Lollapalooza adds BTS’s J-Hope as headliner

BTS’s J-Hope has been added as the headliner for this year’s Lollapalooza festival, which will take place at Chicago’s Grant Park from July 28-31. J-Hope will close the festival on Sunday, July 31, making history as the first South Korean artist to headline a major US music festival.

Lollapalooza also announced that K-pop group Tomorrow x Together have been added to the lineup on Saturday, July 30, marking their US festival debut.

“I am happy to welcome J-Hope and Tomorrow x Together to the Lollapalooza family,” Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell said in a statement. “These artists have received great gifts in communication. Their global audience speaks different languages ​​but has an intense passion for their music. Lolla is the place where all musical genres live in harmony. They’re the superstars of the global K-Pop phenomenon, and we’re thrilled to have them at this year’s festival. »

J-Hope joins a stacked roster alongside co-headliners Metallica, Dua Lipa, J. Cole and Green Day among many others, plus sets from Kygo, Big Sean, Jazmine Sullivan, Don Toliver, Charli XCX, Idles, Turnstile and more. The festival also recently posted a full list of festival times on its Twitter page.

The additions of J-Hope and Tomorrow x Together come as Doja Cat has canceled several of her summer festival performances, including Lollapalooza and her run with Weeknd’s tour, due to throat health issues. The singer posted a note on Twitter on May 20 explaining her absence and confirming that she will be undergoing tonsil surgery and will need time to recover.

Last year Lollapalooza also took place in Grant Park and established itself as one of the first major festivals to return after the pandemic shutdowns.
