One of the oldest and most famous alternative music festivals is a must-visit!


One of the most famous alternative rock festivals, Lollapalooza featured Red Hot Chili Papers, Smashing Pumpkins, Eminem, Depeche Mode, Muse, Radiohead, and Lana Del Ray. Not only the renowned musicians and artists but also plenty of food and performances are waiting for you to join the fun!

In 2022, Lollapalooza features over 170 bands on nine stages. According to the festival's schedule, Metallica and Lil Baby will headline Lollapalooza on its first day. Dua Lipa, Machine Gun Kelly, Kygo, Doja Cat, J. Cole, and Green Day are also scheduled to perform during a four-day festival. The 2022 lineup includes bands like Jane’s Addiction, Glass Animals, Rezz, Billy Strings, Big Sean, Zhu, The Kid Laroi, and Idles.

The tickets, which went on sale on April 27th, include single-day general admission for $125 and four-day general admission tickets for $350. The ultimate Lollapalooza experience comes with the Platinum tickets, which provide access to luxurious, climate-controlled lounges with cocktails and food. A one-day Platinum Pass is available for $2,000, while four-day Platinum tickets start at $4,200.

Founded in 1991 by Perry Farrell, Jane's Addiction singer, as a farewell tour for his band, but Lollapalooza became so successful that it ran annually. In 2010 it made its debut outside the United States, in Santiago. A year later the Brazilian version in São Paulo has followed. In the next two years, it conquered Buenos Aires and Berlin.

The festival is attended by 160.000 people during several days. It is traditionally held at Grant Park.
