Chicago festival Lollapalooza is not going ahead as it usually would this year – obviously – but the festival has announced a huge virtual, live-streamed event to take place instead with an absolutely gargantuan lineup.
The event will air legendary sets from previous years from an array of headliners, including Outkast, Metallica, Paul McCartney, Lorde, LCD Soundsystem, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Arcade Fire – the latter of whom is celebrating the 10th anniversary of their seminal album The Suburbs.Download Our App
However, it’s not all archived content – a slew of huge acts from around the world will be performing live sets for the festival. These include H.E.R., Kali Uchis, Louis The Child, Pink Sweat$, Vic Mensa, YUNGBLUD and ZHU.
In addition, Australian acts like Alison Wonderland, Skegss and Wafia will also be taking part in Lollapalooza 2020.
On top of the absolute smorgasbord of performances, special guests like Michelle Obama, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, LL Cool J and Lars Ulrich will also be making appearances.
The event will broadcast for free on the festival’s YouTube channel from Thursday, 30th July – Sunday, 2nd August, with the full streaming schedule dropping Wednesday, 29th July.
