Lollapalooza 2023, live: the magnetism of Rosalía, the meeting of Tan Biónica and the rapper spell of Dante Spinetta and Trueno
Wearing a long, checkered dress with a train over black pants and a single glove on her right hand, rosalia greeted the Argentine public: “As soon as I arrive in Buenos Aires I always get sad because I don’t want to leave,” said the Spanish, increasingly Argentine. With the memory still present of her notable concerts at the Movistar Arena, she set out to return all her love in the form of songs. As she did with “La noche de la noche” (Last night), in which she shared a microphone with some lucky fans.
Chano surprised with the expected meeting of Tan Biónica
After presenting some songs from his solo repertoire Santiago Chano Moreno Charpentiertook a break from his show to confirm the rumor that was running at the Hippodrome: the meeting of so bionic. After 7 years, the group that he led with his brother Bambi began their nostalgic journey with “Magic City” and promised a farewell concert in Buenos Aires. “The one we owed ourselves,” he announced, hugging his brother.
Thunder and the flow of the neighborhood
Among the chants of the public that clamored for his presence in a soccer key, the rapper from La Boca came on stage on time with “Hoop Hoop”, showing credentials in lyrics, music and attitude.
Accompanied by rappers Peter Dangerwho is his dad, and KMI420 and backed by a tight band, the musician explained in just over an hour why he is one of the most interesting artists of his generation. Stage management, just and necessary harangue and a musical baggage that jumps from “ABC” of the jackson’s 5 to AC/DC’s Hell’s Bells, understanding that music goes beyond any generational debate. And a very Argentine general tint in his proposal, crowned with “Holy Land”, a tribute to all corners of the country and an inevitable nod to La Scaloneta. “I never forget tonight in my life, it’s that short,” Trueno summed up, with the Samsung stage surrendered at his feet.
The first afternoon album
From very early the fans came to San Isidro to make the most of the experience Lollapalooza. Well varied proposals, of all styles, ideal for the curious. The free reggaeton of the Dominican The Change on the Samsung Stage, the 21st century Spanish folk trova guitarricadelafuente in the Alternative and the freshness of the Argentine dark they warmed up at Perry’s while the sun was still high above the racetrack
Tove Lo’s Endless Dance
Sensuality and synth (power) pop by Tove Lo, the Swedish artist who won over the public with her danceable songs and her scenic mastery. “Thank you very much” (in Spanish) “They are so beautiful” (in English), she greeted her before displaying all her charm, accompanied by a forceful band and the chorus of fans who accompanied her in all her songs . Costume changes, twerking and the Argentine flag with her name were some of the postcards of one of the highest numbers of the festival.
Color and heat of the festival
lollapalooza it is an experience that goes far beyond music. For this reason, fans arrived at the San Isidro Hippodrome very early to live the experience to the fullest. The heat wave that is sustained over Buenos Aires was not an impediment for the early risers who toured the property with caps, sunglasses and a bottle of water to move in the best way on the first day.
Dante Spinetta and the first feats of the festival
Under the sun of the San Isidro Hippodrome, two generations of Argentine rap bumped into fists. It was at Dante’s show, who premiered the songs from his still brand new Sweet table. Donning a purple Prince suit, he commanded a pink big-band that allowed him to further expand his elastic flow. After “The dark side of the heart”, “Forget it” -with his daughter, Life– and “Rebellion” and before rescuing Illya Kuryaki and the Valderramas (“Coolo”), invited the stage to Thunder to share the verses of “Sudaka”. The young rapper from La Boca returned the kindness to Spinetta (he had been one of the guests at his consecration recital at Luna Park last December) for a while before doing the same in Lolla: he will perform from 7:00 p.m. on the Samsung stage .
