With a day’s notice, Lollapalooza alerted festival-goers that the festival is returning for the summer.
On May 18th, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced via Twitter, “It’s happening. Lollapalooza returns. In alignment with our public health guidance, the world class festival returns to the city later this summer.”
The festival will continue to take place at the historic Grant Park in Chicago this year. Miley Cyrus, Foo Fighters, Post Malone, and Tyler, The Creator are headlining the four-day event from July 29th to August 1st. Other notable artists on the 2021 bill include Megan Thee Stallion, Journey, DaBaby, Roddy Ricch, Marshmello, Kaytranada, Brockhampton, Jack Harlow, Steve Aoki, and more.
Like Brockhampton, Omar Apollo, and Lauren Sanderson, many of these artists have held livestreaming concerts for their fans at home, performing old and new releases during 2020. Now, fans will be back and ready to catch these performances live and in person.
Lollapalooza is returning at full capacity, and to ensure safety for all attending the event, attendees must have full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 24 hours of the festival.
Prior to purchasing your pass, it is noted, “In accordance with current local public health guidance, full COVID-19 vaccination or negative COVID-19 test results will be required to attend Lollapalooza 2021. For patrons who are not fully vaccinated, a negative COVID-19 test result must be obtained within 24 hours of attending Lollapalooza each day. Details on the festival entry process will be available in early July.”
Music fans and veteran festival-goers are eager to return to the iconic festival. Lollapalooza has a grand opportunity to share innovations coming to the live industry post-quarantine and set the stage for music festivals going forward this year.
