Macklemore performed at the Rock 'n' Roll 1/2  of the 1/2 in Las Vegas on Sunday, November 16th benefitting the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, The Libertines, Sam Smith, Belle & Sebastian, Fatboy Slim, My Morning Jacket, Run the Jewels and Bastille are among the acts to play at the first Lollapalooza Berlin, set for Tempelhof Airport Sept. 12-13.

C3 Presents, now part of the Live Nation portfolio, will produce Lollapalooza Berlin, along with long time Lolla partners Perry Farrell and William Morris Endeavor Entertainment. Lollapalooza Berlin is positioned to become a European stronghold for the hugely successful international festival brand, joining Brazil, Argentina, Chile, and Chicago which grossed a combined $66 million (U.S.) in 2014, according to Billboard Boxscore.

Acts will perform on four stages, with the fest including the popular Kidzapalooza component, along with "glittering highlights from the worlds of fashion and art, as well as the hustle and bustle of Berlin's urban charm," according to a release announcing the lineup.

Clean Bandit, Martin Garrix, and Robin Schulz will perform on Perry's Stage, and Tame Impala, Run The Jewels, Little Dragon, and Hot Chip will take on Lollapalloza Berlin's alternative stage.

Main stage performers Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, The Libertines, Sam Smith, Seeed, Belle & Sebastian, Fatboy Slim, MMJ, and Bastille will be joined by a "remaining act, [which] might have been the first one to be booked, yet…will be the last one to be revealed during a grand event," according to a statement released announcing the lineup. Additional acts, as well as program details, will be announced over the coming weeks.
