Goldman Sachs CEO David ‘DJ D-Sol’ Solomon plays at Lollapalooza

Goldman Sachs Chief Executive Officer David Solomon, who works part-time as a techno DJ, will be performing as DJ D-Sol at this year’s Lollapalooza music festival.

Solomon will join singers like Dua Lipa, Metallica, Doja Cat and Green Day at the famous four-day party in Chicago.

While Solomon frequently performs at small clubs in Miami and New York, Lollapalooza is his biggest gig to date.

Tenacious Solomon – who has caused controversy with his part-time DJ performances amid complaints from junior bankers about 100-hour workweeks – has defends spinning records saying it helps his “left-brain and right-brain” balance.

The 60-year-old financial titan said on a podcast last year that his side hustle at Goldman initially raised eyebrows when he was told, “You can’t do this… It’s going to hurt your professional career.”

“I thought about it and said, ‘I’m enjoying this, I’m not doing anything wrong,'” Solomon said. “I’m having fun… it makes me feel good.”

This year’s Chicago music festival will feature performances by Machine Gun Kelly and Kygo.

A source close to Solomon said that despite his ambitious management style, many Goldman employees have accepted and even embraced their boss’ DJ habit.

“People respect commitment and he works hard at it,” the source said. His performances set an example for goldmanites to find employment outside of the office and have made him more accessible and relatable to younger employees, the source added.

Still others say Solomon’s musical pursuits have sometimes rubbed staff the wrong way. Last summer, on the eve of employees returning to the office, he released a new single entitled “Learn to Love Me.”

The performances have also landed him in hot water.

In the summer of 2020, Solomon opened for The Chainsmokers at a charity event in the Hamptons, which came under fire for violating social distancing guidelines. The concert sparked so much anger that then-Governor Cuomo said the Department of Health would investigate the performance.

A spokesman declined to comment on Solomon’s performance.

The Lollapaolooza event will be held July 28-31 at Chicago’s Grant Park. Tickets range from $350 to over $4,000. Lollapalooza has been on hiatus since the coronavirus outbreak, but attracted almost 400,000 visitors at the last festival in 2019. Goldman Sachs CEO David ‘DJ D-Sol’ Solomon plays at Lollapalooza
