21 Reasons Not To Miss The BMI/Lollapalooza Stage

So much music is packed into three days at Lollapalooza it can be mind boggling.  First thing you need to do is study the map and know where the stages are located.  Here's the low down on just one of their many stages, the BMI stage, which is located just north of Buckingham Fountain.  This is a fantastic central location with bit of shade and the mist from the fountain can be a savior on a steamy day.

Broadcast Music, Inc.® (BMI®) represents over 600,000 songwriters, composers and music publishers in all genres of music and more than 8.5 million works.  So it's safe to say they have a plethora of artists to showcase every year at Lolla.  On August 1, 2 and 3 from 12:00noon to 7:30 p.m. each day you can catch 21 diverse acts.  Here's this year's line-up:
