Lollapalooza organizers (which, by most accounts, still include Perry Farrell) have given up on the notion of a traveling festival after 2004's meltdown, causing the cancellation of the tour. It seems that the cost of the festival in past years had grown so large, that there wasn't enough money left over after the bills were paid to satisfy Lollapalooza investors.
Then Lollapalooza moved to multi-day concert in Chicago's Grant Park, which is inside the downtown area of the city. Festival organizers promised the city skyline of the city as a backdrop for the show, so it's about as downtown as downtown can get.
