Lollapalooza's 25th Anniversary Festival in Chicago Stretches to Four Days

The 2016 Lollapalooza promises a bigger festival than ever before with four days and countless bands.

Lollapalooza 2016 marks the grand-daddy rock music festival's 25th anniversary and so the organizers planned to do something big. And in order to accommodate all they wanted, the organizers had to expand the festival to a fourth day. Running from July 28th through the 31st in Chicago's Grant Park, Lollapalooza is a proper extravaganza.

First up, Radiohead. The band hasn't done a proper US tour in ages, and with two nights in NYC before Lolla, the band will return this summer for a handful of shows. If you want to see em, especially when there is a chance they will perform new music, a festival is your best bet.

The other headliners are the Red Hot Chili Peppers, friends of Perry Farrell the Lolla founder and Lolla alums from '92, LCD Soundsystem and J. Cole. But the festival has a far deeper lineup than most and each day has a lot on offer. We're excited to see Chris Stapleton, Classixx, M83, Major Lazer, Grimes, Aurora, Secret Weapons, Daughter, Haitus Kaiyote, Alunageorge and many many more on the lineup.

Sadly tickets for Lolla are now sold out but if you can find some for a decent price from a third party, you may want to pick em up. Twenty-five years is a lot to celebrate. The full lineup and a teaser video are below.
