Lollapalooza Chile Set for 2011
Perry Farrell will bring Lollapalooza to South America this spring. Lollapalooza Chile will take place at O’Higgins Park in Santiago on Saturday, April 2 and Sunday, April 3, 2011. “There are a series of prerequisites when selecting a destination,” Farrell said in a statement. “Number one is space. It must be open and lovely; scalable up to 100,000 patrons. Second is the proximity to the city. We provide the entertainment. The city provides the culture, hotels, restaurants and clubs. Then, most important are the people. The people of Santiago have a passion for contemporary music and lead international lifestyles refect.”
Lollapalooza’s North American edition will return to Chicago this summer. Last year’s marquee names included: Soundgarden, Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire, MGMT, the Black Keys and Green Day, among others.
