Lollapalooza 2022 is right around the corner, and it’s a special one for K-pop fans. The four-day festival — which is scheduled to take place in Chicago starting on Thursday (July 28) through Sunday (July 31) — will host some of the biggest talents the music industry has to offer, including a BTS member and one of K-pop’s most prominent boy groups.
On Sunday, BTS‘ J-Hope will make history as the first ever South Korean artist to headline a main stage at a major American music festival. The rapper replaced Doja Cat on the festival lineup following her cancellation due to her tonsil surgery, which also resulted in her stepping down from The Weeknd’s tour. The news of J-Hope’s Lollapalooza appearance came just before the release of his debut solo album, Jack in the Box.
“What’s up ARMY? I cannot wait to see you at Lollapalooza on July 31,” J-Hope said in a video posted to Weverse’s Twitter account. “It’s an honor to be the first South Korean artist to headline a major American music festival. I’m so excited to see the other artists like Dua Lipa, J. Cole, TOMORROX X TOGETHER, and so much more. I’m working hard to put on an incredible show for you all. See you in Chicago!”
TOMORROW X TOGETHER will take the stage at Lollapalooza on Saturday (July 30), meaning it will be an exciting time for BTS ARMY and TXT’s MOA. Here’s how fans can watch the experience unfold on streaming.
