Journey from Chicago to Mumbai
Lollapalooza was first organised at Grant Park in Chicago in 1991 by Perry Farrell, a singer of the alternative rock band Jane’s Addiction. The event started as a multi-city event. However, in 1998 the festival went without a headlining act and was threatened with permanent closure.
This was when Farrell decided to ditch the touring model and stick to the band’s original performing location that is Chicago. Since then, the festival is celebrated as a four-day music fest that is attended by lakhs of people from across the globe.
So what brings Lollapalooza to India?
The festival’s founder, Farrell, said "The music of India is transcendental, it draws our spirits East. Lollapalooza is an instrument for unity, peace, and education utilizing the universal languages of music and art to find common ground. You may be excited, and we are equally as excited!”
With this, India becomes the eighth country to host this iconic Lollapalooza Music Festival. Stay tuned for more information on venue, ticket bookings and lineup.
