'Hobipalooza' trends as BTS J-Hope bags first solo gig headlining Lollapalooza Music Festival
It's always enjoyable for fans to witness BTS members be a part of international events as fans of the boy group outside South Korea are usually left unfed when it comes to content. Over the years, BTS has always been performing as a group when they are abroad but it feels like things are changing. On June 8 it was announced that BTS' rapper and sunshine - J-Hope (Jung Hoseok) will be headlining an international music festival in the USA.
This will be J-Hope's first international solo gig but the rapper is not new to the international scene. Back in 2019, BTS' Hobi was in the states as he collaborated with singer Becky G for his solo single, 'Chicken Noodle Soup'. J-Hope is returning to the US for the first time as a solo artist in three years and this time, the rapper will be attending the Lollapalooza Music Festival in Chicago, one of the biggest music festivals in the country.
BTS J-Hope becomes the first Korean headliner for Lolapalooza Festival
Twitter immediately broke when it was announced that the 'Daydream' rapper had bagged his first solo event, a music festival performance in the USA. Over the years, the rapper has always been part of domestic as well as international events as a member of BTS which is why this event becomes very special for fans of J-Hope.
J-Hope will appear as a headliner (signboard performer) on the final day of the Lolapalooza Festival on July 31 this year. This makes J-Hope the first-ever Korean solo artist to perform as a headliner on the main stage of the music festival. The event is extremely special for fans of BTS as J-Hope was named on the headliner list along with the likes of the internationally famous band Green Day as well as soloists like Charli XCX and rapper The Kid Laroi.
Not only that but Big Hit Music labelmates of BTS, the five-member boy group TXT will also be appearing at the festival making it their first international headlining event. TXT will appear at the same festival on its penultimate day on July 30. This means that BTS' J-Hope and TXT's Yeonjun, Soobin, Taehyun, Beomgyu, and Huening Kai will be the only six South Korean artists to appear at the 2022 Lollapalooza Music Festival this July.
