Chainlinks Returns to Lollapalooza for its Third Year
CHICAGO, IL – Loyola Limited is pleased to announce a partnership between its bicycle shop, Chainlinks, and Lollapalooza.
For the third year in a row, Chainlinks will be returning to Lollapalooza as the festival’s only bicycle vendor. At Lollapalooza 2019, Chainlinks will operate a tent outside of the festival as a bicycle valet and minor repair station. Inside the festival, Chainlinks will operate a tent that promotes its mission of sustainability and bicycle safety to the 100,000 fans that attend the festival annually.
Since the founding of the festival in 1991, Lollapalooza has been more than a rock concert. It has become a place where music fans can learn from renowned nonprofits about how to effect positive change around the globe. This year, organizations attending the festival as Lolla Cares partners include Amnesty International, UNICEF, and the Obama Foundation.
“The opportunity to promote Chainlinks’ mission alongside nonprofit and activist groups that are renowned worldwide is extraordinary,” said Katherine Mediate, the President of Chainlinks and a rising junior at Loyola University Chicago’s College of Arts and Sciences.
More than ten undergraduate students at Loyola Limited will contribute to the planning and execution of Chainlinks’ partnership with Lolla Cares. Through the partnership, Chainlinks strives to encourage festival goers to go green by utilizing bicycle transportation.
