Transcript of Lollapalooza

It all started back in 1991 when Perry Farrell, lead singer of fabled alternative rockers Jane's Addiction started planning a farewell show for the group.

Annual event between April - August
A larger-than-life musical roadshow that brings music, culture, and community to fans all over the world
Lollapalooza was created in 1991 and was hosted annually touring North America as a one day event per city until 1997

Revived in 2003 and in 2004 they decided to expand to an two day event per city. But, this got canceled due to poor ticket sales
In 2005 the Lollapalooza changed to a weekend destination in Grant Park, Chicago

This structure still remains as a 3 day event
Lollapalooza was also held in Chile's capital Santiago in 2011 and Sao Paulo, Brazil in 2012

What characteristics of the event link to Chicago?
Where it all began... Chicago
"The fact that the festival takes place in Grant Park is probably the most unique thing about Lollapalooza. While other festivals take place in the middle of nowhere, Lolla is right in the heart of Chicago. Few things are cooler than watching a headliner and looking around at the city lights once the sun goes down. I wouldn't want to spend the first weekend of August anywhere else."
"We heard about the show and Kurt and I got tickets somehow and decided to go down. And when we arrived, there were more piercings, more tribal tattoos and more Rollins Band T-shirts than I’d ever seen in one place at one time. That was early summer. By that fall, radio and MTV and music had changed,”
“I can’t even count how many people Perry’s opened the doors for.”


Quoted by Dave Grohl
Before the Internet, there wasn't a great way to get music from up-and-coming bands to the fans. So Farrell thought this would be a fun and successful way to get the music across to fans.
"Farrell's festival did it with flair, pulling together diverse acts for a culture-spanning celebration the world had never seen"
"promises to be one of the summer’s most thrilling and memorable live music events"
