J. Cole, Future, Vince Staples and More to Headline Lollapalooza 2016
Last week, J. Cole was announced as one of the headliners for the 25th anniversary of Chicago's Lollapalooza festival and today, the rest of the stacked lineup was announced. The four-day festival, which runs from July 28-31, features a number of hip-hop acts that range from rising underground artists to superstars.
Among the scheduled performers are J. Cole, Future, G-Eazy, Bryson Tiller, Vic Mensa, Mac Miller, Vince Staples, A$AP Ferg, Danny Brown, Alessia Cara, Tory Lanez, Kehlani, Towkio, Skepta, Flatbush Zombies, Jazz Cartier, D.R.A.M., Saba and the Dreamville triumvirate of Bas, Cozz and Omen.
"I've immersed myself in this experience for 25 years now, but it's in a constant state of evolution, living and breathing," wrote Jane's Addiction's Perry Farrell, the festival's creator and founder in a press release. "As long as we always try to find the eye of the hurricane, the epicenter of the music that is truly connecting right now, I think we can go for another 25 years! And we'll do it by always making sure to keep it fresh. Four days this year, over 170 of the best bands, including acts from all over the world as the music community connects globally more than ever; the best sound, staging and lights. We promise the festival will always strive to be the 'lifeblood' of the music scene."
Four-day general admission tickets are sold out, but single-day tickets are available via Lollapalooza's website.
Cole will also be headlining the 2016 Bonnaroo Festival in June.
