The slate for aftershows for Lollapalooza 2014 have been announced, and it wouldn't be a stretch to use the word "staggering" to describe the amount of great music descending on Chicago in late July. 40+ acts will be participating in official Lolla aftershows, and that doesn't include the pop-up shows, DJ sets, and "Hey! There's a famous person in the bar!" appearances.

More often than not, these aftershows are an opportunity for folks who couldn't snag Lolla tickets to catch their favorite act. And this year there are tough decisions to be made. On Friday, do you hit CHVRCHES or Blood Orange? Run the Jewels vs. The 1975 on Saturday? Neither are easy choices. No matter what, this lineup has great music from top to bottom. 

The entire Lollapallooza aftershow list is below, including venue, age restrictions and ticket prices. All shows go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. or noon, depending on venue. Some prices are yet to be announced (listed TBD below). Visit the venue's website just to be on the safe side.
