“(I didn’t like) getting squished by the people, and I did not like the mosh pits. The one thing I did like was the food,” Juliana Ortiz, a Sophomore, said.

Mostly some younger students don’t like getting into mosh pits because of the lack of air you can get because of the dirt on the floor.

“Staff at Lolla asked people to pick up trash after the festival was over with. I would go again if there were more bands and artists that I listened to,” Morton East Staff, Ms. Berezniak, said.

The staff doesn’t like Lollapalooza anymore because of the younger people going there and also was fascinated by the amount of help the young people were helping picking up trash.

“It was too packed, and people were sweating too much,” Adriana Ruiz, a Junior, said.

“I went to Lolla with my girlfriend and everyone was doing a lot of drugs in front of us,” Alexis Vasquez, a senior, said.

Some students also said that there were drugs and people doing them… It’s such a modern experience and a lot of millennial’s go

“I liked Ariana Grande’s set, she sang so good in person,” Emily Rios, a Senior, said.
