The festival at Chicago’s Grant Park is spread across four days with over 180 bands.
Headliners include some of the biggest names in music. The Strokes and Chainsmokers will headline on August 1, Childish Gambino and Tame Impala on August 2, Twenty One Pilots and J Balvin on August 3, and Ariana Grande and Flume will close the festival on August 4.
The festival was created in 1991 by Jane’s Addiction singer Perry Farrell as a farewell tour for his band. The touring festival ran annually until 1997 and was revived again in 2003.
In 2005, it found its home at Grant Park, where it has been ever since. Lollapalooza has continued to grow and for its 25th anniversary in 2016, the festival extended from three days to four.
