Good afternoon, Chicago.

Lollapalooza opened in Grant Park today for its annual four days of music, crowds and revelry with the main entrance chutes on Michigan Avenue loosening up for fest-goers a bit before 11 a.m. The Day 1 headliner is Billie Eilish on the T-Mobile mainstage, along with Karol G on the Bud Light stage on the north side of the park.

By one measure, this is the biggest Lollapalooza ever. See photos from Day 1.
