Radiohead Tops Lollapalooza Lineup
July 28-31 is the weekend when Lollapalooza sets up shop at Chicago’s Grant Park. Organizers had more names to trumpet today, including G-Easy, Chris Stapleton, Leon Bridges, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Miike Snow, and Kurt Vile & The Violators.
There will be plenty of beats for dancers at Lollapalooza, courtesy of folks like Flosstradamus, Hardwell, Martin Garrix, Duke Dumont, GRiZ, Big Gigantic, Marshmello and others.
Lolla will also field many up-and-coming acts, including ZHU, Aurora, Bryson Tiller, Oh Wonder and Låpsley, along with female artists such as HAIM, Grimes, Alessia Cara, Lindsey Stirling, Kehlani and Melanie Martinez. Halsey, who appeared at 2015’s Lollapalooza, returns this year.
Jane’s Addiction is also on the lineup. Of course, Lollapalooza founder / Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell had something to say about the festival’s quarter century b-day party.
“I’ve immersed myself in this experience for 25 years now, but it’s in a constant state of evolution, living and breathing,” Farrell said. “As long as we always try to find the eye of the hurricane, the epicenter of the music that is truly connecting right now, I think we can go for another 25 years! And we’ll do it by always making sure to keep it fresh. Four days this year, over 170 of the best bands, including acts from all over the world as the music community connects globally more than ever; the best sound, staging and lights. We promise the festival will always strive to be the ‘lifeblood’ of the music scene.”
Although four-day general admission tickets sold out March 22, Lollapalooza has a limited number of one-day general admission and one-day VIP passes on sale now. Four-day platinum tickets and official hotel packages are still available.
