Because this is the only date she has so far secured, superstar Billie Eilish will likely make this her sole visit in the United States this year. However, according to “Brady,” the afternoon host and musical director of 103.5 Kiss-FM, this year’s roster has received favorable initial feedback.
At Lollapalooza last year, artists like Metallica, Dua Lipa, J. Cole, Green Day, Doja Cat, and others performed. A viral encounter between Metallica and Joseph Quinn, as Stranger Things metalhead Eddie Munson, occurred during Metallica’s performance at the festival. Fireworks hurt Lil Durk, protestors blasted the festival’s waived youth curfew for what they saw as a double standard, and a security guard was accused of fabricating a warning of a mass shooting. The festival was also dogged by controversy.
