Tickets for the 2018 Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago went on sale today. And while tickets are still on sale, the hype for the impending lineup is at critical mass. Thankfully, Lollapalooza has jumped on the hype train (literally) to tease some artists on its upcoming lineup.


First, Lollapalooza has taken over an entire train on the Orange Line in Chicago’s Loop. The train has been running the past couple of hours, and songs from artists presumably on the Lollapalooza lineup have been playing during the train’s journey. Songs from the below artists have been played:

  • Rex Orange County
  • Lizzo
  • Bruno Mars
  • Lil Pump
  • CHVRCHES
  • Quinn XCII
  • Walk the Moon
  • Portugal. The Man
  • Post Animal
  • Bebe Rexha
  • Superorganism
  • NAV
  • Zedd
  • BROCKHAMPTON
  • Cuco
  • Vampire Weekend
  • Playboi Carti

While the above artists haven’t been directly confirmed, it’s clear that Lollapalooza is hinting that they will pop up on 2018’s lineup. Additionally, a mysterious Instagram account called Lolla Leaker has been posting pictures of emojis hinting at 2018 artists the past few weeks. The account was really discovered today as the official Lollapalooza Instagram account has been liking all of the leak account’s pictures.

Artists assumed to be hinted at on the account include:

  • Rainbow Kitten Surprise
  • The Weeknd or Space Jesus
  • Bruno Mars
  • Tyler, The Creator
