Police: No Lollapalooza Gate Crashers Even Got In + They Were All Charges

A viral video this weekend showing a group of people attempting to jump the gates at Lollapalooza has garnered differing responses, from cheers of anarchy to warnings about how the youth are ruining festival culture. For whatever it’s worth, according to the Chicago Office of Emergency Management and Communications, not a single fence hopper made it in.


The OEMC released a statement on Friday: “Our robust security plan, which includes multiple layers of fences worked. No one gained entry. Note to anyone who’s thinking about trying it: offenders will be charged with criminal trespass.” All of the approximately 50 persons attempting to enter were arrested — save for the disabled fan who received a weekend pass from Rich The Kid.
