Festivalgoers can get their glitter ready, it’s official: Lollapalooza is coming back this summer. After the COVID-19 pandemic forced the iconic music festival to cancel its in-person plans in 2020, Lollapalooza is coming back this year at full capacity, ready to welcome its 100,000 daily visitors. As the festival returns for its 30th anniversary, not much is expected to be different this year: Lollapalooza will take place from July 29 through August 1 in its usual location in Grant Park in Downtown Chicago.

Miley Cyrus, Post Malone, Tyler, The Creator, Foo Fighters, and Megan Thee Stallion will be among the headliners. Here is the full lineup:

The festival announced around 170 performers from all over the world playing on 8 different stages from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

To remain in accordance with current public health guidance, Lollapalooza visitors will be required to either be vaccinated or to provide negative COVID-19 test results obtained within 24 hours of attending the festival each day. More details on the festival entry process will be available in early July. 

“Here in Chicago, the word ‘Lollapalooza’ has always been synonymous with summer, great music and four days of unforgettable fun – which made last year’s decision to postpone it all the more difficult,” said Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot in a press release.  “Now, less than a year later and armed with a vaccine that is safe, effective and widely available, we are able to bring back one of our city’s most iconic summer music festivals.”

Four-day general admission tickets are currently selling for $375 but prices are expected to keep rising as noted on the Lollapalooza website: “Prices are subject to increase without notice.” Four-day GA+ tickets are selling for $700 and offer a more comfortable experience with shade and seating in two private groves near Buckingham Fountain, a full-service bar with preferred pricing on water, sodas, beer, wine, and cocktails, and premium restrooms, among other perks. For those looking for an even more exclusive experience, the Platinum tickets sell for as much as $4,200.

One-day tickets have not yet been announced but Lollapalooza usually waits until four-day tickets are sold out before announcing the day-by-day lineup and put one-day tickets on sale. Fans can stay up to date on all Lollapalooza announcements by signing up for text updates and following Lollapalooza on social media.
