More than a month after city officials announced that the popular music festival that draws an estimated 100,000 fans to Grant Park daily over a four-day stretch was being canceled along with the rest of Chicago's summer event schedule due to the coronavirus pandemic, the event's organizers announced a four-night broadcast event on YouTube will replace the live event.
Although ticket sales for an event that typically sells out quickly never got rolling, the musical lineup for the virtual version was also never announced after plans to take the festival virtual were announced. That changed on Monday when a partial list of artists set to appear on the nightly YouTube streaming broadcasts was introduces on Lollapalooza's social media channels.
Just as a heads up:
The complete lineup will be announced on Wednesday, but event organizers said that more than 150 performances will be streamed onto YouTube beginning at 5 p.m. on Thursday.
