While Fresno rapper Fashawn has had a big couple weeks (signing to Nas’ Mass Appeal Records and killin’ it on stage in Germany), Fresno’s own teen idol (and looks to be bonafide pop star) Ryan Beatty announced a new slate of tour dates that includes a slot at Lollapalooza.

This is a big move for the 18-year old singer (one of the youngest performers at the festival), and sign that he’s growing into more than a flash-in-the-pan pop singer. Lollapalooza is arguably the best known American music festival (second maybe to Coachella) and is has a lineup full of heavy hitters: Eminen, Outkast, Kings of Leon, Lorde, Foster the People, Interpol, Grouplove, AFI and The Airborne Toxic Event (which features another Fresno ex-pat, so there).

The announcement follows an Easter performance at the White House and a meet-and-greet with hundred of fans during Beatty’s first trip to Paris. Beatty is still working on his long-awaited debut album and continuing to grow his fan base — last week the singer hit 1 million likes on Facebook.

Joshua Tehee is an entertainment guy. Music runs in his veins. Like seriously, you cut him open and there's no blood-- just music. It's weird.
