Hometown hero Chance the Rapper joins Arcade Fire, Lorde, Muse and The Killers as one of the headliners of this summer’s Lollapalooza 2017 in Chicago. The festival returns to Grant Park from Aug. 3-6 with a typically stacked four-day lineup that will also feature The XX, Blink-182, DJ Snake, Justice, alt-J, Cage The Elephant, The Head and The Heart, Ryan Adams, Liam Gallagher, Phantogram and Spoon, as well as up-and-comers Rag’n’Bone Man, Maggie Mae, 6lack, Sampha and Jain.
It’s the third go-found for Arcade Fire, who first played in 2005, then again in 2010 and it marks their first announced headlining gig in the U.S. so far this year. It will also be the third headlining slot for UK rockers Muse, who previously played on the Chicago lakefront in 2007 and 2011 and lucky number three for Chance, who has played two smaller stages before. Lorde, whose second album, Melodrama, is due out on June 16, will be hitting the main stage for the second time.
Hip-hop in general will be represented in one of the strongest ways in the fest’s 13-year history in Chicago, with acts including: Wiz Khalifa, Run the Jewels, Big Sean, Rae Sremmurd, Migos, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty, 21 Savage, Joey Bada$$, Noname, Russ, Machine Gun Kelly and Amine, while the EDM vibe is, as usual, very strong thanks to Kaskade, Porter Robinson, Zeds Dead, Crystal Castles and a number of others.
Other acts on the list include: Hippo Campus, Foster the People, Tegan and Sara, Kaleo, Cloud Nothings, Glass Animals, Vance Joy, Mac DeMarco, Banks, Sylvan Esso, Royal Blood, Warpaint, The Shins, Tove Lo, Milky Chance, Grouplove, Charli XCX and London Grammar.
