We’re coming up on the first weekend of August, which typically sees downtown Chicago awash in neon-garbed tourists making their way to Grant Park for the city’s annual Lollapalooza music fest. This year, of course, things are different—but today the festival has announced that the show will go on as planned, revealing an impressive lineup of artists who’ll stream performances from Lolla’s YouTube account over the weekend.
The event kicks off this Thursday, June 30, and will extend through Sunday, with new and old sets, conversations, and more available to all for free. Among the highlights listed on the announcement graphic are re-broadcast sets from Arcade Fire, OutKast, Alabama Shakes, Tyler, the Creator, Run the Jewels, A$AP Rocky, LCD Soundsystem, and Portugal. The Man, as well as new live performances from H.E.R., Kali Uchis, Vic Mensa, mxmtoon, Princess Nokia, and Pink Sweat$. The event will also feature appearances from fest founder Perry Farrell (who will also be reuniting his band Porno for Pyros) and Chicago personalities including Common, Michelle Obama, and the Bulls’ Zach LaVine.
