Tom Delonge Criticizes The People Who Attended Lollapalooza Music Festival


Angels & Airwaves frontman and co-founder of Blink-182, Tom DeLonge, shared a photo taken during the Lollapalooza Music Festival and criticized the people who broke the social distancing rules.

Lollapalooza is an annual music festival held in Grant Park, Chicago. It was established by Jane’s Addiction star Perry Farrell in 1991, and the first concert of the festival rated as the best concert of all time by Spin Magazine on the list of ‘The 35 Greatest Concerts of the Last 35 Years.’

Last year, Lollapalooza was a virtual-streaming event, and musicians like Alison Wonderland, H.E.R., Louis the Child, Yungblud, Kali Uchis performed live virtually during the festival. The event also included memorable past performances from Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Run The Jewels, Paul McCartney, and more.

Since the authorities in Illinois announce they will allow live events earlier this year, the four-day music festival took place in Chicago once again, from July 29 to August 1, at Grant Park. According to the recent reports of ABC 7 Chicago, Lollapalooza 2021 became one of the city’s largest events organized following the outbreak of Covid-19, and it drew more than 100.000 people each day.

Recently, Tom DeLonge posted a photo from the festival and drew people’s attention to the crowd who broke social distancing rules. Even though the organizers required people to wear masks at all times, most of the audience members were maskless and were not socially distancing.

Angels & Airwaves star wrote this in his Instagram post:

“Lollapalooza had social-inside-each-other-distancing rules throughout the entire weekend.”
