Summer time Chi Ah! (Now throw yo' hands up in the sky)

Summer time Chi Ah! (Now throw yo' hands up in the sky)

Chicago is healing and everything is all gas no brakes when summer hits Chicago.

As the U.S. moves closer to reopening seemingly every day, it looks like a big step forward will come in mid-summer, when the Lollapalooza Festival will return to Chicago with a four-day event at its usual place and date range — Grant Park, July 29-August 1 — sources tell Variety. The city of Chicago gave the event the greenlight at near-to or -full-capacity, insiders report, and an official announcement, likely with headliners, is expected to come next week.
