As one of the first major festivals to return amidst the ever-changing pandemic, Chicago’s Mayor Lori Lightfoot and festival organizers feel that all the right safety measures are in place as the COVID-19 Delta variant has begun to surge.

The Foo FightersMiley Cyrus, Post Malone, and Tyler, The Creator are headlining the 2021 festival after Lollapalooza’s 2020 date was canceled due to COVID-19 healthy and safety measures.

Festival attendees have to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of entry to get onto the grounds.
Additionally, masks are encouraged.

Steve Bernas, the head of Chicago’s Better Business Bureau, has warned of scammers not only selling scalped tickets but also, scalped vaccine cards. Bernas said, “We anticipate a double whammy this year not only the tickets but also the vaccine cards. The scammers will be out in full force.”
