Lollapalooza was held this past weekend in Chicago, with an estimated 100,000 people flocking to the city’s Grant Park for each day of the four-day music festival.
After the festival was canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, revelers enjoyed sets from acts such as Miley Cyrus, Post Malone, the Foo Fighters, and Megan Thee Stallion. (Organizers canceled a planned appearance by DaBaby following outrage at the rapper’s recent anti-gay statements.)
Organizers required attendees to wear masks at any indoor spaces, and all guests had to show either proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test in order to enter the festival. (Some 600 people were turned away on Thursday, the festival’s first day, for not having either).
These photos give a sense of the massive turnout for Lollapalooza, which was one of the biggest public gatherings in the US since the start of the pandemic.
