Lollapalooza 2008 Almost 300,000 people, watching 120 performers, in 90-degree weather, on eight stages ... in one weekend. This year’s Lollapalooza was the biggest, hottest, and most eclectic - not to mention most photogenic -since the festival anchored itself to Chicago’s Grant Park four years ago.
