Kendrick Lamar, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Karol G, the 1975, Tomorrow X Togethers will headline the 2023 Lollapalooza Music festival which is set to take place at Chicago’s Grant Park from August 3rd to the 6th.
The line-up for this year’s festival, which was announced on Tuesday, is jampacked with stars with a stellar list of 170 artists. Tomorrow x Together (TXT) will also become the first Korean-Pop band to headline the event, whereas Karol G will make history to become the first female Latin artist to headline Lollapalooza.
The 170 artists will perform on nine different stages over four days at the venue during the festival. Other artists slated to perform are Maggie Rogers, Carly Rae Jepsen, Diplo, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Rina Sawayama, Lil Yachty, Sabrina Carpenter, Suki Waterhouse, Louis the Child, Noah Kahan, and A Boogie Wit da Hoodie.
Founded in 1991 by Jane’s Addiction and frontman for Porno for Pyros, Perry Farrell as a touring festival, the event has since grown massively in popularity and gone on to become one of the biggest events in the music calendar—now with a permanent venue in Grant Park, Chicago. Genres performed at the event, but not limited to, are punk rock, hip hop, punk rock, heavy metal, and electronic dance music.
Presale for the event begins on March 23rd (10 am CT). You can get a 4-day general admission ticket for $365 or a single admission ticket for a day, which will be announced later. The event which sells out every year gets an estimated 400,000 visitors.
The word “Lollapalooza” derives from 19th century American idiomatic phrase meaning “an extraordinary or unusual thing, person or event.”
