Today’s post is a little different from my usual blogs, since it’s not directly about travel. Not unless you count going to Chicago to attend a rock music festival travel!
Lollapalooza began as an annual touring festival back in 1991, and is today held each year in up to six different cities, spanning three continents. But since 2005, the festival’s undisputed home has been Chicago.
For one weekend a year, Grant Park in downtown Chicago temporarily becomes one of the biggest music venues in the World. The event lasts three or four days, with a diverse range of performers taking part on multiple stages.
We attended for just one day (the Sunday) back in 2009, and got to see a bunch of artists including The Killers, Lou Reed and The Kaiser Chiefs, as these photos show.
