Although winter is upon us in Chicago we still can’t help but look forward to summer. And whenever anyone thinks of summer in Chicago, they think of one of the biggest festivals in the country, Lollapalooza. What was once a traveling festival consisting of mostly Rock music will finally be reaching its 25th anniversary taking place July 28th to July 31st in Grant Park. If those dates look strange to you then you’re not mistaken. Unlike its past years in Chicago, Lollapalooza will be extending its stay for an extra day turning it into a 4 day event. This means there will be over 170 musical acts.
“It’s our 25th Anniversary and we wanted to do something really special and different for our fans. There’s a lot of really great music coming out in 2016; with the abundance of talent that wanted to help us celebrate 25 years we got to thinking…‘How are we going to fit all those great artists in one weekend?’ Then we thought about what a special day Thursday has become. When the party can’t wait for the weekend, the movers and shakers make it happen on Thursday! So, we’ve put together an entire additional day of music to celebrate our milestone year. It’s going to be a fantastic party!” said Lollapalooza founder, Perry Farrell.
Single-day tickets will now be priced at $120 while the four-day pass will be $335. These prices have all fees included. VIP and Platinum prices have not been announced. Stay up to date with the latest info from Lollapalooza here.
