Opening Act at Lollapalooza in Grant Park

Opening Act at Lollapalooza in Grant Park

Imperial Crane was hired to assemble multiple stages, one being the stage that will be used for headliner appearances, along with production lifts needed throughout Grant Park. Using a 150 ton crane, Imperial hoisted 8,100 lb. poles to hold roof structures in place for the lighting and visuals used during the event. Imperial also hoisted the Lollapalooza signs viewed throughout the park along with the delay towers. Imperial Crane is proud to take part in Chicago’s largest musical festival.

Preparation for live performances are nothing new for Imperial Crane as they have been a part of Perry’s World which has gotten bigger and bigger each year using two 40 or 60 ton cranes along with the Bud Light stage used for various acts.
