Metra will offer an unlimited ride, 4-day train pass to this year’s Lollapalooza music festival (July 28-31). The $20 pass will be available for purchase July 6 at all ticket windows, including all downtown and outlying stations, and through the Ventra app.
And for those who are unable to get tickets to the sold-out event, Metra also announced a contest to win two 4-day tickets to Lollapalooza. To enter the drawing, potential festivalgoers are asked to 1) submit a photo on Instagram showing a trip they took on Metra or a destination that can be reached riding Metra by using the hashtag #Metrapalooza and 2) follow Metra on Instagram. The winner will be selected by Metra based on the quality of the photo.
Also, potential festivalgoers should keep an eye out for a new image on Metra’s Twitter feed and official Facebook page for a chance to enter to win a 1-day ticket to Lollapalooza for Saturday, July 30. To enter for the 1-day ticket drawing, Twitter users must retweet an image and follow @Metra. On Metra’s Facebook page, followers must like both Metra’s page and the image to be entered into a drawing. Metra will randomly select one winner from Twitter and one from Facebook. Each winner will receive a single ticket for Lollapalooza’s Saturday, July 30 performances.
