Lollapalooza Sony Stage 2012

Lolla 2012 was a good time on the Sony Stage.  It's a daytime stage, unfortunately, so really only the second half of the headliners set is at all in the dark.  Still, it was a nice little rig - I really liked having all the different trusses flown at different heights and raked.

Miike Snow's set.  The bands's LD used only white the whole set, 
and pulled it off pretty well.

They also brought in a significant floor package, provided by Upstaging.
