The Origins of Lollapalooza

Lollapalooza was created by Perry Farrell, the lead singer of Jane's Addiction, as a way to say goodbye to his band. The festival was intended to be a traveling show that would feature a diverse range of musical acts, as well as performance art, visual art, and other forms of entertainment. The first Lollapalooza took place in 1991, and it was a huge success. It quickly became one of the most important events on the summer music calendar and helped to launch the careers of many up-and-coming bands.
