Every summer, millions of music lovers descend on Chicago for one of the world’s largest music festivals: Lollapalooza!

Held in Grant Park, just a few blocks south of our office, the fun was in full force at this year’s Lolla! Headliners like Paul McCartney and Florence + the Machine brought all kind of music lovers together for a great event!

Lollapalooza’s been around since 1991. It started as a sort of farewell tour for the band Jane’s Addiction, and just took off from there.

It hasn’t always been in Chicago though. The festival used to move around from city to city until 2005 when it moved permanently to Chicago, and turned into the big weekend event that we’ve all come to know and love!
