Taking an unfortunate hit from Mother Nature’s latest precipitation blitz, the organizers behind Lollapalooza made the call to pull the plug on first day of the event. Initially given a glimmer of hope, festival-goers were told to make their way towards the nearest exits, however it was shortly made clear that the event would not re-open its doors for the remainder of the night. While circumstances remained unfavorable for the thousands of attendees, the four-day event is set to blaze on with performances from DJ Snake, Kaskade, Justice, and Chi-town native Chance The Rapper throughout the span of the weekend.
Tonight’s performances will not resume. Please make your way toward shelter, away from Grant Park. pic.twitter.com/3BTAU2Lhf1
