Though the 2020 edition of Lollapalooza was cancelled due to COVID-19, the festival’s founder, Perry Farrell has proudly announced that, “We’re growing closer.”
In the video below, Farrell gleams, “I hold in my hands my license to party! It’s my COVID-19 vaccination receipt! I will see you at Lollapalooza soon!” The recording was taken several days ago and has received much excitement from fans eager to get back to festival life. While the clip is no guarantee that anything will happen this year, hope springs eternal that should public health conditions allow, music lovers will be able to converge on Grant Park for a 2021 live music event.
The Chicago-based festival was forced to cancel last year’s show but quickly adapted with a special virtual edition hosting the likes of Alison Wonderland, NGHTMRE, ZHU, WHIPPED CREAM, Boombox Cartel, CloZee, 4B and more. Watch replays of some of the best sets.
