Goldman Sachs CEO to DJ Set at Lollapalooza This Summer – NBC Chicago


The Goldman Sachs CEO is set to play a DJ set at Lollapalooza this summer. Yes, you read that right.

Investment banker David Soloman will take the stage in Chicago’s Grant Park in late July, alongside artists like Dua Lipa, J. Cole, Green Day and Metallica.

“Excited to be playing @lollapalooza for the first time this summer. Proceeds benefit various nonprofits in partnership with @paybackrecords!” Solomon wrote in a post on his music‘s Instagram page.

Solomon’s social media account bio for sharing his DJ music reads:

@goldmansachs CEO, dad, music fan, DJ since 2015. All proceeds benefit charities in the fight against addiction @paybackrecords

In February, Solomon performed a set alongside headliners Kygo and Jack Harlow at Sports Illustrated The Party in Los Angeles, according to his account.

The businessman and DJ released his Spotify Wrapped recap in December, revealing that his music had received over 13 million streams for almost 4 million listeners in 175 countries.

Lollapalooza, the city’s biggest music festival, will also include sets from Doja Cat, Machine Gun Kelly, Lil Baby, Kygo, Glass Animals and Big Sean, among others, organizers announced this week.

Here is an overview of the full range:

The festival will be held at full capacity from July 28 to 31.

Four-day tickets, which include options for general admission, GA+, VIP, Platinum, and hotel packages, are still available on the Lollapalooza website. Queues and day tickets will be released at a later date.

Organizers noted that health and safety policies — such as negative tests, masks and proof of vaccination — may be required for the event, like last year. Details of all necessary measures will be announced before the festival.

Illinois and Chicago eased their COVID restrictions, lifting their indoor mask and proof of vaccination requirements on Feb. 28. Lollapalooza is billed, among many other summer festivals, to return to its pre-pandemic size and scope.
