It's one thing to land on the lineup of an iconic music festival, but it's another to be named a headliner of said festival as J-Hope of BTS just did.

Days before BTS is expected to drop their 48-song anthology album, Lollapalooza dropped the lineup for this year's festival and announced it'll be none other than the K-pop singer who will close out the festival.

Poised to take place July 28–31 in Grant Park, J-Hope will round things out with a headlining set on the final day of the festival.

"[J-Hope's] performance will make history, cementing him as the first South Korean artist to ever headline a main stage at a major US music festival," Lolla wrote on Instagram.

Other headliners include J. Cole, Dua Lipa, Metallica, Lil Baby, and Machine Gun Kelly, with other notable performers like King Princess, Dominic Fike, Gracie Abrams, Denzel Curry, The Kid LAROI, and Fletcher – who just wrapped a tour with up-and-comer Julia Wolf – also making the cut.

All ticket types to the four-day festival are on sale now, but with a lineup this fire, Lolla is sure to sell out fast!
