Exclusive Photos: The Temper Trap Backstage At Lollapalooza

Written by Mike Hohnen on August 17, 2012

Ever since that one episode of The Simpsons, Lollapalooza has always seemed like one of those far off dream lands that’s wonderment is only surpassed by the tales of what goes on backstage. Well, my friends, thanks to the good guys from The Temper Trap, we can now take a look at just what does on behind the security-riddled fences: the illusive backstage.

The lads took a bunch of snaps during their time at the gig, despite the fact that their set was axed due to unforeseen weather conditions, which saw the fest get locked down for a short period of time, reopening just in time for headliners The Red Hot Chili Peppers to perform.

But, rain hail or shine, the Temper Trap seemed to have made the most of their time. Take a goosey gander at some of the pics below.

The festival site with Chicago skyline in the background. Who was to know that in a few hours the sky would be black.


Jonny goofing around in the press area. which mouth should I choose today?


Dougy warming up the vocal chords, too bad they won’t be put to use.


Storm clouds forming in the sky. We got stuck in the full force of the storm and it was pretty insane.
