Day three of Lollapalooza kicked off Saturday as thousands returned to Grant Park for another day of sun and music.

Amid the numerous COVID-19 safety restrictions in place for the festival, Friday night saw the release of a new indoor mask requirement by Lollapalooza organizers.

The areas include the box office, merchandise shop, two hospitality lounges and wristband help tents.

If you missed our coverage of the festival’s second day, check out our reviews of Tyler, the Creator, Mick Jenkins, Omar Apollo and more, as well as our photo highlights from Friday and our reviews from Thursday, including Miley Cyrus’ opening night set here.

Lolla is the largest public event to date held in Chicago since the emergence of the coronavirus last March.

COVID-19 hospitalizations increased by 35% across Illinois during a week that saw cases jump 46%, public health officials reported Friday.

City health officials said that they’d adopt new indoor masking guidelines set by the CDC as cases spike in Chicago, too.

Despite worries over the virus’ Delta variant and rising caseloads nationally, the show is continuing, with the final day set for Sunday.

We’ve got the festival covered from every angle. For a complete guide to all things Lolla, check out our guide here. If you want our tips of the acts to catch, you can find our Top 10 picks here. And keep in mind, there are gobs of street closures in place; you can find the details here.
