Lollapalooza’s contribution to the City of Chicago leads all other festivals in the region. While the festival only takes place over one four-day weekend in the summer, we strive to provide meaningful engagement and impact year-round. Lollapalooza supports the local community in many ways, 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 $2.2 million donation to support arts and education in Chicago Public Schools. In addition, Lollapalooza also partners with After School Matters, hosts an annual Lollapalooza and Sueños Job Fair, 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.
Hulu returns as the official streaming destination of Lollapalooza. Catch four days of select live performances, interviews and much more all weekend long. Full broadcast lineup and schedule to be announced later this summer.
