Lollapalooza 2020 Predictions & Rumors

We’re baaaaaaaack.

Every time I share one of these posts, they end up being one of my most read of the entire year. I’m excited to get back to these speculations even though it’ll be TBD if I am attending next year’s festival all weekend long. After this year, I’m convinced I won’t ever do 4 days again. We’ll see.

This is very lax, I just like throwing out predictions and reading up on rumors. Per usual, I take a lot of insight from the Lollapalooza thread every year. You can check that out here.

Headliners

The 1975
Billie Eilish – she’s headliner status at this point. Her Chicago show at the United Center is in March. She can easily come back for August.
Coldplay – new album out this month.
Kanye West – we basically throw this out every year. Though it never sticks, his name is always thrown around.
Lana Del Rey – Could go to Pitchfork, though I think she’s above their pay grade since she’s headlined Lollapalooza before.
Lorde – I CAN DREAM!
No Doubt – could be for Riot Rest.
Race Against The Machine – explanation here.
Taylor Swift – hear me out. She’s playing in Massachusetts Friday and Saturday before Lolla. Could it be she flies to Chicago to close out the festival? While I think it’s unrealistic, nothing’s impossible: especially after Ariana closed this year.
