Ariana Grande is absolutely dominating the festival circuit this year.
First, it was confirmed she took Kanye West’s place to perform at Coachella this year. (Tame Impala reportedly took Justin Timberlake’s spot.) Now, she’s expected to headline another major U.S. music festival.
According to Variety, Grande has been officially booked for Lollapalooza. It’s even possible Coachella took Lollapalooza’s lead in booking her for 2019 — or, vice versa.
The rumors of a Lollapalooza headline make total sense considering Grande has rearranged her tour schedule to make way for festival gigs. Especially with Coachella coming on so suddenly, she had to make some sacrifices.
The Sweetener Tour is scheduled to kick off on March 18 in Albany. This marks the pop star’s third arena tour. Some of those arena tour dates will just have to wait. See full list of changes and cancellations here.
As for Lollapalooza, it could be weeks or even months before an official lineup announcement. The music festival is set to take place at Chicago’s Grant Park over August 1-4.
