“As a part of the Chicago community, we felt it was important to elevate the presence of Chicago 2016 at Lollapalooza, and there is no better way to show our support than naming rights to one of our premier stages,” Charlie Jones, executive producer of C3 Presents, which is producing the Lollapalooza tour along with Farrell, said in a statement. “Lollapalooza and C3 Presents want to help keep the bid front and center, and do our part to help bring the 2016 Games to Chicago.”
