ChiIL Mama has been to all 3 days of EVERY year of Lollapalooza and Family Friendly Kidzapalooza, since it took up residency in Chicago. My kids have grown up covering this gargantuan music fest as well as Summer Camp Music Fest, Pitchfork, Riot Fest, North Coast Music Fest and more.
Sage and Dugan (ages 3 & 5) rock Kidzapalooza. Now that they're 11 & 13, they STILL love Lolla!!
It's more than possible to navigate music fests with your punk kin, rock tots, and banger babies.... it's AWESOME!!
Check back with ChiIL Mama like we vote in Chi, IL... early and often for our top tips on how to keep fests fun for all ages, live show footage, lineup announcements, and original content. We'll have loads of photo and video filled recaps from past fests and new features on this year's must see acts.
Growing Up Kidza: Here's Sagezilla and Du-Jay at Kidzapalooza 06 at the ripe old ages of 3 and 5, hearing Perry Farrell and Patti Smith live for the first time!
