Lollapalooza, one of American’s largest music festivals, has announced its return to Chicago this summer. Starting July 29th, the four-day event will feature over 165 bands across eight stages. Lollapalooza is notorious for having one of the most diverse lineups, and this year is no exception. Foo Fighters, Post Malone, Tyler, the Creator, and Miley Cyrus are all headlining. Although there’s only one rock headliner, the rest of the lineup features a handful of exciting rock bands. Some notable rock bands that are confirmed for this festival include Foo Fighters, Journey, Limp Bizkit, Modest Mouse, Brittany Howard, Band of Horses, Jimmy Eat World, Young the Giant, Angels & Airwaves, All Time Low, The Front Bottoms, Oliver Tree, and many more. Check out the full lineup below.
“Here in Chicago, the word ‘Lollapalooza’ has always been synonymous with summer, great music, and four days of unforgettable fun—which made last year’s decision to postpone it all the more difficult,” Chicago Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot said in press materials. “Now, less than a year later and armed with a vaccine that is safe, effective, and widely available, we are able to bring back one of our city’s most iconic summer music festivals. I want to thank the Lollapalooza team for working closely with the City to create a reopening strategy that prioritizes safety and can’t wait to see festivalgoers return to Grant Park this summer.”
