Over the past couple of weeks, speculations over who would be headlining this year's Lollapalooza have been at an all-time high. Last week, sources revealed that Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the newly reunited LCD Soundsystem would be the headlining acts for the annual summer festival. On Wednesday (March 23), festival organizers unveiled the complete lineup for the 2016 incarnation of the music festival.
As those unknown sources had previously uncovered, Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and LCD Soundsystem will in fact headline the festival's 25th anniversary show. Other acts that will be hitting the stage alongside the headliners will be J. Cole, Lana Del Rey, Ellie Goulding, Disclosure, Major Lazer, Jane’s Addiction, Haim, The 1975, City and Colour, M83, Halsey, Bloc Party, Saint Motel, Melanie Martinez, The Joy Formidable,The Front Bottoms,Grimes, Hardwell, Martin Garrix, Silversun Pickups, MuteMath, Two Door Cinema Club, Big Gram, Foals, Bastille, Miike Snow and many more.
In addition to the massive lineup, organizers also confirmed that 2016 will mark the first year that the festival goes from three days to four. Last year, organizers announced that they were planning on extending the days of the festival in honor of its quarter-of-a-century anniversary. At the time of the announcement, the festival hadn't obtained the seal of approval from the city of Chicago, but they were already selling four-day, early bird passes. But even that wasn't enough news for the Illinois-based music festival. In addition to the complete musician lineup and extension of days, the daily lineup is now available on their website.
Lollapalooza will return to its home at Grant Park in Chicago during the weekend of July 28-31. General admission tickets will go on sale beginning today at 11 a.m. EST on the festival's website.
