Lollapalooza is Cranking it Up a Notch by Adding Lollapalooza India as the Chicago Festival Kicks Off

It's Lollapalooza week in Chicago, and the brand is celebrating with the announcement of a new member of the family: Lollapalooza India.

Coming in 2023, this marks the first time the world-phenom festival will be held on Asian shores.

Coming to Mumbai

Coming to Mumbai in January is one of the world's most beloved festivals.

From January 28-29, 2023, Lollapalooza India will bring 2 full days of music across 4 stages to India's biggest city.

The music of India is transcendental, it draws our spirits East. Lollapalooza is an instrument for unity, peace, and education utilizing the universal languages of music and art to find common ground.

Lollapalooza India joins the family's international presence alongside United States, Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Germany, France and Sweden.

Attendees will be able to enjoy not just some of the world's best music, but also innovative culinary experiences, art, fashion and more.

Lollapalooza has always been about exploring boundaries, musically and geographically. We are excited to introduce 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.

A lineup is expected to be released in the coming months.

Chicago Weekend in High Gear

Meanwhile in the United States, Lollapalooza Chicago is in full swing on day 2 of the festival.

Metallica took the stage to wow audiences with a stellar performance on Thursday, along with Lil Baby, Tove Lo and more.

Friday's lineup includes Machine Gun Kelly, Don Tolliver, Jordy, Mahalia, Finn plus many others – with a last-minute addition of Green Day.

Saturday headliners include Griff, Kygo, Kaskade, Dashboard Confessional, Cochise, J Cole, Big Sean plus more.

Sunday's performances include Charli XCX, The Kid Laroi, Atliens and Green Day plus more.

First formed in 1991 by Perry Ferrell as a touring festival, Lollapalooza has quickly become one of the world's preeminent music events.

The Lollapalooza team explains in a statement, " 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 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."

With an international presence and 30 years under their belt, the Lollapalooza team has proven what it takes to turn a music festival into the kind of experience that takes hold of your soul and feeds the music lover in you.

This year, performances are also streaming on Hulu.
