Lollapalooza 2017: Chance the Rapper, Lorde, Arcade Fire top 170-band lineup

Chance the Rapper, Arcade Fire and Lorde are among the headliners announced Wednesday for Lollapalooza this summer in Chicago.

Muse, the XX, Blink-182, DJ Snake and Justice also are stacked at the top of the festival, which returns to Grant Park on Aug. 3-6. One-day tickets ($120) go on sale at 10 a.m. Wednesday at lollapalooza.com.

Among the 170 bands scheduled for eight stages over four days are Cage the t-climbers sprinkled throughout the lineup.

The overall lineup continues to show signs of strain. Last year, the festival spread to four days from three for the first time, and the talent thinned out — there simply aren’t enough quality bands and artists touring each summer to fill that many slots. Similarly, there appears to be an awful lot of filler to wade through each day this year to get to the gems.

Here’s a breakdown of each day’s lineup:

Aug. 3: Muse, Lorde, Cage the Elephant, Wiz Khalifa, Porter Robinson, Liam Gallagher, Migo, Spoon, Lil Uzi Vert, Jon Bellion, George Ezra, Capital Cities, Kaytranada, Baauer, the Drums, A-Trak, Tritonal, Gryffin, CRX, Temples, Suicideboys, Hippo Campus, Honne, Cheat Codes, Kevin Devine, Paper Diamond, Middle Kids, the Hunna, Oliver Tree, Jain, the O’My’s, Declan McKenna, Unlike Pluto, Atlas Genius, Arizona, Gibbz, Pham, Michael Blume, Elohim, Stanaj, Kweku Collins, Max.

Lorde’s ascent was affirmed with her performance at Lollapalooza in 2014. Now her second album, “Melodrama,” due out June 16, is one of the year’s most anticipated releases, and the 20-year-old New Zealand singer is sure to draw one of the weekend’s biggest crowds. Haitian-Canadian DJ Kaytranada will bring a heady inventiveness to his club beats. Spoon’s terse, taut melodies will keep the frills to a minimum. Chicago MC Kweku Collins will likely draw an early slot, so don’t be tardy.

Aug. 4: The Killers, Blink-182, DJ Snake, Run the Jewels, Foster the People, Ryan Adams, Grmatik, Phantogram, Tegan and Sara, Crystal Castles, Kaleo, Little Dragon, 3Lou, Whitney, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Majid Jordan, Getter, the Pretty Reckless, Slushii, Cloud Nothings, Jidenna, Mura Masa, Bishop Briggs, Dokay, the Districts, Pup, Moose Blood, Skott, the Lemon Twigs, Mondo Cozmo, San Holo, the Frights, Saint Jhn, Bibi Bourelly, Missio, Cobi, Moksi, Slothrust, Allan Rayman, Frenship, Harriet Brown, Jess Malin.

Run the Jewels is one of the best things about this day’s lineup and the entire weekend, for that matter — El-P and Killer Mike are one of the best duos in hip-hop history. Whitney quickly rose from local buzz band to international touring act on the heels of its excellent 2016 debut, “Light Upon the Lake.” Glam duo Lemon Twigs is coming off a much acclaimed series of performances at the recent South by Southwest Music Conference in Austin, Texas.

Aug. 5: Chance the Rapper, the XX, Alt-J, the Head and the Heart, Kaskade, Glass Animals, Vance Joy, Mac Demarco, Russ, 21 Savage, Banks, Sylvan Esso, Alison Wonderland, Live, Royal Blood, Nghtmre, Warpaint, Highly Suspect, Zara Larsson, Jai Wolf, Ephwurd, Alvvays, G Jones, Amine, San Fermin, the Japanese House, Leon, the Shelters, Blossoms, Jacob Banks, Michael Christmas, Flint Eastwood, Ron Gallo, Madeintyo, Young Bombs, the London Souls, 888, Wingtip, Colony House, Brayton Bowman, Lady Pills.

Chance is a seasoned festival performer already and is sure to pull out all the stops in this hometown headlining appearance. In its timing, his high-profile slot recalls Kanye West’s headlining appearance at the 2006 Lollapalooza when he brought out Common, Twista and Lupe Fiasco for cameos. Who will Chance’s guests be? Warpaint remains an excellent summer concert band with its slinky grooves and breezy vocals. Veteran Chicago DJ Kaskade puts songs and dynamics ahead of predictable crescendos.

Aug. 6: Arcade Fire, Justice, Big Sean, the Shins, Zeds Dead, Rae Sremmurd, Tove Lo, Milky Chance, Grouplove, DVBBS, Borgore, Lil Yachty, London Grammar, Rag ‘N’ Bone Man, Noname, Joey Badass, Charli XCX, Car Seat Headrest, Slander, Machine Gun Kelly, 6lack, Sampha, Maggie Rogers, NF, Joyryde, Joseph, Barns Courtney, Vant, Grace Mitchell, Blaenavon, Lo Moon, Dirty Audio, Whethan, Sofi Tukker, Xavier Omar, Boogie, Wax Motif, the Walters, Duckwrth, Spencer Ludwig, Flor, Goody Grace, Tucker Beathard.

The fifth Arcade Fire studio album is due out this year, and a new single, “I Give You Power,” features Mavis Staples. If the Chicago gospel-soul great is in town, is there anything that can keep her from making an appearance during the Montreal band’s headlining set? The Shins write beautiful songs but have never been a particularly dynamic live act. The screaming-fan ratio will be extremely high for hip-hop upstarts Rae Sremmurd and Lil Yachty, but expect Chicago’s gifted Noname to deliver one of the day’s most impressive sets. For a dose of cathartic guitar-rock, Car Seat Headrest is your ticket.

The Kidzapalooza stage, an annual fixture, will include performances by Tim Kubart & the Space Cadets, Lucky Diaz, Q Brothers, Sleepy Man, Jo Jo & the Pinecones, Lard Dog & the Band of Shy, Little Miss Ann, School of Rock Allstars.
