They say there is an art to interviewing… but who are “they?” Well, certainly someone with a master’s in journalism, we would suppose. That is not to say you need an advanced degree to interview people or artists, as we quickly found out during our last trip to the windy city. The start of August marked our annual trip to one of our favorite music festivals in the world, Lollapalooza.
In addition to seeing some of our favorite artists live, music festivals also mark the time where we get to speak to some of those talented artists as well. Yet, what is better than asking a host of artists for the twentieth time who their biggest influences and inspirations are? …Letting them do the questioning.
Turning the standard interview on its head, we decided to play a good ol’ fashioned game of telephone with some of our favorite artists on the 2019 Lollapalooza lineup, and it is safe to say they certainly have a backup plan in music journalism if all else fails. From math equations, existential questions, to an odd amount of fecal matter–related questions (aka any more than zero), this what Lollapalooza artists had to ask each other.
Watch as the 26 Ones To Watch below play a fun game of telephone interview:
