Top 3 Things to do this Weekend in the Loop
The Loop is full of exciting things for you to do this weekend!
Lollapalooza is back for its 25th year! The festival features over 170 bands from around the world, an art market and food from the Chicago area. The lineup for this four-day event includes Lana Del Rey, Red Hot Chili Peppers, M83 and Ellie Goulding. Though Lollapalooza tickets are sold out, you can still enjoy the show thanks to Red Bull TV. There are also many aftershows going on around the city this weekend, and for those that are sold out, there are chances to win tickets.
Disney’s “Newsies” is back in Chicago! Follow Jack Kelly, a newsboy in New York during the late 1800s, and his fellow newsies as they come together to stand up to the most powerful men in New York. This Tony Award-winning musical for Best Score and Best Choreography is based on the Newsboy Strike of 1899.
If you’re looking to take your weekend plans to a new level, check out one of the rooftop bars in the Loop. Grab some friends and head up for some food, drinks and fun with some of the best views of Chicago.
