As more and more Americans discover the joys of large-scale music festivals, organizers are learning how to cater to growing demand. It makes sense, then, that next year’s iteration of Chicago’s famous Lollapalooza will expand to a four-day affair according to founder Perry Farrell.
“It’s our 25th Anniversary and we wanted to do something really special and different for our fans,” Farrell says in a statement. “There’s a lot of really great music coming out in 2016; with the abundance of talent that wanted to help us celebrate 25 years we got to thinking…’How are we going to fit all those great artists in one weekend?’ Then we thought about what a special day Thursday has become. When the party can’t wait for the weekend, the movers and shakers make it happen on Thursday! So, we’ve put together an entire additional day of music to celebrate our milestone year. It’s going to be a fantastic party!”
Lollapalooza 2016 will run from Thursday, July 28 through Sunday, July 31. Per a press release, “four-day General Admission tickets will be available for $335 (including fees) and single day General Admission tickets will be available for $120 (including fees) beginning Spring 2016.”
