It's the biggest and best venue for indy and alternative rock bands in the country -- AND the hottest ticket of the summer.

This year, Lollapalooza celebrates its 29th year -- with a promise of special performances from top names in rock, pop, rap and reggae during a long summer weekend from Thursday, July 30 to Sunday, August 2, 2020.

The annual music festival regularly draws more than 200,000 visitors to Chicago for four days of eating, drinking and hob-nobbing, as well as family-friendly activities for kids of all ages along with, of course .... the music concerts by the hottest acts around.

More than 100 performers appear at the annual Lollapalooza music fest which has helped to launch the careers of alternative bands such as Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails, and The Smashing Pumpkins.

2020 Lollapalooza lineup

Watch for the announcement of this year's Lollapalooza concert lineup to be announced in April.

Buying Lollapalooza tickets

'Early Bird' tickets traditionally go on sale on in late March but act fast or you're out of luck - as these tickets are much cheaper than buying tickets during the summer - and as usual sell out very quickly!

If you're left out of the Early Bird running, Lollapalooza Early Bird multi-day passes go on sale beginning in April . Meanwhile, regular ticket passes go on sale in late spring. Single-day ticket passes usually go on sale mid-summer.

Lollapalooza pics

Artists like Lorde (who played Lollapalooza in 2014 & 2017) have joined a cavalcade of famous names who
have appeared at the Chicago summer venue where crowd-watching often competes with live acts on stage.

Getting to Grant Park

If driving to Grant Park, underground parking is available at the nearby Millennium Garage with 3-day passes available for Lollapalooza attendees.

By far the easiest way to attend the festival, however, is by public transportation via Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) bus or train. By taxi, get dropped off on Michigan Avenue at Congress, then head over to the Box Office and into the Lollapalooza entrance right in front of Grant Park's Buckingham Fountain.

Hotels near Grant Park vary from expensive to moderately expensive, and include the Chicago Hilton, Hard Rock Hotel, the W City Center, and the James Hotel, with some offering Lollapalooza hotel/travel/ticket packages available through travel agents and online.
