CHICAGO, Illinois — Mother nature paid a visit to the Lollapalooza Music Festival Sunday (August 3) afternoon. Although the downpour of rain didn’t affect any of the scheduled performances, it did wreak some havoc on the show’s attendees.

While some people found a s—y hiding spot to stay dry, others embraced the waterworks and the mud it produced. MTV News was amongst the sludge soldiers that weren’t going to let the rain get in their way. Check out some of our findings from the mud covered grounds:
