Yesterday, we learned that Lollapalooza will return to Grant Park from July 29–August 1 at full capacity. Today, we have details about who exactly will be performing at the gigantic summer music festival, which typically draws 100,000 attendees daily.
As teased in yesterday's mayoral video, Foo Fighters will be headlining a night of the four-day fest, along with rapper Post Malone, hip-hop producer Tyler, the Creator and pop singer Miley Cyrus. There are plenty of other big names on the lineup, such as costumed EDM artist Marshmello, "Hot Girl Summer" creator Meghan Thee Stallion, karaoke bar mainstays Journey, prolific emcee Young Thug and... nu-metal act Limp Bizkit.
There aren't many surprises among the names on the lineup, many of whom are performing at the various other U.S. festivals that have announced rosters of confirmed artists over the past few weeks. Some notable inclusions are internet-famous musician Marc Ribellet (a.k.a. Loop Daddy), Chicago folk-rockers Whitney, masked country crooner Orville Peck, rapper/soup-thrower Princess Nokia and local throwback rockers Rookie.
Four-day passes to the festival go on sale via the Lollapalooza website today at noon, with general admission available for $350, GA+ available for $650, VIP for $1500 and the coveted Platinum pass going to $4200. Rumors have been flying that Lollapalooza will experiment with variable pricing this year, making tickets more expensive as they dwindle in supply. A warning on the festival's ticketing page seems to support this theory, noting that "Prices are subject to increase without notice."
A full COVID-19 vaccination or negative COVID-19 test results (obtained within 24 hours of attending the festival each day) will be required to enter Lollapalooza this year—something that could make the entry process even more of a hassle than it already is. Organizers are promising to share additional information about how the entry process will work in early July.
Take a peek at the complete lineup below and prepare yourself for another hot weekend in Grant Park surrounded by thousands of sweaty people.
