Lollapalooza is almost here.
Starting Friday, July 31, music lovers from all over will head out to Grant Park, Chicago, for one of the summer's biggest music festivals. MTV has spent the past few months traveling the country to see some of our favorite acts perform at Hangout Fest, Bonnaroo and Mysteryland, but we won't be satisfied until we hit Lolla to see these 11 artists this weekend.

The Weeknd is on fire right now and the closer we get to the release of Beauty Behind the Madness, the more excited we get. This weekend's Weeknd performance is a must-see.

Sam Smith missed the first half of this summer's festival season after undergoing vocal chord surgery earlier this year. Now he's back and we're pumped for Lolla.
Charli XCXGetty Images
If you've never seen Charli live, then you don't know what you're missing. We fully expect the "Boom Clap" singer to rock Lolla and leave us begging for more.

It's not often we get to see Thugger perform. We're going to soak this one up.

The Queen of the Clouds has had us on a musical high all summer, ever since we saw her perform at Hangout Fest.
The TDE songstress has an amazing voice and real command of the stage. Can't wait until she does "Babylon."
A$AP RockyGetty Images
Rocky's At.Long.Last.A$AP is one of the year's best hip-hop projects and this weekend we'll be able to catch him perform some of our favorites.
Last year G-Eazy made his mark as one of MTV's Artists to Watch and this year the Oakland, California, rapper is rocking stages all over the world.

No one puts on a show like La Flame. NO ONE!

Tyler's Cherry Bomb LP sounds like it was recorded specifically for the live show.

Marina and the Diamonds have grown into one of the most exciting bands to emerge over the past few years and we can't wait to see them live.
