Chicago’s Chance the Rapper will be one of theLollapalooza 2017 headliners along with Arcade Fire, Muse and The Weeknd, a source tells Chicago music news site Consequence of Sound.

An official announcement of the roster is scheduled for 6 a.m. Wednesday, with one-day tickets going on sale at 10 a.m. Four-day passes went on sale Tuesday and quickly sold out.

The festival takes place Aug. 3-6 at Grant Park.

Speculation about Chance playing the annual extravaganza has been strong since the recent Grammy winner left Chicago off his announcement of an extensive 2017 tour. The rapper fanned the flames with a tweet Tuesday morning:

This would be his debut as a headliner in his hometown’s biggest festival after playing smaller stages in 2013 and 2014.

It also would mark the third Lolla appearance of Arcade Fire, a headliner in 2010, and Muse. The Weeknd was a headliner in 2015.
