Four of the city’s vaccination sites on this date will be known as “Lollapalooza experiences”, with DJs performing and ticket giveaways taking place.

Festival producer Charlie Walker said: “Lollapalooza has called Chicago home for the past 16 years, and we truly love this vibrant city. We are pleased to partner with and support the city to encourage vaccinations.”

In order to attend the festival, ticketholders must either be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 or provide a negative test.
