One Obama wasn’t making headlines at the Democratic National Convention this week.

While parents Barack and Michelle were in Philadelphia to watch Hillary Clinton accept the party’s presidential nomination on Thursday, Malia Obama was at a different party — Lollapalooza.

The 18-year-old was spotted at the Chicago festival enjoying EDM artist Cashmere Cat’s set, and naturally it was caught on camera by those nearby in the crowd and posted on Twitter.

It’s not Malia’s first festival experience.

In 2014 she was seen at hometown rapper Chance The Rapper’s Lollapalooza gig.

It’s not clear if she is sticking around for the rest of the festival this weekend, which is headlined by Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers and LCD Soundsystem.
