Canadian singer-songwriter and popstar Carly Rae Jepsen was just added to this year’s Lollapalooza music festival lineup, replacing Jessie Ware.
Due to “unforseen circumstances,” Ware will not longer take the stage, but the festival was quick to announce Jepsen to take her spot. Lollapalooza is set to commence this year from August 2 through 5 in Chicago’s Grant Park. Headlining acts include Bruno Mars, Jack White, Arctic Monkeys, and The Weeknd. Jepsen, who will perform on the Lake Shore Stage on Saturday, August 4, will play alongside acts like Dua Lipa, Logic, Zedd, and Vampire Weekend.
Preceding the Lollapalooza performance, Jepsen will perform at the Orpheum Theatre in Vancouver on June 25. Additionally, she is slated make an appearance at Outside Lands music festival in San Francisco, California in August and will headline the All Things Go 2018 Fall Classic festival in Washington D.C. this October.
The “Call Me Maybe” singer’s latest record, Emotion, was released in 2015 – which means this June would mark the third year since its release. The record featured singles “I Really Like You,” “All That,” and “Run Away.” Since her hit album Kiss dropped in 2012 with smashing tunes like “I Really Like You” and “Good Time” with Owl City, Jepsen has garnered enough attention to be considered one of the top women in pop music. Her fans are patiently awaiting a new album, hoping that this new performance might be an opportunity for Jepsen to drop the new “disco” music she’s hinted at.
