The best of Lollapalooza 2012 (in photos), Day 3

Maybe it was the joy of catching At the Drive-In, where we saw actual people in band T-shirts at a music festival, but of this year’s action in Grant Park, Sunday most felt like the festival’s original incarnation (still spliced with a raging dance party, of course).

ATDI made a triumphant return at this year’s Coachella and a handful of other small gigs, but there was nearly as much anticipation in the air in Chicago, and the band did not disappoint. Followed by performances from Miike Snow (with a climaxing light show), Jack White (who dug out some White Stripes tunes), and Justice (so many illuminated crosses), it capped the weekend on a positive note. Scroll down for their photos (minus Justice — a photographer can only be so places at once) as well as those of Little Dragon, Sigur Rós, Amadou & Miriam, and Childish Gambino.
