Lollapalooza’s contribution to the City of Chicago leads all festivals in the region. While the festival takes place over a four-day weekend in the summer, organizers strive to deliver meaningful engagement programs and create positive impacts in the city year-round. Lollapalooza works to support the local community in various areas, with a focus on introducing Chicago youth to creative opportunities in the festival industry and reducing barriers to arts access in Chicago schools. Reaffirming this commitment, organizers created the Lollapalooza Arts Education Fund, a $2.2M donation to support arts and education in Chicago Public Schools. In addition, Lollapalooza partners with local nonprofits including Community Goods and Yollocalli to integrate art by Chicago youth into the festival, hosts the annual Lollapalooza and Sueños Festival Job Fair to increase access to careers in the festival industry, and engages with the Chicago arts and culture community year-round through ongoing partnerships with the African American Heritage Festivals, Teens in the Park Fest, Black Culture Fest, and Musically Fed. As a part of Lollapalooza’s commitment to community relations, the festival has also improved communal spaces by funding the Grant Park Tennis and Pickleball Court Project.

Lollapalooza has elevated its commitment to protecting the planet through a new global partnership with Re:wild, a nonprofit that has protected more than 400 million acres of wild lands around the world, benefitting more than 30,000 species. Lollapalooza is supporting Re:wild and its local partners by providing festival space for them to speak directly with music fans, and financially supporting Re:wild projects at Lolla festivals around the world. Because one of the most effective actions individuals can take to protect wildlife is eating a plant-based diet, Re:wild is working with Lollapalooza Chicago to offer more of these options at this year’s festival, and will have an activation onsite to interact with music fans.

Having recently made its premiere at the 2024 Sundance Film Festival, LOLLA; THE STORY OF LOLLAPALOOZA takes a look at how a Jane’s Addiction farewell tour transformed into a massive cultural cornerstone and shaped music festivals as a whole for generations to come. The three-part docu-series features first-hand accounts from Lollapalooza founder and Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell and will premiere on Paramount+ later this year.

Lollapalooza is generously supported by T-Mobile, Bud Light, IHG® Hotels & Resorts, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, BACARDÍ, PayPal, Venmo, Toyota, BMI and Lifeway Kefir.

Launched by founder Perry Farrell in 1991 as a touring festival, Lollapalooza remains an innovator in festival culture over 30 years later. Lollapalooza was the first festival to bring together artists from a wide range of musical genres on one bill, it was also the first to travel, the first to expand to multiple days, the first to introduce a second stage, the first to blend art and activism, the first to offset its carbon emissions, the first to put electronic music artists on the main stage, the first to create family friendly programming, the first to make its home in an urban city center and the first to expand internationally.

Lollapalooza has grown into an annual world-class festival in Chicago (2005), as well as in culturally rich countries including Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Germany, France, Sweden and India. Lollapalooza is one of the premiere music destinations for music fans in the United States and abroad. The Chicago edition features more than 170 bands on 8 stages during four full days of music.

In 2023, Lollapalooza contributed $434 million to the Chicago economy and supported the equivalent of 3,197 full time jobs. Additionally, the festival generated $6.8 million in amusement tax revenue for the Chicago economy the same year.
