2015 Green Street Art Market Application
Deadline to Apply:  April 24, 2015


This is your chance to put your products in front of over 295,000 enthusiastic fans at the twenty-fourth year of Lollapalooza, America's premier rock festival. 2015 marks the eleventh year of Chicago being Lollapalooza's home! For three days, Chicago’s Grant Park is transformed into a tour de force of music, art, fun stuff for kids, food, interactivity and community. With more than 130 bands and performers on eight stages, Lollapalooza is one of the mightiest entertainment collectives anywhere.


Green Street is the public face of Lollapalooza's green mission. This is our forum for showing the fans simple yet effective ways to live a life more green and it will include art market vendors, a Rock & Recycle Center (which rewards fans for recycling), a fan tag kiosk (which sells carbon offset tags so patrons can offset their travel to the festival), and other exhibits and nonprofits specializing in the environment. Green Street debuted in 2007 and proved to be an extremely popular and well-attended feature. The area is a specially designed destination with fun, interactive booths and exhibits.  This is the only craft vending area on the grounds and there will be a limited number of about twenty select vendors who specialize in eco-products.

Please note that previous vendors are not guaranteed a spot in 2015.  The exact location of Green Street within the festival grounds is TBD and booth location within the area is solely determined by the festival producers.  

Note:  We strongly prefer to choose vendors who are located in Chicago or the surrounding community. 


Green Street only accepts art market vendors selling eco-friendly, sustainable and/or fair trade products.
