The annual Lollapalooza Festival was supposed to be kicking off this weekend, but like all other big concerts it was canceled due to the coronavirus. But fans who would be heading to Chicago to hear a weekend of great music can now do so in the comfort of their own home.
Lolla2020 will be a four-night virtual broadcast on the festival’s website and YouTube account, running from July 30th through August 2nd and starting at 6 pm ET each night. It will feature archival footage of headlining sets from artists like Paul McCartney, Outkast, Chance The Rapper, Aarcade Fire, Metallica, Lorde, Imagine Dragons, Jane’s Addiction, Ellie Goulding, Alabama Shakes and more.
There will also be original performances from H.E.R., Yungblud, Kaskade and others, plus Lolla founder Perry Farrell will sit down for conversations with Lars Ulrich, Chuck D and others. Farrell will also lead a David Bowie tribute and perform with Kind Heaven Orchestra, featuring Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins. Check out the official lineup below.
