An unidentified festival attendee did tragically pass away on the final night of the festival. On Sunday, the Chicago Office of Emergency Management and Communications released a statement indicating that "an individual transported from the event in critical condition last night due to a medical emergency has since passed away at the hospital"

This morning, in a quote to the Chicago Tribune, a festival representative confirmed the death and sent sentiments to the family of the deceased. "We are saddened to learn of the death of an individual who attended Lollapalooza on Saturday," they said. "Our thoughts are with the individual’s family and loved ones at this time."

According to officials, there were 31 arrests and 116 emergency transports at this year's iteration of the long-running festival.
