After starting out as a touring carnival in 1991 and redefining the American festival, Lollapalooza grew up and settled down in 2005, planting its roots in Chicago. In the decade since, the summer music festival has expanded, from two days to three, and from half of Grant Park to all of Grant Park. Over those ten years, DJs have infiltrated the bills, bringing some nightclub energy to an event that really, really loves to book the Black Keys, Jack White and My Morning Jacket (count 'em up below).
Considering that Lollapalooza is hitting its diamond anniversary with our city, it's time to look back through the highs and lows and rank every Lollapalooza in Chicago. No, we're not counting the touring '90s ones, because those were obviously cooler.
