One of the best parts of Lollapalooza is covering the wealth of parties going on outside the gates of Grant Park. Rolling Stone Live: Chicago has continually put on one of the most sought after events year after year at Paris Club.
Rolling Stone took over Paris Club for brunch. Even though it started at 12pm-4pm, calling it lunch just isn’t as sexy as brunch. Bub city catered a gourmet brunch and Ketel brought on the refreshments.
Special acoustic sets by Kygo and Marina and the Diamonds kicked off the first half of the party, while Galantis closed out the afternoon with high energy beats and loads of confetti.
The craziest part was coming out of the club buzzed with oversized confetti in my hair… at 4pm on a Saturday. Had it been 12 hours later, maybe that would have been more socially acceptable, but that’s not as fun.
Rolling Stone and Paris Club definitely upped the ante for brunches from now on.
As you can see from the lineup above, there are a lot of great acts to see… even beyond headliners like Kendrick Lamar and the living legend Stevie Wonder. I’d line up to see Kid Cudi, Run The Jewels, Kygo, and SZA, just to name a few.

Now Kygo’s here with his new solo single, “Firestone”, with an artist named Conrad on the vocals. The instantly catchy, high-pitched melody is what will reel ya in, as it did me. Conrad does a nice job to put this one on repeat, which is what I have it on since the co-founder Maks G passed this along. Lookin’ forward to more from Kygo.
Another Weeknd co-signed remix has made its rounds thanks to the singer’s tweet of this fresh take on “Often” by Norwegian producer Kygo. He speeds up Weeknd’s vocals and adds infectious layers as the song progresses. By just before the first hook, I was all in. A must-listen for Weeknd fans.
