Each summer, Lollapalooza brings the world’s hottest acts to Chicago for three days of nonstop music. Thousands of diehard fans invade Grant Park to hear their favorite bands perform from one of the festival’s stages. Many have experienced Lollapalooza, but few are familiar with its true magnitude.
On August 2, GRAMMY U: Behind the Scenes at Lollapalooza will give members an exclusive chance to observe the inner workings of one of the world’s most massive concert events before it begins. Led by the professionals who are responsible for Lollapalooza’s development and execution, participating students will be treated to a tour of the park’s grounds. As we discuss the various dimensions of Lollapalooza with its crew members, GRAMMY U students will learn that preparation for the festival begins well in advance of the weekend’s first performances.
If you’re interested in attending this event, please e-mail GRAMMYUChicago@grammy.com no later than Friday, July 27. You must be a current member in good standing of GRAMMY U to be considered for this event. Space for this event is extremely limited, and names will be added to the guest list as they are received.
