Folks, the time has come. We’ve waited, we’ve prayed, we’ve refreshed the Google search “when will festivals return?” more often than “when will I get my stimulus check?” and finally, sweet relief is on the horizon. Lollapalooza is back, baby! And (hopefully) here to stay. Held annually since 1991 (with the exception of 2020) in Chicago’s sprawling Grant Park, Lolla is poised for a triumphant return from Thursday, July 29th to Sunday, August 1st, 2021. And after a seemingly never-ending hiatus from live music? You’d better believe this lineup is stacked. Headliners include the FOO FIGHTERS, POST MALONE, MILEY CYRUS, and TYLER, THE CREATOR. With support—if it can even be called that—from ALISON WONDERLAND, KAYTRANADA, YOUNG THE GIANT, MEGAN THEE STALLION, and SUBTRONICS, to name a few. In other words: 8 stages, 170+ artists, and unlimited potential to rock out. You can find the full lineup and more at: https://www.lollapalooza.com/lineup
Tickets are currently available for purchase at the 4-Day General Admission and 4-Day Platinum tiers.
Single-day tickets have yet to go on sale.
