The box office also has a new location at the intersection of Ida B. Wells Drive & Michigan Avenue.  Hours are Wednesday, July 31st: 12pm – 7pm, Thursday, August 1st – Sunday, August 4th: 10am – 9pm.

Another exciting bit of news was the announcement of a live stream of select Lolla sets. While the lineup of artists hasn't been revealed yet, it provides those unable to make it to Grant Park the chance to take part in the fest.
