Lollapalooza 2019: Ariana Grande Booked To Headline Music Festival
Attention, all music fans! If you’re looking for a hot summer concert this year, then look no further than Lollapalooza, the annual festival held in Chicago.
Lolapalooza 2019 will take place at Chicago’s Grant Park from August 1 to 4, and Variety reported that pop megastar Ariana Grande will headline this year’s event.

Grande, 25, is set to have a busy 2019, as her Sweetener tour will continue and she is also scheduled to perform at Coachella in Indio, California, which will be held in April. The singer’s post-album hit “Thank U, Next” recently broke a record for the number of views on YouTube for its music video, and is considered a top breakup song. Grande released the song shortly after her split from comedian Pete Davidson, whom she was engaged to last year.
Davidson, who stars on Saturday Night Live, joked over the weekend about a comment Grande made about the size of his penis. The double-entendre joke came up after the singer reportedly misunderstood a question a fan asked about the length of her song “Pete Davidson,” which is on the Sweetener album.
Lolapalooza typically doesn’t announce its full lineup until around March, so fans will have to wait some time before learning who else will headline or perform at the festival.
Grande’s Sweetener tour is set to start on March 18 in Albany, New York. The singer’s two previous arena tours in 2017 and 2015 grossed $67 million and $42 million, respectively, per Pollstar.

Grande’s North American tour is expected to end on July 13. She recently added several cities to the tour, including a show in Las Vegas on May 11. Other cities Grande will perform in this year include Indianapolis, Raleigh, Omaha, St. Louis, Denver, St. Paul and Salt Late City.
