The Legends of Lollapalooza


Post Malone was one of four headliners last year at the Lollapalooza festival. Speculation has been flying about this year’s headliners as the “Legends of Lolla” game continues to tease users.

I don’t know about you, but I am literally bouncing off the wall waiting for Lollapalooza 2022.  In fact, I even signed up to join the text list in January.  So, you can imagine my happiness when I got the first automated text on Tuesday the (  ).  

“Your 2022 journey is about to begin!”  The text that immediately followed announced that the lineup would be released on Tuesday the 22nd at 10 am, and 4-day tickets would be available for purchase at 12 pm.  I’ve been browsing Twitter and Reddit trying to find some lineup leaks and rumors, and then on March 17th, Lollapalooza released a mini game called “Legend of Lolla”, in which you pick one of three characters to play as and play an arcade style game with trippy graphics to uncover different artists of the lineup.  

Within the same day the game was released, Reddit users had already begun a list of confirmed performers.  Still Woozy, Don Toliver, Doja Cat, and Lil Baby were some of the performers that got users most excited, especially because Doja Cat will be touring with The Weeknd throughout the summer.  However, the game hits a bit of a stopping point as it seems that there are very few new performers for players to discover.  It makes sense that Lollapalooza wouldn’t release their full lineup for the game, but who else might be in attendance? 

A$AP Rocky, Dua Lipa, and Wallows are all rumored artists based on other festivals they’re attending, and whether or not their tour has Chicago shows listed.  Other artists that are rumored based on recent releases are the Arctic Monkeys and Tame Impala.  

The full lineup will be released in just a few days, and I can definitely feel the anticipation building.  Personally, I hope to see A$AP Rocky, Wallows, the Arctic Monkeys, and Tame Impala.  With “Legend of Lolla”, the list of rumored performers continues to decrease, as artists are either categorized as confirmed or out of the question.  Based on the incredible lineup last year, I’m sure this year we’ll be seeing even more Legends of Lollapalooza.
