Perry Farrell Reacts To The Investigation About Lollapalooza Being A Superspreader Event
Perry Farrell has reacted to a tweet about the recent investigation conducted to find out whether Lollapalooza is a superspreader event or not.
The iconic Lollapalooza festival was founded in 1991 by Perry Farrell, and it evolved into an annual music festival. The event takes place in Grant Park in Chicago, Illinois, and hosts approximately 400,000 people each year. In 2020, the event took place as a live-streamed event on Youtube due to the novel coronavirus. However, this year Lollapalooza returned to celebrate its 30th anniversary.
As for now, Lollapalooza took place with full capacity. The festival celebrated its 30th anniversary with shows that started on July 29, 2021, and ended on August 1, 2021. As seen in some of the footage, an enormous crowd attended this year’s event. For four days, an estimated 100,000 people a day were present at the festival. Hence, experts were worried that it might become a superspreader event.
It has been almost two weeks since the festival ended, and according to ABC News’ tweet, officials found no evidence of a superspreader event stemming from Lollapalooza after an investigation. Although it was reported that there were 203 coronavirus cases linked to the festival, records show that no one was hospitalized.
The investigation also pointed out that most of the people who attended Lollapalooza were vaccinated. Upon seeing ABC News’ tweet, the festival’s founder Perry Farrell breathed a sigh of relief. In his recent tweet, he quoted the news and said he was praying that God would protect them from a possible disaster.
Perry Farrell’s tweet read:
“I was praying that God would protect us; show us a way through… Thank you, God.”
