The Army is stampeding to watch Lollapalooza 2022 livestream online. That's because J-Hope of the K-pop sensation BTS is headlining the festival in Chicago's Grant Park. He is joined by fellow Lollapalooza headliners Metallica, Dua Lipa, Machine Gun Kelly, J. Cole and Green Day, as well as performers including Lil Baby, Kygo, Big Sean and Charli XCX. 

Lollapalooza 2022 dates and times

Lollapalooza 2022 is streaming on Hulu now.
Final performances are Sunday, July 31 at 11 p.m. ET.

More than 170 acts are performing across eight stages for this year’s event. For music lovers who can't attend Lollapalooza 2022 in person, Hulu is exclusively live-streaming select performances on two different channels over the course of the four-day festival.

While there are many big names, J-Hope is one of the most exciting. He is making history as the first South Korean artist to headline a major American music festival. BTS announced recently they are taking a hiatus, during which they'll explore solo projects (though their fans can still get band content from a BTS on Disney Plus deal). J-Hope just dropped the new album Jack in the Box, and he's sure to be followed by his fellow BTS members.

Here's everything you need to watch Lollapalooza 2022 livestreams online.
