What’s the Lollapalooza Weather Like?
Asking yourself what’s the Lollapalooza weather like? First, let’s check in with Chicago local and Lolla vet.
“Chicago weather is bogus. Expect rain at least once. But expect it to stop raining shortly after, then get incredibly hot. The year I went, it was incredibly rainy and overcast when I left my house, rained for the first two hours, then turned into the sweltering, humid summer we all know and love. I was in cut-offs and a long sleeved oxford shirt. I passed out from the heat. Take a lesson from me. Never wear long sleeves.”
So what can we really take away from that? Chicago weather is incredibly temperamental during the summer months. Because conditions can be so erratic, you’ll want to ensure you dress appropriately – don’t be fooled by cloudy or rainy conditions – and, like virtually any other music festival, stay adequately hydrated.
Water and adaptability can help you survive the elements at Lollapalooza. We only suggest you mentally prepare yourself for some bipolar Chicago classic weather, knowing full well that the rain could roll through and shake things up at any time. Ask any Lollapalooza fan — it hardly tarnishes the experience.
