Like just about every other concert or festival in 2020, they were sidelined due to COVID-19.

A little over a year later, concerts and festivals look ready to resume.

News broke yesterday courtesy of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Twitter.

The video features Lightfoot along with CDPH Commissioner Allison Arwady, and Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell announcing Lollapalooza would return to Chicago's Grant Park July 30 through August 2.

Lightfoot says in the Twitter video:

Here in Chicago, the word ‘Lollapalooza’ has always been synonymous with summer, great music, and four days of unforgettable fun – which made last year’s decision to postpone it all the more difficult. Now, less than a year later and armed with a vaccine that is safe, effective, and widely available, we are able to bring back one of our city’s most iconic summer music festivals. I want to thank the Lollapalooza team for working closely with the City to create a reopening strategy that prioritizes safety and can’t wait to see festivalgoers return to Grant Park this summer.

The very end of the video features Dave Grohl, lead singer of Rock N Roll Hall of Fame inductees, Foo Fighters letting everyone know he and the rest of the band are part of the lineup.
