Stage Buzz: Lollapalooza 2021 • Day One Photo Gallery

| August 2, 2021

Live music has returned! Lollapalooza celebrated its 30th Anniversary by returning to Chicago’s front yard. There was, however, a palpable mix of emotions that filled Grant Park with the specter of COVID still very much lurking. Proof of vaccination and/or negative test results were required for entry. Those who couldn’t provide either were required to mask up. Still, given all the uncertainties, it quickly became apparent that the masses were starved for live music. Ask, and ye shall receive. Day One’s sweltering humidity didn’t stop emotional performances from the likes of Christian French, Aly & AJ, MAX, Olivia O’Brien, LP, Black Pumas, All Time Low, Ashe, Migrant Motel, Kim Petras, and headliner Steve Aoki.
