Lollapalooza is making history with this year’s festival, as J-Hope of BTS is set to headline the main stage on Sunday (July 31). The performance marks the first South Korean artist to headline a main stage at a major U.S. festival.
J-Hope is replacing Doja Cat on the lineup, as the “Woman” singer announced in May that a medical issue with her tonsils requiring surgery will sideline her planned tour with The Weeknd and festival dates this summer. “Hi guys. I wanted you to hear it from me first,” she started the message, with white text over a background. “Unfortunately I have to have surgery on my tonsils asap. The surgery is routine but the recovery is going to take awhile due to swelling. That means I have to cancel my festival run this summer as well as The Weeknd tour. I feel horrible about this but can’t wait for this to heal and get back to making music and create an experience for y’all.”
