With the 25th Lollapalooza just around the corner, we are excited to share round two of our top 5 acts you can’t miss. Taking place in Chicago’s Grant Park, the festival will run for 4 full days this year for the first time ever with a multi-genre lineup featuring over 170 artists. Headliners include Red Hot Chili Peppers, Future, Radiohead and more, reminding us why Lollapalooza is one of the best festivals in America.
In addition to the non-stop music across 8 stages, the grounds will also include Chow Town – a mini food festival featuring native dishes from well known local restaurants. This recent addition will be curated by Chicago’s Graham Elliot, promising some of the best festival bites around. With tickets already sold out, those who missed out can rely on tons of official afterparties featuring Lollapalooza artists at nearby venues throughout the weekend. You can check out the schedule and purchase tickets for these satellite events here.
