As the four-day Lollapalooza music festival got underway and drew huge crowds, social media went into a frenzy. Some 1,00,000 people could be seen in photos, and most were without a mask and not at all socially distanced. The festival received a go-ahead despite a surge of cases due to delta variants across the nation. Though organisers had asked attendees to wear masks at any indoor place, and all guests had to show either proof of vaccination or a negative COVID report to enter the festival. 
Unfortunately, seeing the photos from the festival was a blatant invitation of the virus, and some, in fact, called in a nightmare.

 


Lollapalooza is an annual four-day music festival held in Grant Park in Chicago, Illinois. The festival, which started as a touring event in 1991, now has music genres that include but are not limited to alternative rock, heavy metal, punk rock, hip hop, and electronic music.
