Going to Lollapalooza this weekend? Feel free to keep moving; there's nothing for you here. For the rest of us -- read on.

Few things outside baseball and pizza get Chicagoans as riled up as the love it/hate it debate over Lollapalooza. So if you'll be steering clear of Grant Park this weekend, we've got plenty for you to do. Check out our roundup of other festivals around town below.

Ticketless but still a Lolla fan? We've got you covered, too: here's all the best side shows, after parties, and more so you can max out your weekend outside the fence. The festival will also be streaming, in real time, on YouTube throughout the weekend.

Did we miss something great going on this weekend? Tell us about it in the comments!
