Lollapalooza confirm 2016 lineup, unveil daily lineup

Over the past few weeks, it seemed that everyone was trying to figure out who will be headlining 2016’s Lollapalooza. Since the speculations began, “sources” had confirmed that giants like Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers and the newly reunited LCD Soundsystem would headline the three-day music festival. On Wednesday (March 23), festival organizers unveiled the complete list for the upcoming summer gig.

As the “sources” leaked, Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and LCD Soundsystem will in fact headline the festival’s 25th incarnation, but they will be joined by a slew of other great musicians. Other performers will include J. Cole, Lana Del Rey, Ellie Goulding, Disclosure, Major Lazer, Jane’s Addiction, Haim, The 1975, City and Colour, M83, Halsey, Bloc Party, Saint Motel, Melanie Martinez, The Joy Formidable,The Front Bottoms,Grimes, Hardwell, Martin Garrix, Silversun Pickups, MuteMath, Two Door Cinema Club, Big Gram, Foals, Bastille, Miike Snow, and many more

The lineup for the 2016 edition of the festival is so massive, that it looks like after teasing last year, the festival will officially become a four-day event. Instead of beginning on Friday, like it has in the past, the show will now kick-off on Thursday. The four-day festival is set to take place during the weekend of July 28-31 at Chicago’s Grant Park. Tickets for the summer festival will go on sale beginning today at 11 am EST on the festival’s website.

For now, the complete list of acts, as well as the daily lineups, can be seen below.





Cage the Elephant Announce New Tour


Cage the Elephant have announced that they will be heading out on a North American tour, but they won’t be alone; Foals will be co-headlining the complete tour.

The two-week trek is slated to begin on May 5th in Raleigh, NC at the Red Hat Amphitheater and end on May 20th in Oakland, CA at the Fox Theatre. Tickets for fans wanting to attend the show will be available starting January 24.

Cage the Elephant released their third studio album, Melophobia last October and embarked on a tour, opening up for Muse’s fall tour. As for Foals, the Oxford band have become quite the festival darlings performing at such festivals as Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Outside Lands since the release of their third album Holy Fire.

In October, Foals released their first-ever DVD, entitled Live at the Royal Albert Hall which chronicles their sold-out show at the famous London venue. Show’s just how much of an impact the band have in their home country.
