When it comes to summertime festivals, few events are as iconic as Lollapalooza. The downtown Chicago festival just announced its 2023 lineup for another year at Grant Park, and it features some of their most impressive talent in recent years.
While headlining artists like Red Hot Chili Peppers, ODESZA, Lana Del Rey, Karol G, The 1975, and Tomorrow X Together are sure to draw fans from all over the world, the rest of the Lollapalooza 2023 lineup has plenty of DJs and artists that result in a can’t-miss festival.
Lollapalooza 2023 Set Times
Lollapalooza is a globally known festival on par with major events like Coachella and Bonnaroo.
Starting in the 1990s as an alternative rock concert, Lollapalooza has grown into a diverse festival that covers all genres. In 2022 [REVIEW], it was announced that the festival had renewed its lease for Grant Park for another 10 years. The downtown venue is complete with views of the Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan that make for one of the most scenic (and convenient) venues in the festival scene.
After the headliners, the Lollapalooza 2023 lineup includes both mainstream superstars and underrated up-and-comers.
The first name on the undercard is renowned house DJ/producer Fred Again.., who has blown up significantly in the last year and recently sold out Madison Square Garden with Skrillex and Four Tet. Diplo, Louis The Child, Subtronics, SVDDEN DEATH, Alan Walker, Afrojack, Gorgon City, Nora En Pure, Dom Dolla, Meduza, AC Slater, and Timmy Trumpet are some of the most prominent names in the EDM scene and will likely play at Perry’s, the EDM-dedicated stage at Lolla.
