On July 31, J-Hope of BTS will be headlining Lollapalooza in Chicago. This event is extra special for ARMYs because of two reasons. One, this marks J-Hope’s first solo concert, and second, this will be the first time a South Korean act will headline a major US music festival.
So, no wonder ARMYs pulled up to get the tickets ASAP. In fact, the demand for a single-day ticket to Lollapalooza day 3 (now referred to as Hobipalooza) is the highest in the festival’s history.
A ticket to Lollapalooza on Sunday is the most in-demand single-day ticket on record for Lollapalooza at TickPick.
It is also the day that BTS' J-Hope is a headliner.

Earlier it was announced that Hulu will be streaming the performance live. This meant that only American fans could watch the livestream of J-Hope’s set.

But on July 27, Big Hit Music announced through Weverse that the show will also be broadcasted in real-time through Weverse App/PC and the Weverse TV App. The livestream will start on July 31, 9 PM CST (August 1, 11 AM KST).
Though the official setlist has not been revealed, J-Hope is expected to perform tracks from his new album Jack In The Box, as well as some of his old hits. Fans are speculating that a J-Hope and Becky G collaboration stage might also happen, since J-Hope’s dance crew The Lab posted Instagram stories of “Chicken Noodle Soup.”
