Lollapalooza won’t have fans bum-rushing the gates this year, due to the pandemic, but there will still be a festival … it’s just gonna be virtual, and could be a sign of things to come for Coachella.
Organizers of the annual music festival held in Chicago announced Tuesday they won’t be able to hold the weekend-long block party after all … this after Chi-Town scrapped all large, permitted outdoor events through Labor Day.
Lollapalooza 2020, scheduled for July 30 to Aug. 2, isn’t being postponed … but instead is moving online, with virtual performances from around Chicago and beyond, plus throwbacks to some of the best Lolla sets and never-before-seen footage from the ’90s.
Instead of just pushing the concert dates back — a la Coachella moving from April to October — Lollapalooza says “we will be working hard behind the scenes to deliver Chicago a spectacular celebration of Lollapalooza’s 30th anniversary in the summer of 2021, and we can’t wait to celebrate with you.”
Lollapalooza ain’t alone in this predicament … Burning Man as you know it is also canceled by COVID-19, and now all eyes are on Coachella.
