The full 2019 Lollapalooza lineup has arrived, and a few of our artist predictions turned out to be correct. When the gigantic summer music festival returns to Grant Park from August 1 to 4, it will feature headlining sets from pop princess Ariana Grande, Donald Glover's hip-hop alter-ego Childish Gambino, alt-rock duo Twenty One Pilots, New York rockers the Strokes, psychedelic outfit Tame Impala and EDM hit-makers the Chainsmokers.

This year's Lolla undercard is also full of pleasant surprises, including Grammy-winning country artist Kacey Musgraves, hip-hop icon Lil Wayne (we're guessing that Chance the Rapper will show up for this set), R&B explorer Janelle Monáe, "Take Me To Church" singer Hozier, Jack Black's band Tenacious D and indie rock stalwarts Death Cab For Cutie. There are even a few artists that we'd usually expect to see on the Pitchfork Music Festival lineup making the move to the bigger stages of Grant Park, such as Mitski, Sharon Van Etten, (Sandy) Alex G and Tierra Whack.

Tickets for Lollapalooza 2019 went on sale yesterday, and sales are likely to pick up now that the lineup is out in the wild. This year, you'll pay $340 for a general admission four-day pass, or $135 for a single-day ticket (you'll be able to sang these when single-day lineups are released in the coming weeks). As usual, Lolla is offering a full slate of upgraded and VIP ticket options, with perks like access to private lounges, shuttle transportation across the park and onstage viewing of the show, though you'll pay dearly for the increased access—prices range from $650 to $4,400 for four-day VIP passes (and one optionthe Lolla Insider ticket—doesn't even list a price, which means that it's probably very expensive).

Take a look at the complete 2019 Lollapalooza lineup below and start making your list of must-see acts at this year's fest.
