"The vaccine policy that we have, people have to be vaccinated or tested is showing to be a huge success," says @LiveNation Pres. Joe Berchtold. "Over 90% who attended Lollapalooza were fully vaccinated. 12% said they got vaccinated because they wanted to come to the festival."
Unlike Lollapalooza in Chicago, the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally was the perfect storm for a vaccine-era superspeader event
In Chicago, Lollapalooza organizers required proof of vaccination or a negative test. 90% of attendees were fully vaccinated. Despite hosting 385,000, so far, only 203 attendees have tested positive for COVID-19, or about 0.05% of people who attended
Chicago health officials say Lollapalooza was not a superspreader event, with 203 coronavirus cases linked to the four-day music festival and no hospitalizations or deaths. Attendees were required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test.
Lollapalooza kicked off at Chicago's Grant Park on Thursday. Organizers are expecting 110,000 people a day for the four-day music festival – the biggest event since the city reopened.
