Last summer, Lolla was one of the first major music festivals to return to Chicago, struggling at times to keep up with changing vaccine and mask requirements for the city and state even while the 2021 festival was underway. A separate news conference held Tuesday at City Hall discussed possible COVID-related protocols and preparations for this summer’s festival. Chicago’s Department of Public Health Director, Dr. Allison Arwady, said the city would work closely with organizers, but it was too early to say. There would be “no complications” and “no measures” if Lollapalooza took place tomorrow, according to Arwady.
C3 Presents, a branch of Live Nation, is presenting Lollapalooza in Austin, Texas.
The festival also claimed it will introduce NFTs (non-fungible tokens) that fans could buy; follow the Lollapalooza Metaverse Twitter account @LollaFrens for more information.
