Lollapalooza Canceled Due to Coronavirus Pandemic

Lollapalooza 2020 has been canceled due to ongoing health concerns related to the coronavirus pandemic.

“We wish we could bring Lollapalooza to Grant Park again this year, but we understand why things can’t move forward as planned,” the festival wrote on its website. “The health and safety of our fans, artists, partners, staff and community is always our highest priority.” As the Chicago Tribune notes, the festival was canceled alongside a handful of other local events, such as Taste of Chicago and the Chicago Jazz Festival. Lollapalooza, which was set to take place July 30th through August 2, is held at Chicago’s Grant Park and typically draws about 100,000 people each year.
