Some of the biggest names like ‘Pearl Jam’, ‘Red Hot Chili Peppers’, ‘Nine Inch Nails’, ‘Rage Against The Machine’ that were brought to the world stage through their early performances at Lollapalooza, went on to make history. BookMyShow is proud to bring Lollapalooza to India – making it the 8th country and the 4th continent to do so. With a mix of some stellar Indian talent and global artists coming together on the same stage, we expect nothing short of magic.”
“The music of India is transcendental, it draws our spirits East,” said Perry Farrell, Founder, Lollapalooza, ahead of the festival’s first India edition. “Lollapalooza is an instrument for unity, peace, and education utilising the universal languages of music and art to find common ground. You may be excited, and we are equally as excited!”
“Lollapalooza has always been about exploring boundaries, musically and geographically. We are excited to introduce Indian and Asian fans to an entirely new festival experience that has been a significant rite of passage for millions of music fans around the world for more than three decades,” said Charlie Walker, Partner, C3 Presents.
