Kids at Lollapalooza
Coming to the festival with a youngster? Children aged 10 and under are admitted FREE when accompanied by a ticket-holding adult. There is no limit on the number of kids per adult, within the discretion of the front gate staff.
Safety & Medical
We make every effort to create a safe environment on the festival grounds, including public and private security and medical staff. If you need any assistance, seek out the medical tent, or look for a peace officer or festival staff member.
Also, it can get hot in Grant Park during the summer and heatstroke is not cool. Drink lots of water. Look for free water fountains throughout Grant Park. Wear sunscreen. Red and crispy is so two years ago. Cool off (and freshen up) at the misting areas on site.
