The city of Chicago finally announced on Tuesday (June 9), that all large, permitted outdoor events have been canceled through Labor Day (Sept. 7).
Mayor Lori Lightfoot said in a press release: “We must provide ways for people to enjoy the spirit of a Chicago summer while prioritizing health and safety. As difficult as it is to remove these in-person events from our calendar, we are pulling out all the stops for an inventive, engaging and fun festival season this summer.”
Soon after the news broke, Lollapalooza posted a statement on its site and Instagram account. "We wish we could bring Lollapalooza to Grant Park again this year, but we understand why things can't move forward as planned. ... Rest assured, 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."
