Lollapalooza's Final Day Cut Show By Severe Weather
Based upon approaching weather, Florence + The Machine, Bassnectar, Kygo and NERO shortened their set times in order for fans to safely exit the festival grounds. More than 89,000 patrons exited as instructed by the various communication platforms put in place as a part of the festival's severe weather plan, as well as directives from public safety personnel onsite.
Severe weather, including lightning, was predicted to approach the area and festival organizers met with public safety officials and held multiple meetings onsite to determine the best course of action throughout the afternoon into the evening.
