EVERYWHERE—What's cooler than being able to hail your own personal cab driver with a smartphone app? Being able to hail your own personal stretch limo with said app, of course. If you use Uber and you're traveling in a pack for Lolla weekend, hail an UberStretch to take a party of up to ten to the fest in style. And don't worry about footing the whole bill—the new share fee feature makes splitting the cost a breeze. Enter the promo code UBERPALOOZA13 for $25 off your first ride. [RackedWire]
EVERYWHERE—No matter how fest-tastic your Lolla duds are, chances are the mix of sweat, crowd and booze will do less than ideal things for your makeup. #Beautypalooza is on call for these emergency situations. A street team of reps from Pretty Quick, Social Life Chicago and Glossed & Found will give impromptu makeovers to festival-goers in need. Where will you find them? The answer to that can be found on Glossed and Found's Twitter. [RackedWire]
