Lollapalooza

Lollapalooza is an annual music festival featuring popular alternative rock, heavy metal, punk rock and hip hop bands, dance and comedy performances, and craft booths. It has also provided a platform for non-profit and political groups.
Conceived and created in 1991 by Jane's Addiction singer Perry Farrell as a farewell tour for his band, Lollapalooza ran annually until 1997, and was revived in 2003. From its inception through 1997, and its revival in 2003, the festival toured North America. In 2004, the festival organizers decided to expand the dates to two days per city, but poor ticket sales forced the 2004 tour to be cancelled. In 2005, Farrell and the William Morris Agency partnered up with Austin, Texas-based company Capital Sports Entertainment (now C3 Presents) and retooled it into its current format as a weekend destination festival in Grant Park, Chicago, Illinois. In 2010 it was announced that Lollapalooza would debut overseas, with a branch of the festival staged in Chile's capital Santiago. In 2011, the company Geo Events confirmed the Brazilian version of the event.
On September 13 the Argentine version appears, starting on April 2014 in Buenos Aires, and in November 2014, the first European Lollapalooza was announced, which was held at the former Tempelhof Airport in Berlin. On October 12, 2016, Lollapalooza announced that they would be hosting a festival in Paris, France. The first scandinavian edition of Lollapalooza was held in the capital of Sweden, Stockholm, on the 28-29 of June 2019.
