This year marks the 25th anniversary of Chicago-based music festival Lollapalooza and the lineup, announced Wednesday, won’t disappoint.
From headliners like Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers and J. Cole to the smaller acts like Mothers and Potty Mouth, the festival is going big, featuring more than 170 performances. Organizers have added on a fourth day, honoring the years since Perry Farrell of Jane’s Addiction created Lolla in 1991.
Also on the lineup are a mixture of Texas-made artists and musicians who recently took to Austin stages during South By Southwest 2016. After an adrenaline-inducing performance at Brazos Hall, indie-rock band Bloc Party is sure to give Lolla headliners a run for their money. Joining the list of SXSW transfers are rap superstar Future, electronic duo Adventure Club and rapper Vince Staples, who took more than a couple of shots at streaming services while performing at his Spotify House set.
Austinites looking for some Texan solidarity at Lolla should look out for performances by soul singer and Fort Worth-native Leon Bridges and Austin’s very own inde-pop group Wild Child.
The festival runs from July 28 – 31 at Grant Park, Chicago. Along with the full lineup, Lolla also released the day-by-day schedule, so festival-goers should get to planning. Tickets for general admission went on sale Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. and sold out in less than three hours — people who still want in can get VIP tickets or get crafty.
