Despite oppressive heat, more than 30,000 attended each day of last year's two-day Lollapalooza in Grant Park. It was the first stationary event in the event's history, which stretches back to the first tour in 1991 when Farrell's band, Jane's Addiction, served as headliner.
Lollapalooza is produced by Austin, Texas-based Capital Sports & Entertainment and Charles Attal Presents, who also stage the annual Austin City Limits Festival in September.
