Lollapalooza is a four-day summer camp for people from all over the country who love different kinds of music. Imagine Grant Park filled with people in glittery outfits, dancing to alternative rock music with their friends, amazed at the entertainer’s energetic performances. It is a revolutionary scene that evokes a range of emotions. Here are four reasons why you need to buy tickets to Lollapalooza:
The first reason is because it occurs in Chicago’s Grant Park. People of all ethnic groups experience the time of their lives indulging in drinks, laughter, and thrill. Grant Park is a special venue because it has scenic views showing Millenium Park, the Buckingham Memorial Fountain, and the Art Institute of Chicago. It is the perfect place for sightseeing with family, and friends.
The second reason why thousands of people buy their tickets to Lollapalooza because they know how much of a blast it is. The festival is a time for people to meet new friends who share a taste in music. Lollapalooza is an event to develop friendships between people who like punk rock, hip-hop, alternative music, heavy metal, comedy, dance, and crafts booths. The event is more than music, Lollapalooza has fun activities like a pop-up piano bar, a Kidzapalooza, LollaShop, artist store, an autograph tent, pop-up shops, Glam-o-Rama, live screen printing, and hot creatives with Chicagoland designs. Buy out some color striking Lollapalooza gear, get your CD’s signed by your favorite artists, glow up with hair braiding and temporary tattoos.
The third reason is to strut your style. Young teens shop year round in preparation for the annual festival, dressing in glittery shorts, faux fur coats, aiming for the 90’s chic style. Teens bring to life their fashion statements wearing bras as t-shirts, cornrow designs, glitter and stick-on face jewelry.
The fourth and most important reason to go to Lollapalooza this year is to experience the amazing lineup of live music performances. Hip-hop musicians like Chance the Rapper, Travis Scott, and G Herbo, are only a few of the big names to look out for at Lollapalooza this year.
