Performing with Pearl Jam last Thursday on the eve of Lollapalooza, and later headlining Day One with his own Innocent Criminals, the award for Most Dedicated Performer goes to Ben Harper. Need more evidence? On Day Three, Harper performed two songs solo on the kids' stage after flying to Baltimore on Day Two to perform at the Virgin Festival.
