What Is Lollapalooza?

Lollapalooza is a kind of festival oriented towards music. It is usually presented with an anthem, usually a particular musical genre, music from one artist, music from a region or country, or music that is connected to a holiday. The event, while truly festive and festival, also serves as a platform for non-profit and political groups espousing various social issues. It also hosts more than 160,000 people over a three-day period and features a wide range of bands and other artists who benefit from the exposure that the festival brings.
Perry Farrell, frontman alt-rock band Jane’s Addiction, created the event in 1991 as the platform for his band’s farewell tour. Lollapalooza ran until 1997, then revived in 2003. From its inception, the festival has toured North America. In 2004, the festival organizers decided to expand the dates to two days for every city. However, poor ticket sales forced the event to be cancelled.
In 2005, Farrell partnered with William Morris Agency, the largest talent agency in the world, and Capitol Sports Entertainment, an independent concert promotion, event production and artist management company. Lollapalooza was retooled into the form of music festival that it is today—a weekend destination festival in Grant Park. Today, the festival features popular bands of alternative rock, heavy metal, punk rock, and hip-hop music.
Aside from song performances, dance is also usually added to Lollapalooza events to add another layer of creativity to the festivities. Comedy performances are also present, as well as craft booths.
