What towns have been most excited about Lollapalooza over the past ten years?

Lollapalooza has been a staple of Chicago’s summer and a beacon for music lovers across Illinois and America. This festival, renowned for its eclectic mix of acts, draws crowds from near and far.

Lollapalooza just announced their 2024 lineup. What towns searched for Lollapalooza the most?

To uncover the most enthusiastic cities, we turn to Google Trends. This tool provides insight into which towns made the most Google searches for Lollapalooza. It’s easy enough to pull up this year’s searches. But I wanted to go deeper to get a better dataset. I looked up the past ten years.

For every year, I looked up the exact date when Lollapalooza announced their lineup. To get a little bit larger data set, I also included the following two days after the announcement.

Western Springs is the top Lollapalooza town

Western Springs leads the pack with an unmatched cumulative interest score of 338 over the past decade. In 2022 and 2017, Western Springs was #1 town.

River Forest is the second most interested town in Lollapalooza

Hot on its heels is River Forest, with a score of 334. Even though River Forest never appeared as the #1 town in any of the past ten years, they do demonstrate a strong, consistent engagement with the festival, appearing in the top 10 four times. And appearing in the top 50 eight times.

Here’s a bar chart of the top ten towns over the past ten years

You’ll notice that some years, towns don’t have a score at all. I’m guessing that Google Trends’ city data can be pretty sparse (hence why I included the two days after the announcement, not just day of).

Oak Park and Naperville

The only towns that have a score for all 10 years are Oak Park and Naperville. But both towns never had a peak year to push them up into the top spot. You’ll see that Oak Park comes in at #6, but Naperville doesn’t appear in the top ten at all, they are at #25.
