Dozens of music fans who attempted to jump their way into Lollapalooza in Chicago’s Grant Park on Friday gained attention on social media, but likely won’t be so lucky when their day in court arrives in the near future.
According to a statement shared by the city of Chicago’s Office of Emergency Management & Communications on Saturday states that approximately 50 people attempted to hop one of the exterior perimeter fences surrounding the weekend music event at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Balbo Drive at around 2 p.m. on Friday. Unfortunately for the dozens of fans who were foolish enough to try and hop their way into the festival, security and event police were right there waiting for them. No one was able to gain entry to the festival.
The statement also revealed that security had lined multiple layers of fencing in hopes of preventing such shenanigans, which seemed to have worked flawlessly.
Watch the fan-shot video below to witness the moment of the attempted mass breach, where cops on the outside of the fence weren’t able to stop anyone except some guy with a prosthetic leg–as if that’s even fair.

To add insult to injury, several of the attempted gate crashers will be charged with criminal trespassing.
