Chow Town

Of course we all go for the tunes, community, and atmosphere, but if your taste buds aren’t watering from imagining all of the food you’ll be scarfing down, you’re not really ready for Lolla. Chow Town is Lollapalooza’s own foodie central, with tons of tasty options from the Windy City’s finest eateries. Curated by the celebrity chef Graham Elliot, there is sure to be an entree, drink, or treat for everyone in attendance!

Lolla Market

As the one-stop shopping destination, you can guarantee the Lolla Market will have all the garb and souvenirs that your heart — or wallet — can handle. With artist merch, an autograph signing tent, and even a glitter bar, you may find yourself having to make the pit stop more than once! Don’t worry too much if your outfit is missing an accessory or two, because the market has got you covered. Did we mention that the LollaShop is air conditioned?

Kidzapalooza

As the definitive family festival, Lollapalooza wouldn’t be complete without a kiddie zone! Open every day from 11am-7pm, the Kidzapalooza enclosed area of Grant Park has music & events that kids of all ages — and their parents — can get down to. Complete with skateboarding demos, hip-hop workshops, a music video tent, & much more – it shouldn’t be too hard to find where all the cool kids will be hanging out!

Lolla Cares

It may be all about the community while you’re at the festival, but don’t forget that the community lives on long after the weekend ends. Since its inception, Lollapalooza has always worked to inform its guests on how we can help to better our world. Whether its becoming more environmentally conscious, registering to vote, or saving a life through a bone marrow match, Lolla Cares brings together the best of the best!


Aftershows

When the festival grounds close each night, the party is far from over! With shows from acts like Spoon, Blink-182, Migos, Mac DeMarco, Grouplove, Zeds Dead, + many more happening every night, the festival fun extends far beyond Grant Park, and even further into the night. The party never stops at Lollapalooza! Check out the full schedule here.

We hope you’re getting ready for Lolla! If you’re not sold yet, check out this ridiculous lineup:

We’ll see you at the Park!!!
