Although I didn't make it (again) to Lollapalooza this year, I did watch a lot of the festival via their live stream. Bless 2018.
A couple of my favorite performances included lovelytheband and Billie Eilish; a lot of the hype was about Vampire Weekend, for good reasons!
They actually kicked off their set by playing "A-Punk" three times...

Vampire Weekend opened their #Lolla set by playing “A-Punk” 3 times. Back to back. Uh... I mean, I get that people like that song, but... not 9 minutes worth?— Parker Molloy (@ParkerMolloy) August 5, 2018
They also announced that their new album is done!
This will be their fourth studio album and the follow up to 2013's Modern Vampires of the City.
Check out more from their Lolla performance below.
