Launched by founder Perry Farrell in 1991 as a touring festival, Lollapalooza remains an innovator in festival culture 25 years later. Lollapalooza was the first festival to bring together artists from a wide range of musical genres on one bill, it was also the first to travel, the first to expand to multiple days, the first to introduce a second stage, the first to blend art and activism, the first to offset its carbon emissions, the first to put electronic dance music artists on the main stage, the first to create family friendly programming, the first to make its home in an urban city center and the first to expand internationally.
Lollapalooza has grown into an annual world-class festival in Chicago (2005), as well as culturally rich countries including Chile (2011), Brazil (2012), Argentina (2014) and Germany (2015). Lollapalooza is one of the premier destinations both for music fans in the United States and abroad. In 2015, Lollapalooza hosted 300,000 attendees over three days and provided over 155 million dollars in local economic impact. In celebration of the 25th Anniversary, Lollapalooza has expanded to four days in 2016, featuring more than 170 artists performing on 8 stages.
Lollapalooza is produced by Perry Farrell, William Morris Endeavor Entertainment and C3 Presents.
