Billy Strings to Perform at 2022 Lollapalooza Festival Alongside Impressive Headliners

Billy Strings will take the stage at Grant Park along with titans of the music industry including Metallica, Dua Lipa, J. Cole, Green Day, Doja Cat, Machine Gun Kelly, Lil Baby, and Kygo. The festival will take place from July 28-31 this summer.

Born and raised in Muir, Michigan, bluegrass musician and guitarist Billy Strings has made a name for himself in music. At just 29 years old, the young artist already holds a Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album for his song “Home,” which he won at last year’s Awards ceremony.

This year, he added two more nominations to his list of accolades. Billy Strings was nominated for both Best American Roots Performance (for “Love and Regret”) and best Bluegrass Album (for Renewal). This year’s Grammy Awards take place in less than 2 weeks, so keep your fingers crossed, Billy Strings fans!

Other Major Artists Performing at Lollapalooza 2022

Though Lollapalooza’s roots are in alternative rock, the festival has no problem platforming artists of all genres. The festival includes an impressive blend of metal, hip-hop, pop, and bluegrass – and that’s just the headliners!

The second tier of artists features none other than the group with the No. 1 song in the country, Glass Animals. Look a little further down the list and you’ll find Gayle, who took social media by storm with her hit song “Abcdefu”.

The fact that Gayle is all the way down on the 16th line of the poster is a testament to just how much star power Lollapalooza managed to sign this year. A few other notable performers include Dashboard Confessional, Zach Bryan, Still Woozy, Tove Lo, Willow, Manchester Orchestra, and Goth Babe.
