    Lollapalooza will celebrate its 25th anniversary during its 2016 festival and to mark the occasion, the event will expand from three music-filled days to four.

    The additional day of music means the 2016 festival will include more than 170 musical performances in Chicago.

    “It’s our 25th Anniversary and we wanted to do something really special and different for our fans,” Lollapalooza founder, Perry Farrell, said in a statement. “There’s a lot of really great music coming out in 2016; with the abundance of talent that wanted to help us celebrate 25 years we got to thinking…‘How are we going to fit all those great artists in one weekend?’ Then we thought about what a special day Thursday has become. When the party can’t wait for the weekend, the movers and shakers make it happen on Thursday! So, we’ve put together an entire additional day of music to celebrate our milestone year. It’s going to be a fantastic party!”

    The event is scheduled to take place from July 28-31. Four-day tickets will be available for $335 and single day general admission tickets will be available for $120 in the spring of 2016, according to the festival’s website.
