The festival partnered with PAWS, a local Chicago dog rescue centre, to announce the first names.

The first names for this year’s edition of Lollapalooza are out!

In the best line-up rollout we’ve seen in some time, the Chicago festival has partnered with PAWS, a local dog rescue centre to reveal that Tame Impala, Janelle Monáe and more are set to play its 2019 edition, which takes place this August.

Also on the initial line-up - which is teased by a host of lovely little pups rifling through a ballpit while a narrator slowly reveals clues as to names on the bill - are Lil Wayne, Slash, Pink Sweats, Calpurnia, J Balvin, Lil Skies, Madeon, Gunna, Yaeji, Lil Baby, Rosalia, Rufus Du Sol and Tenacious D.
