During this year’s Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago, David Solomon, the CEO of Goldman Sachs, will be apparently performing, along with headliners Dua Lipa, Metallica, J. Cole and Green Day. Wait, what?
It was confirmed on Tuesday that Solomon will be performing at Lollapalooza, and his name can be seen in the fourth row from the bottom of the set list, as shown above.
The DJ Solomon has been in the music industry since 2015, and in 2018 he started his own record label called Payback Records. By happenstance, 2018 was also the year he was promoted to the position of Chief Executive Officer of Goldman Sachs.
Solomon, who used to act under the stage name D-Sol, expresses his excitement about performing at the event for the first time on his Instagram page. He intends to contribute the money he earns from the performance to charitable organizations.
Payback Records and Solomon’s DJing career have earned a significant amount of money, which has been given to organizations that work to combat addiction.
“(I) kind of stumbled into it as a hobby, and now I just do it for fun,” the Goldman Sachs CEO said on the company’s podcast in 2017.
A representative for Goldman Sachs told CNN that Solomon DJs about four to six occasions every year. They said that some businessmen like golfing for recreation; Solomon DJs.
A number of his Instagram followers expressed their enthusiasm at the news of his landing a Lollapalooza performance, with several posting fire emojis alongside the announcement.
Some Lollapalooza fans, on the other hand, are perplexed as to why the festival is giving Solomon, a wealthy banker, a slot on stage. According to Reuters, Solomon made US $35 million last year, more than tripling his income from the previous year.
Chicago’s Grant Park will host the Lollapalooza music festival this year from July 28 to July 31. If you’re there, maybe you’ll stumble upon David Soloman’s set.
