3 official tweets the other day seem to hint at in depth planning for a possible postponement/2021 bump, while keeping the August 1st weekend slightly open. Chicago is starting their C19 hot spot status.
Mar 24, 2020 Right around this time every year, we come together to celebrate the announcement of another incredible Lollapalooza lineup. For now, we are at home, taking care of each other, listening to music, and dreaming of summertime in Chicago. (1/3)
While we stay in close contact with local officials, we are well underway with planning for Lolla to take place as soon as it’s safe for us all to be together in Grant Park. (2/3)
We will provide updates as soon as we can. Until then, please stay home and take care of yourself and each other. We can’t wait to see you! (3/3)
I guess when they said announcement by end of last week they meant this week. Or next week. Not sure why they are delaying the cancellation.
I mean does it really matter? Who in their right minds would go to this festival now anyway lol (don't answer that because I know some morons would). We should just assume that it is cancelled and move on
I don't think we'll get any formal announcement until things settle down in Chicago. The city has more pressing issues to deal with than officially canceling some festivals, and Lolla will seem tone deaf talking about this right now/may need to defer to the city.
