Festival season is upon us and the Lollapalooza is the latest line-up that’s been announced featuring Tame Impala, Janelle Monáe and Lil Wayne.
The Chicago festival will return to Grant Park this summer from 1-4 August with tickets on sale now. The partial line-up was unveiled today via a promotional video for PAWS Chicago animal shelter.
The video featured a number of dogs moving balls to reveal images of the festival’s performers as a narrator reads off clues as to which artists would be appearing. All of the pets in the video are up for adoption and as far as festival rollouts go, this one was especially endearing.
The organizers are also selling exclusive Lollapalooza and PAWS merch to help raise money for the animal rights and shelter organization.
Along with the aforementioned acts above, the festival also announced additional performers including Latin superstar J Balvin, Tenacious D, Slash of Guns N’ Roses, Gunna, Calpurnia, Lil Baby, Lil Skies, Madeon, South Korean electronic star Yaeji and Spanish singer-songwriter ROSALÍA.
Four-day tickets for the festival are on sale now, and over 170 artists will descend upon Grant Park.
Last year, festival organizers live-streamed all of the performances online, which included headlining acts Vampire Weekend, Arctic Monkeys, Jack White, the Weeknd, Bruno Mars, Travis Scott and more.
The full-line up will reportedly be announced in the near future. Meanwhile Tame Impala is gearing up to headline Coachella weekend, one of the biggest stages the Australian psych-rock band has ever played. They’ll be joined by Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino and Kacey Musgraves.
Over 400,000 attendees crowded into Grant Park last year, as the festival continues to diversify its line-up and attract fans of all genres.
