Normani – Day 1 – 4 p.m. – 4:45 p.m.

Remember all the drama that happened in 2018 when Fifth Harmony announced it’s indefinite hiatus? Well, Normani decided to use that energy and turn it into a successful solo career. Normani is an American singer and dancer that is excited to perform at Lollapalooza this year. In 2017 she was a finalist in season 24 of dancing with the stars and I’m not saying it had anything to do with her song “Dancing with a Stranger”. But, her song is a hit and you will hear her perform live if you’re lucky enough to have tickets to this 4-day event in Grant Park.
