official opinions: biggest Lollapalooza ever around the corner!

Yes, it’s back.  Chicago’s largest music festival of the year is here again, Lollapalooza, and it’s bigger and better than ever before!

If you have waited on buying tickets, I’m sorry to report that you are too late.  The massive event sold out in late July with 90,000 tickets sold for each of the three days.  That makes a grand total of 270,000 tickets purchased.  This is a full 30,000 more than last year.  So if you are going, plan for a crowd!

The festival, which began as a traveling festival that made stops all over the U.S., found a home here in Chicago’s beautiful Grant Park in 2005.  Since then, Lollapalooza has consistently grown and proven to be a huge draw for visitors to the city.

The dates for the 2011 Lolla are set for this weekend, August 5-7.  Over 130 artists will be performing on various stages for the enormous crowd (and thankfully the weather doesn’t look too bad!)

For anyone lucky enough to have tickets for this highly anticipated event, here are 3 things you shouldn’t miss during your time at Lollapalooza.

1.)  “The Dell Lounge”:  This new festival feature is an air conditioned (woo-hoo!) tent that displays live video feed from multiple stages around the festival, as well as unique youtube productions made just for the 2011 Lolla.  Experience this high-tech addition to the fest, but make sure you get out there in the action too!

2.)  Ellie Goulding:  Although she’s not one of the biggest names this year, this British songbird is a rising star and well worth seeing.  The 24-year-old Ellie has a voice that is both beautiful and unique.  Many of her songs are also known for having highly revered techno or electronic remixes.

3.) “Uncorked”:  A great option for older guests to the festival and all wine lovers is the uncorked tent (also air conditioned!)  This spacious tent provides comfortable patio seating and a variety of wines from around the world, all while giving you a view of the festival stages.

These are just a few of the great types of live entertainment that will be offered this weekend at Lollapalooza!  Make sure you get around to see it all at this record breaking Chicago music festival.
