Lollapalooza Responds to Canceled Music Festival Announcement
Chicago’s biggest summer music festival was canceled Tuesday
Lollapalooza responded to the public after Chicago’s biggest music festival was canceled Tuesday over concerns of the spreading of the coronavirus.
The festival’s website states the cancellation aims to protect festival-goers from contracting COVID-19.
“We wish we could bring Lollapalooza to Grant Park again this year, but we understand why things can’t move forward as planned. The health and safety of our fans, artists, partners, staff and community is always our highest priority,” Lollapalooza said on their website.
Festival officials said the team will now be working to deliver Chicago Lollapalooza’s 30th Anniversary in the summer of 2021.
“It’s difficult to imagine summer without our annual weekend together, sharing the undeniable energy generated when live music and our incredible community of fans unite,” the website said.
