Chicago to Offer Free Lollapalooza Passes to 1200 Vaccinated Chicago Residents
If you’re a Chicago resident and unvaccinated, there’s no time like now to get it done. Lollapalooza will distribute 1,200 free tickets to people who get vaccinated there on Saturday, June 26th.
Four vaccination sites in the windy city will transform into micro Lollapalooza experiences. DJs will spin music from the artists performing at the landmark festival while participants wait to be vaccinated.
Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot has dubbed June 16th ‘Lolla Day.’ And the City of Chicago has partnered directly with the festival to increase vaccines as the US continues to reopen. As of Friday, June 18th 48% of eligible Chicago residents have completed the vaccine series. And 54% have received at least one dose, according to the City of Chicago.
Each of the four vaccine sites will offer passes to a different day of the festival. According to the Lolla Day website, those who get a free pass also get an extra incentive. “Getting vaccinated on Lolla Day scores you a free show at the House of Blues - where you will be picking up your single day Lollapalooza pass.”
The festival will also announce a program to offer tickets to already fully vaccinated people on June 27.
Lollapalooza plans to move forward this year July 29-August 1 at Grant Park in Chicago. The lineup includes Tchami, Illenium, Alison Wonderland, Justin Jay, VNSSA, LP Giobbi, and more.
Vaccination via the Lolla Day program is only available to Chicago residents. For more information, visit the official website.
