Quantity? Check. With about 100,000 attendees per day, it is surely one of the most densely populated weekends in the city. Mobility? Check. People have to keep treading over 115 acres to see the 130-plus featured artists. Quality? Check. You need to be truly committed to attend Lollapalooza, and that kind of effort goes into dressing as well. Variety? Check. Coming from all corners of the world and ranging from the fashionable to the bizarre, most try to bring their best (casual) game. Plus there’s the extremely cute Kidzapalooza crowd.
