CHICAGO — Music website Consequence of Sound describes Lollapalooza, one of the largest alternative music festivals in the country, as a “metropolis.” The festival is held in Chicago and consumes 319 acres of Grant Park with eight separate stages every year. Sold-out Lollapalooza 2014, which took place August 1-3, featured “Eminem, Outkast, Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, Skrillex, Calvin Harris, Lorde, Foster the People, Krewella, Nas and more.”
Since 1991, Lollapalooza has teamed up with non-profits and cause-oriented organizations to promote issues like registering to vote and fighting global poverty. This year Lollapalooza teamed up with organizations ONE and Oxfam.
