From the Back Seat to the Front Row: Lollapalooza

Hey festival-goers! The chart-topping weekend you’ve been waiting for is finally here and we’re on hand to make your experience effortless – and exciting. We’ve partnered with Lollapalooza to provide safe and reliable rides throughout the weekend.

    • Uber’s designated Pickup/Dropoff Locations:
      • Madison St. & Clark St.
      • Jackson Blvd & Clark St.
      • Van Buren St. & Clark St.
      • Harrison St. & Clark St.
      • Polk St. & Clark St.
    • On your way to Lollapalooza, let your driver know which dropoff spot works best for you.
    • Get home seamlessly by heading to one of the five designated pickup spots to request a ride and meet your driver.
    • Having trouble requesting? From the festival grounds, walk west and try requesting again.



Shade, swag, and a PHHHOTO booth. Break away from the crowd and stop by our tent near the southwest corner of Buckingham Fountain to capture and share your Lollapalooza experience.




    • Run a Fare Estimate to quote the cost of your trip before you request – it’ll even account for surge pricing.
    • Split the Fare of your trip with friends for an even cheaper ride and everyone’s a winner!
    • Use the Share My ETA feature so your crew can track your route in real time and know your expected time of arrival.
    • With the solid lineup this year, demand will be high. Surge pricing allows us to remain reliable during peak demand. We’ll always notify you if surge pricing is in effect and ask you to manually type in the higher multiple before you can request a ride.
    • Tap the “Notify Me If Surge Ends” button and confirm push notifications to receive an alert when surge pricing at your location drops.
    • Be sure to hop in the Uber you requested. Check out the license plate info listed in your app to avoid taking someone else’s.



This weekend will be jam packed with must-see acts, but Thursday night just might steal the show. We’re hosting an exclusive Kygo concert, where he’ll debut his brand new single live.

Wanna go? All you have to do is tap your app.


Ride. Go. Kygo.

  • Thursday at 7:30pm, select the ‘KYGO’ option in your Uber app, and request a ride
  • If connected, you (and up to 3 guests) will get a complimentary ride to the secret venue
  • Upon entry, you’ll experience a free, private performance by Kygo*







Request early. Admission to the event is first come, first serve. Not able to make it? Don’t miss a beat. View the performance live by following @Uber on Periscope.
