      Leor Galil Chicago Reader How does the epitome of subcultural cool evolve into a four-day, money-printing monolith whose loudest champions are Chicago mayors? Lolla doesn't answer that question. Jun 4, 2024 Full Review Craig Mathieson The Age (Australia) As a cultural event, the series is full of praise for the tour’s impact, although there’s a lack of nuance in capturing how corporate concerns took over. Us versus them is a simplistic framing. May 24, 2024 Full Review Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times The docuseries sometimes comes across as an extended infomercial for Lolla. Still, it doesn’t shy away from chronicling the ups and downs of the festival, from its early days as an anti-establishment, activist, alt-rock tour... Rated: 3/4 May 24, 2024 Full Review Rodrigo Perez The Playlist “Lolla: The Story Of Lollapalooza” is a terrifically watchable snapshot of an unpredictable, combustible, vibrant, and once-in-a-lifetime period in music culture we may never see repeated again. Rated: B+ May 31, 2024 Full Review Johnny Loftus Decider ... Includes some cool live footage and lots of time capsule MTV stuff. And sure, Lolla: The Story of Lollapalooza explores the nuts and bolts of the festival’s thirty-year history, too, if that’s something you’re interested in. May 23, 2024 Full Review Alan French Sunshine State Cineplex It’s an excellent history of an era in music that became wildly influential. At the same time, Warren keeps us endlessly entertained with insane tour footage and funny commentary. Rated: 7/10 May 23, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews

      Balloon C I felt like I was there! My favorite thing I've seen all year Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/20/24 Full Review Bradley M Critics are unnecessarily hard on this doc. Entertaining and super nostalgic for those of us old enough to remember the early 90s. If you're interested in this doc, you will enjoy it.
