Lollapalooza Was Evacuated For Severe Weather And The Pictures Are Insane

This is what you call a sea of people.

CHICAGO -- Ever wonder what it looks like when 100,000 people are all forced to leave one place simultaneously? Well, thanks to some severe weather concerns during Lollapalooza's third day on Sunday (August 2), now we have the picture.

A lot of pictures, actually.

We don't know exactly how many people were in the park when the evacuation call came around 2:30 p.m. CT, but estimates anticipated 100,000 for each of the three days -- and it sure looks like that many.

Or maybe more?


This video gives an on-the-ground sense of the commotion.

And of course it was bumper-to-bumper getting back in once the gates opened again at 3:30 p.m.

That wasn't an issue for some people, though -- like this guy, who hid in the Porta Potty.

Luckily, there weren't any cancellations as a result of the hold-up. The schedule was updated by festival organizers and each artist was pushed back about 45 minutes.
