That's not to say his performance wasn't special, though. Hot on the heels of his historic "Trilogy" show in Las Vegas, which was a watershed moment in his career, ILLENIUM appeared on Lollapalooza's Bud Light Seltzer Stage to perform a bubbly set (get it?) for his diehard fanbase. The show doubled as a homecoming for the bass music superstar, who was born in Chicago prior to a move to San Francisco.
What can be said about this performance that hasn't been said about ILLENIUM's other 2021 shows? In what has been a remarkable year for the Fallen Embers producer, he seems to deliver unforgettable live music experiences at every turn, cycling through the singalong anthems of his four albums to spine-chilling effect. His Lollapalooza set was no different, kicking off with a VIP edit of 2018's "Crawl Outta Love" (with Annika Wells) before plunging into a supercollider of future bass and dubstep for nearly 90 minutes.
