DOING OUR PART
WATER AND COOLING STATIONS
Fans are encouraged to bring an EMPTY, refillable water bottle to help reduce plastic waste and to show their commitment by tagging #BYOBottle in their Lolla photos! In 2022 fans poured enough water to fill over 690,926 water bottles, bringing the number to over 7.4 million since 2010. Take a break from the sun on our cooling buses by the Medical Tents on Balbo or Jackson or enjoy the breeze from our cooling stations scattered around the park.
Lollapalooza, an Illinois Sustainability Award recipient, is committed to sustainable festival practices in the field, behind the scenes and through the preservation of the ever-beautiful Grant Park. This commitment is integrated into every area of the park, from recycling and composting to eco-friendly service items at Chow Town, and Hydration Stations that provide patrons free, filtered water, diverting millions of plastic bottles from the landfill. Additionally, Lollapalooza will use biodiesel for all generators and equipment and will fund renewable energy projects through carbon offset purchases.
In an effort to create a more sustainable future within the festival sector, Lolla is working to redirect materials away from Chicago’s landfills this year. These materials will be collected and distributed throughout the local community to promote positive change, and a better quality of life for our neighbors.
HELP REDUCE WASTE WITH REVERB
REVERB is excited to support Lollapalooza’s efforts to build a more sustainable music industry at the festival through the Divert It! composting program. While onsite, REVERB volunteers will be educating and engaging fans in the fight to reduce food waste, an often-overlooked driver of global climate change. Additionally, REVERB volunteers will help run the YETI Hydration Stations and Rock & Recycle program.
We invite attendees to join our sustainability efforts to reduce the festival’s impact on the environment by participating in recycling initiatives such our Rock and Recycle Program, where fans can earn a commemorative Lollapalooza t-shirt, diverting waste from going into the landfill by composting your food waste and other compostables, refilling your EMPTY water bottles to reduce plastic waste and taking eco-friendly transportation to the festival. Be sure to use the proper bins to dispose of your waste, recyclables and compostables at the festival.
We have teamed up with TURN to help tackle the problem of single-use plastic waste. Fans can support sustainability and return their cup for the chance to win exclusive prizes, like Ticket upgrades, festival cash, and more! To get started, fans can register their wristband with TURN at customer.turnus.in/link-events/wristband. At the festival, they just enjoy a drink and return their cups to designated bins around the site for a chance to win. If selected, they’ll receive a text with details on how to redeem their reward at the phone number registered on their wristband.
This year, Lollapalooza will be testing renewable energy options including solar and battery hybrid technologies, in hopes of paving the way to reducing emissions at our festival in years to come. We have also partnered withBillie Eilish and environmental non-profit REVERB to use solar powered, intelligent battery systems for her headlining performance on Thursday. More here.
COMMITMENT TO THE COMMUNITY
Lollapalooza works to introduce Chicago youth to the diverse creative opportunities in the festival industry and reduce barriers to arts access in Chicago schools. In 2021, Lollapalooza reaffirmed its commitment to the city with the creation of the Lollapalooza Arts Education Fund, a $2.2M donation to support arts education in Chicago Public Schools (CPS). Distributed through local nonprofit, Ingenuity, the funds will support more than 100,000 CPS students through 2026. Outside the classroom, Lollapalooza’s partnership with After School Matters supports after-school and summer programs that provide Chicago teens with opportunities to learn new artistic skills and display their artworks at Lollapalooza. In addition, Lolla hosts youth from across the city to participate in Immersion Day, a half-day event that gives Chicago teens a behind-the-scenes tour of the Lollapalooza grounds and provides an intro to event production through hands-on learning experiences led by the festival organizers. Lolla provides post-secondary opportunities through the Lollapalooza & Sueños Festival Job Fair, a networking event that highlights employment opportunities at Chicago festivals and pathways to careers in the creative sector for students at City Colleges of Chicago, one of the largest community college systems in the country. Through community engagement efforts, Lollapalooza received and responded to Chicago residents’ requests for improved communal spaces by fully funding the Grant Park Tennis and Pickleball Court Project. In addition, Lollapalooza engages its Chicago arts and culture community year-round through ongoing partnerships with the African American Heritage Festival, TIP Fest, Musically Fed, Black Culture Fest, and more.
AFTER SCHOOL MATTERS STUDENTS CONTRIBUTE TO LOLLA
For the third year, Lollapalooza is partnering with After School Matters to introduce Chicago teens to various creative careers in the festival industry. This spring and summer sessions, 35 ASM teens in multiple programs dedicated their program sessions to creating designs and artwork for the 2023 Lollapalooza festival. Teens worked closely with the Lolla team to discuss branding and their concepts including creating more than 30 graphic designs displayed throughout the festival. The poster wall around the site as well as the scrims at the front Entrance on Michigan were designed by students. In addition, the muralist students designed and painted the Perry’s container located on Columbus Ave.
Lollapalooza is pleased to partner with Musically Fed this year. Musically Fed works with artists, promoters, management, and venues nationwide to donate unused backstage meals to community organizations that feed the homeless, hungry and food insecure. Those passionate about ending hunger can contribute to this life saving work at www.musicallyfed.org.
Hulu is the official streaming destination of Lollapalooza 2023. Beginning Thursday, August 3 through the end of the festival, Hulu subscribers will be able to tune into the select performances, backstage interviews and much more at no additional cost. Watch and see the full schedule at hulu.com/lollapalooza.
This year Lollapalooza is bringing over 50 Official Aftershows featuring incredible artists to venues throughout Chicago, keeping fans rocking even after the festival gates have closed.
