Prysm Nightclub, Chicago’s premier nightlife establishment, will be hosting a spate of after parties with DJs and artists during Lollapalooza in Chicago from August 3 to August 6. Electronic dance music is well-represented with such luminary talents as Kaskade, 3LAU and DVBBS taking over the DJ booth to command the luxurious, upscale club.
Thursday night belongs to Migos, the rising rap group riding the success of their breakout single ‘Bad & Bougie.’ Migos, a trio of rappers, follows up their festival appearance with this exclusive show. They are in-demand for guest rap features on singles by today’s biggest pop stars, including Katy Perry. Generating controversy as much as hits, the group will be a hit in Chicago, as rap music reigns supreme in the city’s music scene.
3LAU, real name Justin Blau, will play on Friday, August 4. The American EDM hitmaker has remixed for countless artists including Zedd and Ariana Grande, but also has a host of his own hits, including the infectious ‘On My Mind.’ The single’s video is a humorous portrayal of love found at the club, and features football star Rob Gronkowski.
Chicago native and dance music legend Kaskade takes over the booth on Saturday, August 5, following up on his spellbinding Spring Fling Redux show at Prysm’s sister club The Mid last month. Tickets for Kaskade are almost sold out, so act fast to secure your spot on the dancefloor as Kaskade shows his hometown some love again.
Finally, DVBBS closes out the schedule on Sunday, August 6. The Canadian brothers will play at Lollapalooza. If that’s not enough, the King of EDM, Tiësto, will play on Wednesday, August 2, in an appearance not associated with the festival but nevertheless thrilling.
Lolla, as the festival is affectionately known as, is Chicago’s largest music festival and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors to Grant Park on the Windy City’s lakeshore. This year features far less EDM acts, perhaps in a bid to return to founder Perry Farrell’s vision of an alternative music festival. Fans need not worry, for Prysm will more than meet demand for the best the genre offers with these exclusive after shows.
Mounted by promoter React Presents and Lollapalooza organizer C3, the shows have tickets on sale now, ranging from $15 to $50.
