Lollapalooza is the largest musical festival event in Chicago, presenting a diverse range of artists on multiple stages over 115 acres. While the sold out concert features some of the top music acts today – The Cure, Mumford & Sons, Nine Inch Nails, Phoenix, The Killers – Lollapalooza doesn’t stop at music. With Chicago-based chefs presented culinary delights and dozens of activities throughout the weekend, Lollapalooza is truly an unforgettable experience.
The legendary three-day event takes place from August 2 – 4 in the landscaped lawns of Grant Park. What began in 1991 as the farewell show for the group Jane’s Addiction has transformed into today’s larger-than-life musical festival. The 2013 lineup includes 130 celebrated bands from rock, indie, hip-hop, rap, electronica and reggae. From early afternoon to late at night, each day of the festival is packed with performances from your favorite artists. And at $235 for regular three-day passes, it’s no wonder that Lollapalooza has been sold-out for months in advance.
In-between the must-see sets, Lollapalooza offers plenty of activities for all ages to enjoy. Many of the festival’s partners have set up tents all throughout the park to keep you refreshed, energized and ready for more music. Cool-off in water misting zones and shaded comfy chairs; create flower wreaths and personalized henna tattoos; meet your favorite bands at scheduled artist autograph sessions. From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Kidzapalooza is a free event packed with activities, workshops and music for you and your little ones.
Hungry? “Chow Town” will keep your hunger satisfied with menu items from award-winning chefs. Culinary genius Graham Elliot selected this year’s restaurant lineup that includes The Billy Goat Tavern & Grill, Bar Toma, Burrito Beach, Chubby Wieners and many more tasty treats.
