    The "Dancing with the Devil" singer posted a photo taken during the music festival, which had already been circulating on Twitter for days and showed an enormous, packed crowd of attendees standing shoulder-to-shoulder in Grant Park.

    It originally garnered attention online when social media users noticed that few of the concertgoers pictured appeared to be wearing face masks.

    This understandably raised concerns about furthering the spread of COVID-19, as cases rise again amid a Delta variant surge in Chicago and nationwide.

    "C'MON Y'ALL!!!" Demi captioned the massive crowd photo on their Instagram Story. "THERE IS STILL A PANDEMIC HAPPENING!!!"

    Lollapalooza's COVID-19 health policy stated that all festival attendees were required to provide proof of vaccinations or recent negative test results in order to gain entry.

    The policy also directed everyone to wear face masks in indoor spaces at Grant Park starting on Saturday, based on updated recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and, in turn, the Chicago Public Health Department. Any unvaccinated attendees were asked to wear masks at all times.
