CHICAGO — Lollapalooza is coming back to Grant Park in late July, Variety reported Thursday.

The festival will take place “at near-to or full-capacity” from Thursday, July 29 to Sunday, Aug. 1.

The entertainment outlet reports that an official announcement, likely with headliners, is expected to come next week.

The state is entering the Bridge Phase of the reopening plan on Friday as places like Wrigley Field are expanding to 60% capacity later this month.

The city has announced a “vax pass” system for fully vaccinated residents to attend summer concerts and events.

At this time, it’s unknown if Lollapalooza will be using the system. The festival was canceled last year amid the pandemic.

In 2019, The Strokes, Tame Impala, Childish Gambino and Ariana Grande were among the headliners.
