Chicago Weekend What's Up: August 3-5

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

It's a huge weekend for fun, festivals and music in Chicago.

Lollapalooza Music Festival starts Friday. The Office of Emergency Management and Communications say they expect about 100,000 people to attend the event each day. Headliners for Friday night's show include The Black Keys and Black Sabbath. The festival runs until Sunday night.

Friday morning, one of the DJ's from Lollapalooza will spin for us out on the plaza.

Plus, Hard Rock Hotel folks stop by to tell us how to party like a rock star.

Lollapalooza isn't the only thing going on Friday night.

Comcast Bears Family Fest is happening at Soldier Field. The event gives fans the opportunity to watch the Bears practice under the lights at their home field. It also includes live music, games and other kid friendly activities. Bears Family Fest costs $8 in advance and $12 at the door. Gates open at 5 p.m.

And that's not all that's going on this weekend.

Tonight Jennifer Lopez and Enrique Iglesias are performing Friday night at the United Center.

Meanwhile, the White Sox are hosting the Los Angeles Angels for three games at 'the Cell.'

Because of all the events, the city's Department of Transportation is warning people to be prepared for extra traffic. The CTA is expecting to provide additional service on some downtown train and bus routes.
