Lay Zhang Set to Join Alan Walker at Lollapalooza Tomorrow

Chinese singer-songwriter Lay Zhang is set to join DJ Alan Walker at the Lollapalooza festival tomorrow, Friday, August 3rd. Zhang will make his appearance during Alan Walker’s set, which runs from 4:45 – 5:45PM on the Perry Stage.

Walker revealed the surprise collaboration on Instagram, writing, “Happy to announce that @zyxzjs will be joining me on the @lollapalooza show in Chicago this Friday!”

He did not reveal any details, but told fans the two were “up to something good.”

Speaking about his upcoming appearance at Lollapalooza, Zhang says, “It’s my first time performing at a festival in the US, and also my first collaboration with Alan Walker. I hope the audience will enjoy this live performance, and that more and more people will remember me, the Chinese artist Lay Zhang.”

Also known as Zhang Yixing, or simply “Lay,” the artist has already made a name for himself in Asia, specifically in South Korea as a member of the K-pop group, EXO. Although still part of the group, Zhang decided to branch out and work on his solo career in 2015, which has since been met with much success. His first solo mini album, Lose Control, charted at #4 on Billboard’s US World Albums chart and also broke the record for most sales in South Korea by a solo artist. The artist is reportedly working on another studio album, set to release in the near future.

We can’t wait to see what Lay Zhang and Alan Walker have up their sleeves for their collaborations stage tomorrow.
