The 2011 Lollapalooza Music Festival officially kicks off tomorrow (August 5) in Chicago, IL, and among the press there have been several mentions of Ms. Grey – both her August 5 Belve Vodka Music Lounge VIP club performance at the W Chicago City Center, as well as her on-stage performance on August 6.
See what both StarPulse.com and the Chicago Post-Tribune (part of the Chicago Sun Times) have to say about her upcoming performances below.

Belvedere Vodka presents the Belve Music Lounge, an invitation only, BMF Media VIP retreat and media hub, at the W Chicago City Center, moments away from the festival grounds. On both Friday and Saturday nights, guests will delight in Belvedere cocktails while enjoying bands and DJ sets into the early hours of the morning.
On Friday evening, VH1 You Oughta Know artists Two Door Cinema Club and Fitz and The Tantrums are scheduled to give special performances along with a live DJ set by Grace Potter. On Saturday evening, The Black Lips, DJ Momjeans, Skylar Grey, Elijah Wood and Mia Moretti & Caitlin Moe will hit the stage.

If you don’t recognize the name Skylar Grey, you’ve likely heard her work. Grey, aka Holly Brook Hafermann, 25, co-wrote “Love the Way You Lie” (the blazing hit for Eminem, Saturday’s Lollapalooza headliner, and Rihanna), among others, and she’s the haunting female voice singing on Lupe Fiasco’s anthemic “Words I Never Said.” On her own, the Madison, Wis., native still attracts talent; Marilyn Manson collaborates on Grey’s forthcoming debut album. See why big stars love this up-and-comer. 2:30 p.m. on the BMI stage.
