Kanye and Common To Appear at This Summer’s Lollapalooza Festival
Hometown MCs Kanye West and Common will appear at this summer’s alternative music festival Lollapalooza, which will take place from August 4-6 in Chicago’s Grant Park. First organized in 1991 by Jane’s Addiction frontman Perrry Farrell, the event toured with the biggest names in alternative rock and hip-hop around the U.S. through 1997. It was revived in 2002 and eventually recast in 2005 not as a tour, but as a two-day festival in Chicago. Gnarls Barkley, UK rapper Lady Sovereign and West Coast underground favorites Blackalicious and Lyrics Born are also scheduled to appear at this year’s event.
