More than 100 bands will perform on eight stages in Chicago's Grant Park this weekend for Lollapalooza, which has arguably the most impressive lineup of any music festival this year.
Everything kicks off Friday morning and will go into Sunday night—the festival's lineup represents a plethora of artists that make up American music today: Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Kanye West, Rage Against the Machine, and Wilco are just a few of the artists topping the bill this year. (We might just have to check out G. Love & Special Sauce...what a name).
Grant Park, in downtown Chicago and next to Lake Michigan, will host the 75,000 rockers expected to attend each day.
You can still get three-day passes ($205), but they're going fast. Single day passes are $80 and still available. One main entrance to Grant Park is at 337 E. Randolph Dr.; the box office (across the street from the park) will be open on festival days from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
