Lollapalooza 2022: how much do tickets cost and how to buy them?
The four-day music extravaganza Lollapalooza is just around the corner. With just days to go, there are still tickets left for the music festival.
Once again, Lollapalooza will take place in Chicago’s Grant Park for the music festival’s only US location since 2005. Over four days, from Thursday 28 July to Sunday 31 July, some of the biggest names in music will be performing at the iconic music extravaganza.
The event started by Jane’s Addiction front man Perry Farrell in 1991, which is attended by around 400,000 concertgoers, typically sells out each year. With little time to go until the official start of the world-renowned show there are still a range of tickets left. Here’s a look at what they’ll set you back.
Nine stages with nearly 200 artists performing for all tastes
For the main attraction, there over 170 artists playing across eight stages at Lollapalooza 2022 in Chicago’s Grant Park. Concertgoers have the choice between 2-Day and 3-Day General Access bundles or 1-Day and 4-day tickets with different levels of access.
There are four levels of access to Lollapalooza 2022, General Access, General Access Plus, VIP and Platinum. Those that are looking attend the music festival in true luxury through the Destination Experience Hotel Packages, Cabanas or Lolla Insider offered by the concert promoter will have to wait until next year as they’ve all been sold out already.
Children 10 and under are allowed in for free with access to Kidzapalooza. Almost a dozen bands will perform on a ninth stage in Grant Park southeast of Buckingham Fountain along Lake Shore Drive. There is also other entertainment and workshops available for attendees’ young ones.
