As far as I know there was only one Lollapalooza-related stabbing yesterday, and the cops are saying they arrested eight people on minor (unrelated) charges—I'd have to call that a successful day, given what usually happens when you pack more than 100,000 people into a few square blocks when it's hot and humid and then let them drink beer.

It's starting to look to me like EDM will be the story of this year's Lollapalooza, but we don't have any pictures from the Perry's stage to show you yet—there's rarely much to look at onstage at an EDM show while the sun is up, since daylight overwhelms the artists' light shows, and once it got dark on Friday night, our photographers apparently either preferred to see the Black Keys or just decided they'd rather not wade through the huge crowd gathering for Bassnectar.

On the other hand, we do have lovely pictures of M83, Passion Pit, Die Antwoord, Metric, and more. There's a big slide show coming Monday, and for now you can see our favorites after the jump:
