Started by Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell in 1991, Lollapalooza was a North American touring festival until the early 2000s, when it was reinvented as a destination event in the Windy City. There have also been versions of Lollapalooza in Chile, Brazil, Germany, Sweden, Argentina and France.
Farrell told us a while back that the festival’s location has been a key to its success: [“We got a centrally located city within a centrally located state. You’ve got a gorgeous lake that sends kind of a mist and a breeze out over the location. What is amazing and what is unique about us is that we are an urban destination festival. You know, there are a few other festivals, but they’re always someplace, you know, pretty far away from the city.”] SOUNDCUE (:21 OC: . . . from the city.)
