The 17th installment of the wildly-popular Lollapalooza music festival kicked off on Friday.
Well over 100 artists are on the bill, so it’s a safe bet that the three-day fest has a little something for everyone. But DNAinfo Chicago pointed out the event may just provide big headaches for those who weren’t lucky enough to score a ticket for the sold-out show.
In an early celebration of National Ice Cream Day on Sunday, ride-share company Uber on Friday was delivering frozen treats throughout Chicago.

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle gave a speech to a packed room during a Thursday City Club of Chicago event even though a high-stakes World Cup soccer match between the United States and Germany was taking place at the same time.
“I’m glad, maybe a little surprised to see so many people here during the World Cup,” Preckwinkle joked. “I’ll try to be as brief as possible so you can see the end of the game.”
