Watch a Swarm of Fans Break into Lollapalooza by Jumping Fence
A video shows dozens of people crashing the festival, with only one person appearing to have been caught
Published Aug 02, 2019Lollapalooza is this weekend in Chicago, and evidently a lot of fans are enjoying the festival for free. Video footage has emerged showing dozens of fans storming the barricade and leaping over the fence
The massive volume of fence-hoppers easily overwhelms the guards. Judging by the video, security only managed to apprehend a single fan, who approached the fence on a prosthetic leg. Some commenters online have suggested the swarm was a coordinated effort, since the whole thing takes place in only seconds.
The video was uploaded by photographer Jeremy Cohen, although he later deleted it. The video has since circulated and been re-uploaded numerous times.
Lollapalooza runs August 1 to 4 at Chicago's Grant Park. The fence-crashers will be able to enjoy today's performances from Childish Gambino, Tame Impala, Janelle Monáe, Death Cab for Cutie and more.
