Chicago Host made $3.3 mm during Lollapalooza in 2018

In Chicago, the hosting community made $3.3 million during the Lollapalooza Music Festival. Each of the 19,000 guests that graced our fair city spent over $171 per day at restaurants and retail stores, with half that money remaining in the neighborhood where the home is located. Specifically, the South Side neighborhoods saw boom in occupants due to its close proximity to Grant Park. The average South Side host earned $465 over the four-day music extravaganza, with Bronzeville, Woodlawn and Pilsen benefitting most.
