Lollapalooza adds Colombia to its international roster in 2016!

Lollapalooza is set to go off in Chicago this weekend for another year, while the massive festival will see its first European run in Germany happen this September. Continuing to expand as one of the biggest festival brands in the world, Lollapalooza has now announced that next year they will be hosting their first event in Colombia.

Bogota based promoters T310 | Absent Papa have teamed up with Lollapalooza's founder Perry Farrell, WME and C3 to make Lolla Colombia happen, scheduled to take place at Parque Simón Bolivar Park in 2016, a date still to be confirmed.

Of the expansion of Lollapalooza to Colombia, founder Farrell has said, "We have had the ambition to bring Lollapalooza to Colombia for some time now, and have found partners who are true professionals and share our passion for the music. Fans in Colombia have a true love of alternative music and we are excited for the rest of the world to find out what we already know about this wonderful country."

Lollapalooza, as of 2015, has festival dates established in not only the US (Chicago) and Germany (Berlin) as mentioned, but also in Chile, Argentina and Brazil. The festival celebrates 11 years in Chicago this weekend, headlined by the likes of Paul McCartney, Metallica and Florence + The Machine. The AU will be on site at Grant Park, Chicago this year once again, bringing you all the action!
