The Brief: Chicago's annual music festival Lollapalooza is taking place on August 1-4 this year. These memes will give you a taste of what the event is like: including both the highlights and lowlights of attending a massive music festival.
For years, every summer, tens to hundreds of thousands of people gather in Chicago’s Grant Park for Lollapalooza: a 4-day music festival featuring a wide range of popular artists and genres.
This year’s festival will take place from August 1-4. Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino, Twenty One Pilots, The Strokes, and dozens of other well-known artists are set to perform this weekend. Unfortunately, breakout artist Peppa Pig is not on the lineup. It’s 2019 and music festivals like Lollapalooza feature more than just music. This year, Ninja will be playing Fortnite there on Friday.
Lollapalooza 2019 memes range from jokes about the stereotypical attendee to shared feelings of FOMO to excitement about the featured artists.
Juuls, Fanny Packs, Basketball Jerseys, Daisy Dukes, Etc.
In recent years, a significant portion of Lolla attendees is made up of Gen Z’ers, many of whom descend on Chicago from the suburbs or from out of town dressed in their best Lollaopalloza OOTD’s. Cue jokes about homogenous groups of teens trying to navigate the L.

High schoolers from Naperville begin their takeover of Chicago tomorrow. Everyone please proceed with caution. It’s best to not even make eye contact when you come across them. They typically travel in large packs and more than likely look something like this: pic.twitter.com/LJJoUBQIsJ

Lollapalooza outfit planning is easy this year I just look at what the teens on Euphoria wear to geometry class and copy that.

…Boy, there really is a UNIFORM, isn’t there? Loose hair, strappy sandals, faux-bohemian bandeau top, Daisy Dukes.
