Lollapalooza Expands to 4 Days to Celebrate 25 Years

Lollapalooza is one of the most known music festivals in the world, with dates planned for 2016 in Germany, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, and of course, Chicago. The festival was founded in 1991 by Perry Farrell of Jane’s Addiction, and has been a much-anticipated part of every Chicagoan’s summer since its 2005 debut in Grant Park.

Lollapalooza 2016 will mark the festival’s 25th anniversary, and as Farrell himself has stated on the official website, “we wanted to do something really special and different for our fans.”

So you better get your vacation time scheduled in advance, because Thursday has officially been added to next year’s Lolla schedule! A whole extra day of music and fun sounds like a great time, don’t you think?

The Lollapalooza website boasts more than 170 performances over the four-day festival, held Thursday, July 28th through Sunday, July 31st 2016.

Four-day passes will cost $335, and single-day tickets will cost $120, with ticket sales beginning in Spring 2016.
