Lollapalooza 2019 Predictions & Rumors

Surprise! It’s never too early to start throwing out predictions for Lollapalooza. Last year I started my list in November – this year I’m coming in hot even earlier.

As usual, these predictions are based off of my own research and buzz on the Lollapalooza Reddit thread. I don’t and will never take all credit for these predictions on my own. I read a lot and form predictions based on who I listen to on my own.

I’ll let readers know every time this post is updated, but it has officially started on October 2, 2018.

UPDATED on March 19 with confirmed artists that Lollapalooza shared on their YouTube page at 2pm CST.


Festival Review: Lollapalooza 2018

Another Lollapalooza has come and go in the blink of an eye. This year brought even more 14-year-olds, a ridiculous amount of body glitter and a whole lot of chaos. While it’s easy to argue that the demographic has absolutely shifted into the more annoying direction (in my humble opinion), I also think it’s important to note that C3 did a great job nabbing some of the most interesting rising acts (if you dig deep into the lineup enough – not many people do) – and managed to get some of the biggest names in alternative/indie music to help balance out the Top 40 mania that swept through Grant Park over the weekend. Was it an even split? Probably not.

5 Things To Take from This Year’s Lollapalooza Lineup


If you’re no stranger to my blog, you know that I focus a lot of my free time on Chicago’s Lollapalooza festival. I’ve written countless posts on my experiences at the festival as well as numerous posts predicting the lineup.

After attending the festival for the fifth time in 2017, I found myself wondering if I would come back for another 4 days. I was beyond exhausted and ready to head back to the real world where I could make my own meal and go to the bathroom in anything but a port-a-potty. But who am I kidding? I knew the second that rumors started flying, I would be back for the sixth year.

Another Lollapalooza has come and gone, and I hate to say that as much as I love this festival and tell everyone I know that it’s my favorite days of the year, ever year, I have to admit that I was relieved for it to a come to a close this year.

It wasn’t because the festival didn’t deliver as it usually does, or that I didn’t enjoy myself per usual, but because of how exhausted a four day music festival truly is. This is my first year attending Lollapalooza while simultaneously working a full time job and ladies and gentlemen, adulting is hard. I am nowhere near as used to staying up until 2 or 3 am during the summer like I used to – and the long days of standing, walking, and drinking (for some of us) definitely took a toll on me this year.
