Lollapalooza 2022 will be held in Chicago's Grant Park from July 28–31. The festival celebrated its 30th anniversary last year with 385,000 fans in attendance, the first music gathering of its size to take place in the U.S. following the onset of the pandemic. According to Chicago public health officials, there was no evidence that the event caused a significant increase in the city's COVID rates.
