As a newly added artist to Lollapalooza’s lineup, Korean rapper Jung Ho-seok, otherwise known as j-hope, of boy band BTS will make history in Chicago in July.

According to Lollapalooza organizers, j-hope will be the first South Korean artist to headline a “major American music festival”.

The rapper will take the stage on Sunday at the 4-day festival.

Dua Lipa, J. Cole and Green Day are also set to headline the July 28-31 festival, along with other artists like Lil Baby, Machine Gun Kelly, Kygo and Doja Cat.

Organizers noted that health and safety policies — such as negative tests, masks and proof of vaccination — may be required for the event, like last year. Details of all COVID measures will be announced before the festival.

Illinois and Chicago eased their COVID restrictions, lifting their indoor mask and proof of vaccination requirements on February 28. Lollapalooza is billed, among many other summer festivals, to return to its pre-pandemic size and scope.
