2016 marks Lollapalooza’s 25th anniversary. To mark the occasion, festival organizers have decided to extend the normally 3-day festival into 4 days. They made the announcement today via social media and their website and also included pricing and packages for the annual Chicago tradition.
“In celebration of 25 years as a world-renowned music festival, Lollapalooza is excited to announce an additional full day of music programming for the 2016 edition in Chicago’s beautiful Grant Park, which will feature more than 170 musical performances over four days.
“It’s our 25th Anniversary and we wanted to do something really special and different for our fans. There’s a lot of really great music coming out in 2016; with the abundance of talent that wanted to help us celebrate 25 years we got to thinking…‘How are we going to fit all those great artists in one weekend?’ Then we thought about what a special day Thursday has become. When the party can’t wait for the weekend, the movers and shakers make it happen on Thursday! So, we’ve put together an entire additional day of music to celebrate our milestone year. It’s going to be a fantastic party!” said Lollapalooza founder, Perry Farrell.
Lollapalooza 2016 will take place Thursday, July 28 and continue through Sunday, July 31. Four-day General Admission tickets will be available for $335 (including fees) and single day General Admission tickets will be available for $120 (including fees) beginning Spring 2016.”
