Lollapalooza returned to Grant Park to Chicago on July 28-31 with high expectations to exceed. This year was the first year the festival would be held for four days, in honor of its 25th Anniversary.
With an additional day added this year, it was inevitable that it would bring additional chaos. I personally noticed a lot more teenagers flooding the fields of Grant Park this year compared to previous years, as well as a steady flow of attendees in and out of the medical tent. Despite the immense amount of teenagers I had to maneuver around and the ridiculous amount of money I spent on beer, I still had a fantastic time.
Knowing myself, I think I will end up attending all four days again next year, even though going all four days was left me a shell of a human being. I did an after show this year for the first time ever on Saturday night, which was a bit of overkill for me. It made Sunday even more exhausting!
This is a long post, so bear with me.
