‘Hope’ and ‘Passion’ can be big words; we know a thing or two about that. Still, they’ve been giving us the possibility to interpret them in multiple ways during the past years. Over the past twelve months we asked countless beloved artists about their associations with these two words and documented it via wonderful photographs here and here.

Now, our photographers Annett Bonkowski and Jana Legler attended the 2017 edition of the Lollapalooza festival in Berlin for a different perspective on these things. Instead of focussing on big headliners like MUMFORD AND SONS, THE XX and LONDON GRAMMAR they decided to focus on some of the over 80.000 visitors of the giant open air spectacle and asked the audience about their thoughts, ideas and creative ways of describing what hope and passion mean to them in that special situation. From paintings to words of wisdom – here’s what the audience of Lollapalooza 2017 has to say about it.
