Lollapalooza 2017 Lineup Features Chance The Rapper, Arcade Fire, Blink-182, Big Sean & more

posted by Oscar March 22, 2017

It’s heeeeeere!! The Lollapalooza lineup has arrived in the early, early hours of the morning (6am tho?!) and less than one day after 4-day passes sold out, we find out who’s playing Grant Park between August 3-6.

Chance all but confirmed his inclusion yesterday, but now we come to learn that young Chance The Rapper is actually the first name on this year’s lineup! Joining him to headline the storied festival are Arcade Fire, Muse, Blink-182, Cage The Elephant, Lorde, Run The Jewels, Alt-J, Big Sean, and The Shins.

But as with every year, it’s not just about the headliners!! Some of the other dope names that this year’s roster has to offer are other POD favorites like Migos, Spoon, Kaytranada, Ryan Adams, Phantogram, Mac DeMarco, Royal Blood, Highly Suspect, Aminé, Joey Bada$$, Charli XCX, Sampha, and Maggie Rogers.

Along with Chano, the Chicago presence on this lineup is also quite dope. This year we can catch acts that we fully endorse like Whitney, Noname, The O’My’s, Kweku Collins, and The Walters as the hometown highlights.

At the time of publication, you can still purchase single-day tickets on the Lollapalooza website.

Eminem, Arctic Monkeys, Skrillex Among Lollapalooza 2014 Headliners

Lollapalooza Day 2 review

Today the Chicago Tribune‘s Greg Kot has leaked that this year’s headliners at Lollapalooza include Eminem, Arctic Monkeys, Skrillex and King of Leon. Revealed today, Kot cites that sources have confirmed with him that these are the names of the acts coming to Chicago’s Grant Park for the festival taking place August 1-3 and he gives a good summary of these artists’ history and what helped lead to their inclusion.

The headliners are pretty great overall, but not overly impressive; many of us expected names like OutKast, Kanye West and Daft Punk. Eminem is one of the most important artists in music today and of the few true icons making new, relevant music these days, but he was just at Lolla in 2011. Kings of Leon were awesome until about 2008 when Only By The Night came out. Arctic Monkeys and Skrllex on the other hand are making important strides in their own respective genres today and very well deserve headlining spots this year.

Tickets are scheduled to go on sale next Tuesday, March 25.
