For three years, Chicago’s Grant Park has been the exclusive home of the annual music phenomenon, Lollapalooza. For those same three years, Anheuser-Busch has been the festival’s exclusive beer vendor. The three-day event, held in August, welcomed 150,000 music fans in Summer 2007 who enjoyed 130 bands on eight different stages, including Iggy Pop & The Stooges, Pearl Jam, Patti Smith, Amy Winehouse, and Modest Mouse.
Lollapalooza was organized by Jane’s Addiction singer Perry Farrell and is a music-lover’s bonanza that touches on a remarkable range of musical styles. The diverse lineup has included Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, The Smashing Pumpkins, The Ramones, Waylon Jennings, Kanye West, and Billy Idol, to name a few. The event occurred annually from 1991 to 1997. It was revived in 2003 and cancelled in 2004. A touring Lollapalooza festival was planned that year but cancelled due to low ticket sales.
In 2005, the event found a permanent home at Grant Park in Chicago. Lollapalooza is more than just a concert. It is a musical, cultural and community experience that melds well with its location — a jewel that the citizens of Chicago hold dear. The event seems to have settled comfortably into its new home. “Grant Park is truly one of the signature parks in America,” said event producer Charles Attal. “I think people will be amazed when they see how we transform it into a musical playground.” The Parkways Foundation and the City of Chicago have provided the use of the entire park for the event, which stretches from Lower Hutchinson north to Monroe Drive. The spacious park provides the festival with room to expand to numerous stages without anticipating noise bleed issues.
To accommodate the oversized urban venue, CITY Beverage-Chicago (CBC), Anheuser-Busch’s distributor for the region, supplied a 90-person team to man multiple beer stations. “The significant advance preparation by the Sales and Operations Departments was evident throughout the smooth execution of this event,” noted CBC General Manager Mike Flynn. “We applaud all the members of our team, as well as the support from Anheuser-Busch, for their dedication and constant on-site coordination. Their work added to the festival’s enjoyment for everyone attending. It was truly a team effort that resulted in record beer sales.”
Over the course of the weekend-long event, CBC sold over 580,000 ice cold servings of Budweiser, Bud Light and the lighter-tasting, lower calorie Bud Select. To accomplish this feat, the team utilized nine refrigerated trailers, six “way-matics” or mobile draft distribution centers, and 150 cold plates. “Having the correct resources can make all the difference in the success of an event, particularly an event the size of Lollapalooza,” explained Flynn.
In addition to the adult-size fun on eight stages, Lollapalooza also features the KIDZ Stage, where the young and young-at-heart rocked out to acts such as Rock for Kids Youth Jam Band, The Sippy Cups, Paul Green’s School of Rock Allstars, and Patti Smith in 2007. Kids also participate in music and dance workshops, body painting, and a mobile recording studio where they can record their own song on CD. Children aged 10 and under are admitted free if accompanied by a ticket-holding adult.
Beneficiary of Lollapalooza, the Parkways Foundation is a non-profit dedicated to enhancing Chicago’s public spaces. The Chicago parks system is the most extensive in the country, comprising a collection of more than 550 parks, 250 field houses, golf courses, museums, and miles of shoreline. Proceeds from Lollapalooza benefit the Parkways Foundation.

Tips To Ensure Your Big Day Is Perfect
You are planning your big day. Tons of time and effort goes into this process and the end result had better be good. So how do you make that happen and still keep your sanity along the way? The answer is quite easy and that is to read along and we will provide some wedding planning tips that can really help anyone to make it to the big day.
Do not forget to learn about how you will handle tax reporting for your business. Reporting taxes for a business is much more complicated than filing taxes for yourself. You might need to hire a tax accountant to sort out what you have to do in the first year that you are filing as a business, just to make sure that it is done correctly.
If you are planning an outdoor wedding you will need to consider the possibility of bad weather. If you do not have a backup plan, this could ruin your wedding and inconvenience all of your guests who are attending. Always prepare for the worst on important occasions.
When the wedding has ended, you will most likely receive gifts from the people who have attended. Make sure that during this time, you and your spouse are together so that you can both show the appreciation that is deserved. Thank everyone regardless of what type of present they give you.
You should try to create a wedding that is extremely personal by having elements which encompass you, your fiance, and the relationship between you two. Think about your time together and find a theme which matches it.
An outdoor wedding has its own natural beauty but you should still check on the place where your wedding will be held right before your wedding. Check to make sure that the grass has been mowed, leaves have been raked, and it is clear of debris. If you notice something that you do not like, make sure it is taken care of before your wedding day.
For the woman who is about to get married, don't skimp on the dress. This is your day to shine, to look the most beautiful you have ever looked before, and to be decorated with unending compliments. So go buy that expensive dress you have always dreamed of wearing on your wedding day.
Skip having guests throw confetti at your wedding as it makes a mess and isn't good for the environment, nor will you like picking it out of your hair. Instead, give your guests a noisemaker with the date of your wedding and your names on it to take home as an inexpensive keepsake.
Make sure that you never plan your bachelor or bachelorette parties the day before the wedding. There may be a lot of drinking at these parties, and the last thing that you will want to do is ruin the day of your wedding because you are not fully functional. Have a calm day right before your wedding.
It is okay to let loose at your wedding reception. Many people take their wedding day too serious and do not remember it is supposed to be a joyous occasion. When this happens, they look back at their special day with unpleasant memories. Laugh with your guests, and dance to upbeat music.
Share your discounts on airline tickets with family and friends who will be attending your destination wedding. If you have Airmiles, see if you can help by purchasing tickets for your family with the reduction in cost thanks to those miles. Ask around with all attendees to see if they can pool their resources and get more discounts!
When picking out your wedding ring, make sure to get one you know you are going to like years down the line. Many people pick a random ring, and later decide that they do not like it. Also, if you are going to get matching bands, make sure both of you like them.
The time has come to plan your wedding. It is the biggest day of your life, and you're putting every drop of energy into the process. You just might lose your sanity along the way, right? Wrong! If you follow the tips we have provided, you can make it to your big day and keep your sanity intact. Take a deep breath and enjoy the ride!
