Lollapalooza announces two-day festival in Chicago, July 23-24
Lollapalooza returns with two-day event with over 60 artists performing on five stages in the heart of downtown Chicago. Headliners are the Pixies, Weezer, Widespread Panic, the Killers, Dinosaur Jr. and Liz Phair, and tickets are $85 for a two-day pass. At a press conference this morning, Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell said that “he’d felt like he had lost a limb” after the cancellation of the 2004 Lollapalooza tour but was excited about the possibility of bringing the festival to Chicago which always “had a heart for the arts.” Farrell also said he was excited to build the “Kidsapalooza” area, and the Blue Man Group would be performing there.
