Tomorrow X Together Is The First K-Pop Group To Headline Lollapalooza
They’re joined by Kendrick Lamar, Billie Eilish, Lana Del Rey, Karol G, The 1975, and more as headliners.
Stateside music festivals are finally catching up to the K-pop boom. As Blackpink makes history at Coachella this year as the first K-pop group to headline the massive California festival, another K-pop group will be taking that same honor at Lollapalooza in August.
Tomorrow x Together, the massive five-member group also signed to BTS’ label, BigHit Entertainment, has been announced as the first K-pop group to headline of the Chicago festival’s latest iteration, organizers announced on Tuesday. (BTS’ J-Hope became the first K-pop act to headline the festival last year.) Joining them as headliners is the usual slate of superstar names: Kendrick Lamar, Billie Eilish, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Odesza, Lana Del Rey, Karol G, and The 1975.
Tomorrow X Together, or TXT, made its first official U.S. festival appearance last year, at Lolla’s 2022 event. It seems the crowd was massive enough to convince organizers to bump them up to headliner status this year — as well as bring another promising K-pop group into the fold: NewJeans. The rookie group, who’s reached surprising heights on the Billboard charts, will perform for the first time in the U.S. at Lolla 2023.
K-pop aside, there’s plenty to get excited about on the festival’s genre-spanning roster of acts scheduled to play the four-day event including: Fred again.., Maggie Rogers, Diplo, Rina Sawayama, Sabrina Carpenter, Lil Yachty, and many more (approximately 170 more).
It’s sure to be an event for the ages — so read on to learn everything you need to know about Lollapalooza 2023, including how to buy tickets, the full lineup, and how to stream the festival online.
