Lollapalooza released official 2011 lineup
Lollapalooza is an annual music festival featuring popular heavy metal, alternative rock, hip hop, and punk rock bands, dance and comedy performances, and craft booths. It has also provided a platform for non-profit and political groups. Lollapalooza has featured a diverse range of bands and has helped expose and popularize alternative rock groups such as Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, Primus, Rage Against the Machine, Nine Inch Nails, Jane’s Addiction, Soundgarden, Siouxsie & the Banshees, The Smashing Pumpkins, Muse, Alice in Chains, Tool, Hole, 30 Seconds to Mars, The Strokes, Lady Gaga, and Green Day.
After the news of the ‘Coachella lineup’, it seems like every other music festival is eager to release their official lineups. I just saw that the Lollapalooza lineup was released, and it seems ‘whatever.’ Probs just got insecure that Coachy was getting so much buzz, so they were like “We gotta announce this shit asap so we don’t lose out on some memes.” Just the usual. Not sure if I will buy tix or what. Already see a lot of these bands when I watch MTV/MTV2, so u know whatever.
Lollapalooza is conceived and created in 1991 by Jane’s Addiction singer Perry Farrell as a farewell tour for his band, Lollapalooza ran annually until 1997, and was revived in 2003. From its inception through 1997, and its revival in 2003, the festival toured North America. In 2004, the festival organizers decided to expand the dates to two days per city, but poor ticket sales forced the 2004 tour to be cancelled. In 2005, Farrell and the William Morris Agency partnered up with Austin, Texas-based company Capital Sports Entertainment (now C3 Presents) and retooled it into its current format as a weekend destination festival in Grant Park, Chicago, Illinois. In 2010 it was announced that Lollapalooza would debut overseas, with a branch of the festival staged in Chile’s capital Santiago on April 2-3, 2011.
