Lollapalooza Chile, (Lolla Chile) 2021
November 26 - November 28
How about a alternative rock, punk, heavy metal and hip-hop concert at the foot of South America? Lollapalooza Chile would be just what you are looking for.
The following relates to the cancelled 2020 Lollapalooza Chile. We will update it when the lineup for 2021 is confirmed.
Headliners for this year’s Lollapalooza Chile (Lolla Chile) include Guns n’ Roses, Travis Scott, The Strokes, Lana Del Rey, Gwen Stefani, Vampire Weekend and Rita Ora, as well as many Chilean headlining local bands.
The festival was due to be held in March but has been moved to November due to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. According to the website Guns n’ Roses, Travis Scott and The Strokes are still confirmed, but other acts have yet to be re-confirmed. Tickets bought for the original Lollapalooza Chile festival will be valid for the November dates.
The organisers expect more than 200,000 people will visit O’Higgins Park to be part of the festival. In addition to music, there will be displays of visual art, entertainment laid on for kids, disabled access and green initiatives to make the festival more sustainable.
The History of the Lollapalooza Festival
Coined from a word used in a Three Stooges film, meaning “extraordinarily impressive”, Lollapalooza was started in 1991 by Perry Farrell leader of Jane’s Addiction as a multicity venue for the band’s farewell tour. Initially the concept struggled, and it was only in 2005 when Chicago was chosen as a venue that the festival took off.
In April 2011, Santiago hosted Lolla Chile, the first Lollapalooza Festival outside of the USA, and it has played a role in developing the local music scene. The original concert had about 100,000 visitors, with attendance growing steadily since then.
Lollapalooza concerts are now held in seven countries, and this year celebrates its tenth anniversary in Chile.
