One of the biggest music festivals in the country will get even bigger next year.

Lollapalooza , celebrating its 25th year in 2016, announced that it will offer musical acts Thursday through Sunday, instead of kicking off the festival on a Friday.

The festival is scheduled for July 28-31 in Chicago's Grant Park.

Festival organizers say the 2016 edition will feature more than 170 musical performances.

Four-day admission tickets start at $335 and will be available in the spring.

The festival annually sells out its daily capacity of 100,000.

It's not clear if the four-day format is only a one-year deal. Lollapalooza has made its home in Chicago since 2005 after its initial incarnation as a traveling festival.
