Lollapalooza announced its return for the summer of 2021 this week, with a slew of top-tier acts set to take the stage in Chicago’s Grant Park. The event, which takes place from July 29-August 1, saw tickets go on sale earlier this week. The festival’s return to its traditional late-July/early-August timeline follows its cancellation a year ago due to COVID.
Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the summer festival pioneer, the event is headlined by an all-star cast of bands and performers, including Foo Fighters, Post Malone, Tyler, The Creator, Miley Cyrus, DaBaby, Marshmello, Illenium, Journey, Megan Thee Stallion and Roddy Ricch. The list goes on and on from there, with other favorites like Young Thug, Limp Bizkit, Modest Mouse, Steve Aoki, Merc Rebillet, and many (many) more rounding out the acts booked for Chicago. In total, we count more than 170 acts on the poster, though acts are always subject to change.
Ticket prices for the event begin with general admission passes at $375. From there, prices jump to $700 for GA+, $1,600 for VIP and $4,200 for Platinum. All pass prices are for 4-day access. Single-day passes are not currently available.
One thing that any fans interested in attending should pay attention to is the entry requirements being put in place by local health authorities.
“In accordance with current local public health guidance, full COVID-19 vaccination or negative COVID-19 test results will be required to attend Lollapalooza 2021. For patrons who are not fully vaccinated, a negative COVID-19 test result must be obtained within 24 hours of attending Lollapalooza each day. Details on the festival entry process will be available in early July. If you have questions about COVID-19 vaccines or to find a vaccination location near you, please visit www.vaccinefinder.org.”
Despite that policy, the festival website does warn of the inherent risk of COVID-19 exposure inherent to attendance.
