No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you. Lollapalooza will be extending to a four-day weekend next year to celebrate the festival’s 25th anniversary.
The 2016 festival will kick off in Grant Park on Thursday, July 28th and continue though Sunday, July 31st. The announcement came earlier today via the official Lollapalooza website along with a statement from Lolla founder Perry Farrell:
“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!”
Tickets for Lolla 2016 won’t be available for purchase until next spring, but the prices for general admission passes have already been revealed — 4-day general admission tickets will cost you $335 (including fees), while single day general admission tickets are $120 (including fees).
Another full day of Lolla? Now that’s how you celebrate 25 years strong. Stay tuned for more information on Lollapalooza 2016 and expect the lineup rumors to start any moment now. Ha!
