    It may be a known bug: when you connect to a certain wifi, the phone is assigned an IP. Then the other times you try to connect to that same wifi the phone tries to get the same IP it had the first time and, if it doesn't succeed, it gets stuck at 'Obtaining IP address'.

    If it's a home/personal wifi, try to disconnect all other devices, reset the router then connect the phone.

    Its an public wifi so theres not much i can do, my friend is able to connect to the same wifi, so Im guessing it can be an issue with the wifi version or something like that, Im able to connect to other wifi's without any errors or delays
