When Malia Obama braves the crowd and heads to a music festival with her friends, you know it has to be something good. So this year, we might just check out Lollapalooza for ourselves—especially after seeing 2017’s amazing lineup. Take a look at our handy guide ahead, breaking down the big things you need to know. Then, go ahead and book that ticket to Chicago (you know you want to). 

 

When Is It?

This year’s festival will run from August 3 to 6 and take place in Grant Park, Chicago, as usual.

 

When Do Tickets Go On Sale?

Tickets are on sale now! General admission is selling out pretty quick, but there are still VIP, platinum, and hotel packages to choose from.

 

Who Is Playing?

This year’s lineup is pretty good, with Chance the Rapper, Arcade Fire, and Lorde headlining the shows. Plus Muse, Blink-182, Ryan Adams, Tov Lo, and Big Sean are just a few of the other *big* names that are listed. So, yeah. It’s gonna be a good show.

 

What Else Is There to Do?

Just looking at the event’s site, you’ll see that past years have had a variety of good eats, an art market, and even an adorable festival for kids. The better your ticket, the more perks you get, like access to spa treatments and private bars.
