Is it festival time yet? No? Well, it sure feels like it, especially with the sun shinin’ and the announcement of Lollapalooza’s 2016 lineup. It’s just like all of the other lineups, but with a food section called Chow Town and an area where you can register for newsletter lists — in person! Also, because it’s the festival’s 25th anniversary, it’s the longest festival of the year! Four days long, to be exact. Sorry, Chicago’s Grant Park.
The fest will run from Thursday, July 28 thru Sunday, July 31. Thursday’s headliners include J. Cole, Lana Del Rey, and the 1975. Friday’s headliners include Radiohead, Future, Major Lazer, and M83. Saturday looks to be prime Hip Dad Day, as headliners include Red Hot Chili Peppers and Disclosure, as well as Jane’s Addiction. The festival finishes on strong dance notes, as Sunday will be headlined by LCD Soundsystem, Ellie Goulding, and Flume. Probably for the best, given how exhausted everyone will be from spending three days straight at a festival.
As one could guess, the lineup is much more extensive than just the headlining acts, and you can see them all in the poster below.
For a daily breakdown, look here. Get tickets here — they’re $120 per day, and the $335 four-day ticket is already sold out. Also, did you ever wonder what “lollapalooza” meant? According to Google, it’s “a person or thing that is particularly impressive or attractive.” Huh. We won’t be angry at you for using that fun fact to meet cute with a fellow Halsey head, don’t worry.
