Welcome to GA+!
We are so happy you will be joining us in Grant Park! GA+ is a great way to enjoy Lollapalooza, and we are going to do everything we can to make sure you have the time of your life. On this page, you’ll find everything you need to know about the GA+ program plus other important details about general festival policies. Please be sure to read through it and to send it to everyone in your group so they are also in-the-know. We can’t wait to see you soon!
Bypass the crowds at the main gates and enter Lollapalooza through the VIP/GA+ entrance. Look for the entryway called VIP/GA+ Entrance at the corner of Van Buren and S. Michigan Ave. Go through this entryway and follow the signs to the VIP/GA+ gate, where you will have your ticket scanned and bag checked. From there, it’s a quick walk over to the GA+ Lounges.

How to Dress & What to Bring
Dress for comfort and be sure to check the weather forecast before you head out the door.

If your wristbands were not mailed to you and are at Will Call, you can pick them up at the Festival Box Office. A government-issued ID is required to verify your order and pick up tickets.
Wristband activation ensures a smooth process when entering the festival each day and allows you to add emergency contact information to your wristband. All you need to do is enter your wristband ID number (located on the inside of your wristband) and contact info to activate.
