Lollapalooza is more than just a music festival. Taking place each year in historic Grant Park, Lolla is a cultural experience that takes place on 115 acres between Downtown Chicago and Lake Michigan.
Something started in ’91. And we just can’t stop.
Music Is Our DNA.
With 8 stages, and 170+ bands from all over the world, every Lolla lineup makes hands wave, heads nod, and crowds holler.
Lolla Is Your World.
There’s an art market, sweet photogenic spots, and tons of merch to swag out with. There’s even a mini-fest for the kiddos.
Chicago’s Best Eats.
Chow Town showcases variety and quality of menu selections. We seek Chicago favorite restaurants, and want to offer our patrons much more than the typical “carnival” type fare, with an emphasis on fresh, reasonably priced items from the Chicago area.
One of the best things about bringing thousands of enthusiastic, like-minded people together? Connecting you with organizations that are improving and saving lives.
