Summer’s nearly here, which means the countless music festivals held around the globe are slowly but surely unveiling their lineups. After announcements from Glastonbury, Coachella and Governor’s Ball (to name a few), Lollapalooza has followed suit.
Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, a reunited LCD Soundsystem and J. Cole are set to headline the 2016 Lollapalooza festival, which has expanded its typical three-day lineup to a full four days of music
Other artists billed for the festival include Lana Del Rey, Future, Ellie Goulding, Major Lazer, Disclosure, The 1975, HAIM, M83, Halsey, Martin Garrix, Years & Years, Alessia Cara, Kehlani, St. Lucia, Grimes, Bastille, Kiiara, Lapsley, Aurora, The Last Shadow Puppets, Wavves, Danny Brown, Modern Baseball, Foals, Classixx, Bloc Party, Die Antwoord, Jane’s Addiction and many more.
The festival was founded by Jane’s Addiction’s Perry Farrell, who released a statement saying (via Entertainment Weekly):
I’ve immersed myself in this experience for 25 years now, but it’s in a constant state of evolution, living and breathing. 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.
Lollapalooza will take place from July 28 to July 31 at Chicago’s Grant Park. Tickets are currently on sale over at the official website, but only General Admission for Sunday’s show are still available.
