Day 3 of Lollapalooza 2017 started off with more sun and chill vibes (Aug. 5). Compared to the two days prior, the line-up had fewer hip-hop acts on the bill. But of the ones who did hit a stage in Chicago’s Grant Park, their sets at the 26th annual Lollapalooza were live and one for the books.
Chance The Rapper Performs For Jam-Packed Chicago Family And Fans
To mark his third Lollapalooza performance experience, the Chicago native hit the Grant Park stage for his highly anticipated set. Before Chance stepped out on stage, a video reel played of all friends and supporters congratulating The Rapper on all of his accomplishments so far, including the likes of fellow artists like Kanye West and the former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama.
Once he emerged from the wings in his Champion tee, denim jeans and fresh kicks, the excited crowd shouted in excitement as he performed Acid Rap tracks like “Cocoa Butter Kisses,” his humorous verse from DJ Khaled’s “I’m the One,” and his latest jam-filled album, Coloring Book. Between foot working to “All Night” and getting the crowd jumping with “No Problem,” Chancelor Bennett glowed with happiness as love radiated between the audience and the stage.
Vic Mensa made a guest appearance during “Cocoa Butter Kisses” and performed “Say I Didn’t” from his latest album, The Autobiography. Francis and the Lights emerged and performed “May I Have This Dance” before jumping into a dance number with Chance.
Yes, Chance loves the fans and they love him back.

21 Savage’s Set Issa Turn Up
Lollapalooza’s Perry’s stage became the definition of lit thanks to the Atlanta native. Before taking the stage, the rapper played an animated cartoon of himself transforming into a superhero. Shortly after and on schedule, 21 Savage had the crowd jumping as he performed head-nodding records like “Red Ops,” the Metro Boomin’-assisted “No Advance” and his verse on Mike WiLL Made-It’s “Gucci On My.”
With his girlfriend Amber Rose in the DJ showing love and support, Savage set the stage ablaze… literally.
That Crazy Part: The heat from the pyrotechnics and flame blasters literally “slapped ’em out with the fire.” No heart.
