K-pop is taking the American music festival scene by storm as more and more K-pop groups are getting top billing at major festivals. This year, Lollapalooza is making history by announcing Tomorrow X Together (TXT) as the first K-pop group to headline the festival, following Blackpink’s headlining performance at Coachella last year. TXT, a five-member group signed to BTS’ label BigHit Entertainment, will be performing alongside other superstar names like Kendrick Lamar, Billie Eilish, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Odesza, Lana Del Rey, Karol G, and 1975.

TXT made its first official U.S. festival appearance last year at Lollapalooza, and the massive crowd convinced organizers to give them headliner status this year. The festival will also feature the first U.S. performance by K-pop rookies NewJeans, who have already achieved surprising success on the Billboard charts. In addition to the K-pop acts, festival-goers can look forward to a diverse range of performers like Fred again.., Maggie Rogers, Diplo, Rina Sawayama, Sabrina Carpenter, Lil Yachty, and many more.
Lollapalooza 2023 will take place from August 3-6 at its usual location at Grant Park in Chicago, IL. Tickets are available for purchase, and for those who can’t attend in person, the festival will also be streamed online. This year’s festival promises to be an event for the ages, with an exciting mix of established and emerging artists from a wide range of genres.
