Lollapalooza starts in a few days and this time the city is prepared to handle an unpredictable forecast.

This time the city will have three weather shelters available in the event of extreme weather.

The city recommends concertgoers head to the three underground garages with entrances along Michigan Avenue.

The city will also have cooling buses parked outside Grant Park just in case it gets too hot.
