Lollapalooza is an annual music festival that brings hundreds of thousands of concert-goers to Chicago, many of whom are adolescents. Emergency departments (EDs) see a surge of adolescent patients during seasonal events such as this, which places a strain on resources and provides unique challenges. The variation in care that Lollapalooza patients receive has served as a source of data for quality improvement initiatives within our ED.
