It's Friday night, what are you doing?

LONDON, ENGLAND - MAY 23: (STRICTLY EDITORIAL USE ONLY) Sir Paul McCartney performs live on stage at The O2 Arena on May 23,

Paul McCartney

Good ole Paul! You're content with the classics and ready to hear Macca perform some Beatles and solo tunes. You know what you like and you're unwilling to change in your ways, which is a pretty admirable trait to have. Forget the newcomers and trendy acts; you know good music is music that has stood the test of time. You definitely won't be disappointed with your headliner and you're very aware of that.

LONDON, ENGLAND - FEBRUARY 25: Sam Smith performs on stage at the BRIT Awards 2015 at The O2 Arena on February 25, 2015 in Lo

Sam Smith

A classic crooner...with a twist! Sam's one of the closest things we have to the soul performers of yesteryear, but that doesn't mean you're only there for nostalgia's sake. In between the heartfelt ballads, Sam's also got a dance and house-inflected tunes he'll bust out during his set. Plus loads of sassy, witty humor he'll throw in between songs. You're into a classic kind of shows, but Sam offers something a little more refreshing that works perfect for your taste.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM - NOVEMBER 26: The Weeknd performs on stage at O2 Arena on November 26, 2013 in London, United Kingdom

The Weeknd

The hottest R&B act on the planet! Sure, the Weeknd is famous for those mysteriously haunting and sexy joints—and, trust, there will be a lot of those. But Abel Tesfaye has started really owning his pop tendencies in new material like "I Can't Feel My Face." There will be slow grinds, but there'll also be new material to get you dancing. You're clearly ready for an eclectic show.

MANCHESTER, TN - JUNE 14: Singer Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine performs onstage at What Stage during Day 4 of th

Florence + the Machine

Rock's mystical vixen in the flesh! Florence + the Machine are having a huge year with a new No. 1 album 'How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful' and you should be ready to prance the night away to the new tunes as well as booming hits like "Dogs Days Are Over." Florence's show is one to really let loose at and clearly you're the type who wants their headliner to provide an experience more than anything. Whether it's the incredible music hitting you in the face or all the people who met dancing with, you won't forget this set anytime soon.

NEW YORK - SEPTEMBER 05: Lorin Ashton of Bassnectar performs during Day 2 of 2010 Electric Zoo held at Randall's Island Park

Bassnectar

One of the finest DJs! Whether or not you're down with EDM, Bassnectar is famous for live performances that incorporate an breathtaking light show. You'll lose yourself among all the flashing neon and bass drops, and that's what you're looking for: An all-inclusive musical getaway. And that's really what festivals are all about, right?

MONTREAL, QC - AUGUST 09: Kirk Hammett performs with Metallica on Day 1 of the Heavy Montreal Festival on August 9, 2014 in M

Metallica

The heavy metal gods themselves! You clearly don't mess around when it comes to festivals and Metallica is for the no-nonsense Lollapalooza attendee. You'll watch them shred through their set and you'll obviously be jumping along the entire time as close to the front row as you can push yourself. Whether or not you're a huge Metallica fan, this is one of the craziest headliners you'll probably ever see—and you'll enjoy it for all it's worth.
