Lollapalooza is celebrating its 25th birthday this year by adding a fourth day to the Chicago-centric festival in 2016. Held in the city’s heart of Grant Park, the concert will now feature over 170 musical acts over a four-day span. Jane’s Addiction frontman and Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell had this to say:
“It’s our 25th Anniversary and we wanted to do something really special and different for our fans. There’s a lot of really great music coming out in 2016; with the abundance of talent that wanted to help us celebrate 25 years we got to thinking…’How are we going to fit all those great artists in one weekend?’ Then we thought about what a special day Thursday has become. When the party can’t wait for the weekend, the movers and shakers make it happen on Thursday! So, we’ve put together an entire additional day of music to celebrate our milestone year. It’s going to be a fantastic party!”
