For a glance at a little background of the event, here is how they describe it on the website. Lollapalooza now calls the legendary city of Chicago home, having put down roots in the gorgeous green spaces of Grant Park in 2005. As the festival has grown up, it's also grown out. Now it spans over 115 acres, multiple stages, and a ever-more diverse array of more than 130 artists from hip-hop, electronica, reggae, indie, rock, modern roots, and many more. There's always been a passion for rocking responsibly, and Lolla these days is no different, it states.
