Along with adding J-Hope, Lollapalooza also announced that rising K-Pop act Tomorrow X Together will perform this year as well. Not only will their July 30 set mark their U.S. festival debut, but their performance will also be the first by a K-Pop group at Lolla.

In total, Lollapalooza 2022 will feature over 170 artists across nine stages. A full lineup is available on the fest’s website.

Four-day general admission passes for Lollapalooza will go on sale Tuesday, March 22, at 1 p.m. ET/12 p.m. CT. Additional VIP packages will also be available, while single-day tickets will be available at a later date.
