Cold War Kids
and Arctic Monkeys
are a few of the acts who will help fill Chicago with music both before Lollapalooza
opens its doors and after the headliners have left the stage.
Lollapalooza is set for Aug. 5-7 at Chicago’s Grant Park. The Lollapalooza Aftershows take place in various venues around the Windy City Aug. 3-6. The majority of aftershows booked during the festival begin at 10 p.m., which corresponds to the time the event shuts down for the night.
