The City of Chicago gave away 500 four-day Lollapalooza passes to vaccinated Chicagoans and single-day passes to individuals who were vaccinated at designated “Lolla Day” events – in addition to a free ticket to a special concert at the House of Blues on July 10th featuring Lollapalooza performers Drama and Dos Santos.

A partnership between Lollapalooza Chicago, Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE), the Lollapalooza Chicago Protect Chicago Music Series Concert at House of Blues is a benefit for Chicagoans who have received a COVID-19 vaccine.

We highly encourage picking-up your Lolla pass in-person on Saturday, July 10, at a free show at the House of Blues.  This is the most secure method to ensure you receive your Lolla pass.  If you are unable to attend, Lolla passes will be mailed.

Taking COVID-19 seriously at Lollapalooza

  • Get vaccinated! (Getting vaccinated now will still give you some protection for Lollapalooza weekend – though if you are not Fully Vaccinated, you will still need a negative test)
  • Bring your vaccine card or proof of negative COVID-19 test within the last 72 hours
  • Reminder from the FBI: If you make or buy a fake COVID-19 vaccination record card, you endanger yourself and those around you, and you are breaking the law
  • Wear a mask if you are unvaccinated
  • If you are unvaccinated or at high risk for severe COVID-19, avoid crowded areas of the festival and stay at least 6 feet away from other groups
  • Activate your wristband and register for Cashless so that you can make purchases at the festival with your wristband
  • Avoid physical contact with people outside of your party
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, or with hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol
  • Limit consumption of substances. Consuming alcohol or substances may make you less likely to follow COVID-19 safety measures
  • Do not attend Lollapalooza if you have symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea), even if you have been vaccinated
  • Do not attend Lollapalooza if you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days. People who have tested positive for COVID-19 and cannot attend the festival can receive a refund
  • Remember that shows outside of the festival may have different COVID-19 protocols
  • Outdoor music events are safer than indoor events
  • Outdoor dining options are safer than indoor dining options
  • If you are attending an indoor event and are unvaccinated, wear a mask and maintain 6-foot distance from other parties
  • Stay home and get tested if you develop any symptoms of COVID-19, even if you are fully vaccinated
