The Lollapalooza Festival will return to Chicago with a four-day event at its usual place and date range Grant Park, July 29-Aug. 1according to Variety.
The City of Chicago gave the event the green light at near-to-full capacity, insiders report; an official announcement, likely with headliners, is expected to come next week.
Last month, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced that the city is loosening its current pandemic restrictions, with events allowed to operate with 15 people per 1,000 square feet, as reported by the Chicago Tribune. The city's first street festival is scheduled to be the Windy City Smokeout on July 8-11.
However, Lollapalooza will not even be the first major festival to be held in the country since the fall of 2019. The three-day hip-hop festival Rolling Loudwith headliners A$AP Rocky, Travis Scott and Post Malonewill take place July 23-25 at the 65,000-capacity Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.
