Lollapalooza Festival Tickets
For almost 30 years, Lollapalooza has been the festival of choice for those who enjoy the alternative music scene. The event is based in Chicago's Grant Park and draws an average of at least 150,000 enthusiasts each year over its 4-day span. Lollapalooza's schedule has something for just about everyone, featuring artists from genres such as hip hop, punk, hard rock and metal. You can expect a nice mix of rap and hip hop from Childish Gambino or enjoy the hard sounds of Bring Me the Horizon if metalcore is more your thing.
Etymology and History
The name of the event comes from an antiquated word meant to describe "a singular or unusual thing," and co-founder Perry Farrell warmed to the name after hearing the word in a short starring The Three Stooges. However, a double meaning also refers to a large lollipop, and the original logs for the event incorporated these into the design. It's thanks to the success of the alternative rock scene at the time that Lollapalooza was able to move forward with such speed and popularity. Over the first few years of Lollapalooza, it expanded to include other events for patrons such as open-microphone readings of poetry or lyrics, tattoo parlors and special mosh pits where concertgoers could smash old television sets. While the popularity of Lollapalooza waned as the new millennium approached, Farrell revived it in 2003. Not only was the comeback successful, but it has since been a popular enough event to expand to other countries.
