Lollapalooza offers more than 1,000 free tickets to vaccinated Chicago residents
As a part of the Protect Chicago Music Series, the City of Chicago has unveiled its latest plan to shift out of the pandemic and back into normalcy. In addition to a concert on July 1 featuring The SaveMoney Army—comprised of Vic Mensa, Chance The Rapper, Joey Purp and more Chi-Town natives—the Windy City will also be offering 1,200 free Lollapalooza tickets to vaccinated residents. CDPH Commissioner Allison Arwady, went on record stating,
“As Chicago prepares to reopen, we have to remember that the COVID-19 pandemic is not over, and getting vaccinated is the best way for the city to continue to move forward.” She continues, “We’re excited about these two opportunities to help those who may be on the fence about getting vaccinated to protect themselves, their family and their community.”
The City of Chicago is also turning four vaccination sites into a Lollapalooza experience, each including music from local DJs, custom Lollapalooza giveaways, and passes to a different day of the music festival. A link to passes will be released on Sunday, June 27 on the city’s website and social media platforms. Those who are already vaccinated are also eligible for the free tickets. Passes will be available for pickup on Saturday, July 10 at The House of Blues, in addition to a performance from a to-be-announced Lollapalooza artist. In order to receive the passes, attendees must bring their CDC vaccination card and matching photo ID.
The four-day music festival will be held July 29 to August 1 in Grant Park and will feature headlining performances from the likes of Tyler, The Creator, Illenium, and Megan Thee Stallion, to name a few.
