CHICAGO — Lollapalooza is marking its 25th anniversary in 2016 by expanding the three-day festival to four.

The festival, held in Grant Park, will now feature 170 musical performances due to the additional day.

“It’s our 25th Anniversary and we wanted to do something really special and different for our fans. There’s a lot of really great music coming out in 2016; with the abundance of talent that wanted to help us celebrate 25 years we got to thinking…‘How are we going to fit all those great artists in one weekend?’ Then we thought about what a special day Thursday has become. When the party can’t wait for the weekend, the movers and shakers make it happen on Thursday! So, we’ve put together an entire additional day of music to celebrate our milestone year. It’s going to be a fantastic party!” said Lollapalooza founder, Perry Farrell.

Lollapalooza 2016 will be held Thursday, July 28 and continue through Sunday, July 31.

Four-day General Admission tickets will be available for $335 and single day General Admission tickets will be available for $120 beginning Spring 2016.
