The famed Chicago music festival has had an official lineup announced for a few weeks, but the list is so vast that new revelations of great artists seem to appear with every new look! Here are some of the highlights that might have escaped your first pass through the Lollapalooza lineup.
Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever
The premiere underrated guitar-based indie-pop/rock band, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, gives expertly composed pieces memorable hooks to both casually and intellectually draw in listeners.
This artist’s excellent fusion of hip-hop with pop, funk, and noise elements debuted with the dynamic album Smiling With No Teeth last year.
One of the rock additions to the festival channels Bruce Springsteen’s anthemic sound but hails from Great Britain while singing of the political and social woes of the time.
One of the prime TikTok artists out there, PinkPanteress’ music is simple yet remarkable modern pop music at its finest.
Celebrated art-pop singer/songwriter Caroline Polachek injured herself before finishing opening dates with Dua Lipa earlier this year, so hopefully, this incredible artist will be alright for the summer show.
Curry’s name is buried far more than it should be, especially considering he just released one of the best records of 2022 so far. The Florida rapper puts on one of the best performances of any in his genre, constituting a must-see from this list.
Fresh off a couple of Grammy wins from last month, underappreciated R&B artist Jazmine Sullivan highlights the top-tier artists of the lineup.
Among all these obvious choice names at the top of the list, like Dua Lipa and Doja Cat, the one that might jump out at you is Metallica. The classic thrash band is the Number One metal band in the world, but seeing their name first on such a popular list of artists still feels momentous.
