their hotly anticipated sophomore album. We’ll be tuned in as 2015 is shaping up to be even bigger for Krewella.
We keep writing songs, and songs we loved two months ago now will never make the album. We’re taking maybe 50 percent of the next four months off to really crank the second album out and focus on it, and try to finish birthing it.
