Lollapalooza just revealed its 2015 lineup, and this year Chicago’s top music festival will feature headlining performances from Paul McCartney, Metallica, and Florence + the Machine. Festival goers can also see sets from Sam Smith, Bassnectar, The Weeknd, Alt-J, Raury, Travis Scott, Young Thug, A$AP Rocky, Kid Cudi, Tyler the Creator and more! Although the lineup is low on top rap headliners, this year’s lineup certainly competes with 2014’s lineup, which included Outkast, Eminem, Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, Chance the Rapper and more.
This year Lollapalooza runs from July 31st to August 2nd, downtown at Grand Park. You definitely will not want to miss out on Lollapalooza this year and stay tuned for Lolla’s Aftershow schedule (which should release later this summer).
