Lollapalooza usually goes on for a total of four days and has several different musicians and bands performing during the festival. However, organizers were forced to cancel the festival after the first day, as the National Weather Service warned the public of oncoming storms in the area.

The Chicago Police Department worked with the festival staff as they tried to evacuate everyone from the premises that night. The public was extremely disappointed that the festival had to be called off and many musicians were upset that they had been told they could no longer perform.

The organizers of Lollapalooza have since apologized to the public and released a statement about the cancellation of the concert. They stated that while they were disappointed that the festival had to be canceled, their number one priority was the safety and well-being of the public and artists.

Lorde expressed her sincerest apologies to her fans and promised them that she would return to play her set for the festival-goers. She explained that she had worked extremely hard for the upcoming festival and had her best performance planned for them.
