Lollapalooza, where do I start… This concert is an amazing experience, it features some of the best artists from all sorts of genres. Lollapalooza goes all over the world but when they come to Chicago, Illinois it is special. Last year Travis Scott, Bruno Mars and The Weekend were some of the headliners, they tore up the stage all through the night. These are just a few of the big name artists, there are over one-hundred more. This concert is usually held at Grant Park in the heart of Chicago.  Roughly every year there are about 100,000 people in attendance, plus a pretty crazy crowd of people that Chicago holds. The event is always in the start of August for four days. This year it is on august 1st all the way through the 4th. People who attend this concert come from all over the wold. This is due to Lollapaloozas large variety of music. It ranges from hip hop and rap all the way to alternative pop. Drawing in large crowd of different races and cultures. Lollapalooza is a place that people can be themselves and share that moment with people who have the same music interest as them. Many of the people who attend come in large groups of friends. They all get together and spend four whole days dancing and singing along to their favorite artists. One thing Lollapalooza does to prevent these large crowds from getting overheated and dehydrated is putting tents all around the area. Here, people can buy water and food to ensure their physical health is good. Still, with the water and food availability, there still are those people who pass out from the extreme heat August brings. One exciting thing Lollapalooza provides, is the opportunity for people to meet their favorite artists and singers. This does cost extra, but people get to experience a once in a lifetime event that they will never forget. One thing many people don’t know about the name Lollapalooza is the reasoning behind it. It means an extraordinary or unusual thing. This is exactly why so many people are seen attending this event. Overall, this famous music festival leaves a long lasting imprint on all who attend. Everyone can’t wait to see what Lollapalooza 2019 will bring.
