Lollapalooza’s return to Grant Park later this summer will feature Foo Fighters; Post Malone; Miley Cyrus, and Tyler, the Creator as headliners, organizers announced Wednesday, a day after the city confirmed it gave the green light for the festival to be held July 29 through Aug. 1.

Other popular acts slated to take the stage for the four-day event include Megan Thee Stallion, Steve Aoki and Modest Mouse. Daily schedules with details on set times for the whole lineup will be released at a later date.

Tickets went on sale at noon CT on Lollapalooza’s website. Four-day general admission passes were listed for $350, and prices will increase in phases as the festival’s start draws closer. It’ll cost a lot more if you’re looking for VIP access or a hotel package.

And while the festival will be held at “full capacity,” the city will require proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or negative COVID-19 test results in order to enter.

The presence of Foo Fighters atop the lineup isn’t a surprise after lead singer Dave Grohl appeared in a YouTube video with Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Tuesday to promote the festival. The band is having a busy 2021, with a recent appearance at the “Vax Live” charity event and tour dates picking up.
