BTS’ J-hope and TXT are the first K-pop acts to perform at Lollapalooza 2022
It looks like K-pop is actually about to take over the West, as Coachella transformed into a mini K-pop festival for the first time, featuring tons of iconic acts, from GOT7’s Jackson and aespa to 2NE1 who reunited for the first time. BTS fans were pleasantly surprised when it was announced that J-hope would become the first South Korean artist to headline a major US music festival with Lollapalooza in 2022. As if that wasn’t enough, it turns out that Lollapalooza also has his labelmates, the premier fourth-generation boy band TXT. And her label is going all out as Weverse will be streaming it live for free.
With J-hope already in Chicago and The Lab sharing his and Becky G’s viral collaboration Chicken Noodle Soup, fans are thinking we’ll be getting a live stage at Lollapalooza. On the other hand, TXT is already in the US for their first world tour “Act: Love Sick” which kicked off on July 7th in Chicago, even though they were personally invited to perform at the music festival. Well, even if you’re not in Chicago, international fans can watch the BTS star and TXT for free on Weverse and Hulu.
