Killer Mike and El-P, aka Run the Jewels

This year's edition of Lollapalooza was possibly the most controversial since the festival took up an annual weekend-long residence in Grant Park in the summer of 2005. As reported here on the Bleader and elsewhere, Blood Orange's Dev Hynes and Samantha Urbani were assaulted by security officers who were reportedly not employed by the festival; yesterday, Chance the Rapper brought R. Kelly out onstage, but the reception was considerably cooler than the one following the latter's performance at last year's Pitchfork Music Festival. Despite the debatable choices of the Lollapalooza organizers, there were plenty of great performances this past weekend, and our photographers were there to capture most of it. Check out our photo slideshow below to see some of the best of the weekend.
