Because of an approaching storm and warnings from the National Weather Service, Lollapalooza organizers and the City of Chicago ended the first day of the festival early. Festivalgoers were evacuated from Grant Park and are being directed by staff and the Chicago Police Department to pre-established underground evacuation and shelter sites along Michigan Avenue, according the Office of Emergency Management.

โ€œWe are disappointed to have to end todayโ€™s performances early, however our first priority is the safety of our fans, staff and artists,โ€ said Sandee Fenton, Director of Publicity for C3 Presents, the promoter behind Lollapalooza.
