Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot expressed excitement at the festival's return, saying, "Here in Chicago, the word 'Lollapalooza' has always been synonymous with summer, great music, and four days of unforgettable fun — which made last year's decision to postpone it all the more difficult."

She added, "Now, less than a year later and armed with a vaccine that is safe, effective, and widely available, we are able to bring back one of our city's most iconic summer music festivals. I want to thank the Lollapalooza team for working closely with the city to create a reopening strategy that prioritizes safety and can't wait to see festivalgoers return to Grant Park this summer."

In preparation for the event, Allison Arwady, M.D., commissioner of the Chicago Department of Public Health, asked prospective attendees to stay safe and smart. "If you're sick, stay home; wash your hands frequently; wear a mask if you're traveling or using public transit; and most importantly get vaccinated if you haven't already."

Four-day tickets for the festival are on sale at the official Lollapalooza website.
