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.

Passion Pit Heading Out on North American Tour


Passion Pit have announced that they will be heading out on a North American tour come this August. The band will be taking along the Joy Formidable for the entire tour, but also have Two Door Cinema Club and St. Lucia on selected dates.

Before beginning on their three-month trek around the United States and Canada, the band will begin with a couple of festival stops including Wisconsin’s Summer Set Music Festival, California’s First City Festival as well as a special, two-day stop in New York City at Pier 26.

For fans who purchased tickets to see them in February at Madison Square Garden, but could not attend due to a blizzard, Passion Pit will be offering  discounted tickets for Pier 26. The band have revealed that all tickets that are sold through the discounted price, will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

Passion Pit’s last album, Gossamer, was released in July 2012 through Columbia Records, but just last week they released a pretty cool remix of Portugal. The Man’s “Purple, Yellow, Red and Blue.” The full schedule for the tour can be seen below.
