Out of all the major festivals, Lollapalooza is the only one thus far that’s had the balls to put tickets on sale before its lineup announcement; yesterday, four-day GA passes sold out in typical lightning fashion. Fortunately, the Chicago behemoth has just announced revealed its day-by-day slate to accompany the sale of single-day tickets, which go live today at 10:00 a.m. Central.
This will be the first year of four-day Lollapalooza, and on Thursday, Jul. 28, the festival will kick off with headliners J. Cole and Lana Del Rey. Also near the top of the bill are The 1975, whose album I Like It When You Sleep… has been a massive success, and G-Eazy. Acts like The Arcs, Paste favorites Kurt Vile and the Violators, rising British singer Frances, critical darlings Pinegrove, and country young gun Firekid round out the first day of the festival.
Friday, Jul. 29 marks the much-anticipated Radiohead headlining slot. They’re joined at the top of the bill by Future, Major Lazer and M83. Other highlights of Friday’s lineup include Swedish synth-poppers Miike Snow, Frightened Rabbit, promising British rockers Wolf Alice, Saint Motel and Haelos, whose recent album we loved.
Saturday, Jul. 30 brings the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Disclosure to headline. The fairly deep lineup will also feature performances from Grimes, Chris Stapleton, soul master Leon Bridges, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, and BBC Sound of 2016 winner Jack Garratt.
Sunday, Jul. 31 rounds out Lollapalooza with LCD Soundsystem’s big reunion, accompanied at the top of the bill by Ellie Goulding and Flume. Earlier in the day, you’ll be able to find HAIM, Halsey, Local Natives, Vince Staples, Years & Years, Paste Best of What’s Next-featured Låpsley, and, if you’re feeling really nostalgic, Third Eye Blind.
Check out the full day-by-day lineup here. One-day tickets to Lollapalooza cost a cool $120 and can be purchased here from approximately 10:00-10:04 a.m. Central, if you can make it through the jammed server.
