Lollapalooza Announces 2015 Dates In South America, Jack White Rumored To Headline
Alternative rock megafestival Lollapalooza has announced that it will be returning to South America for three consecutive weekends in March 2015. Lollapalooza Chile will take place in Santiago on March 14 and 15, Lollapalooza Argentina will take place in Buenos Aires on March 21 and 22, and Lollapalooza Brazil will take place in Sao Paolo on March 28 and 29.
Brazil's Destak reports that some of the rumored headliners for Lollapalooza Brazil include Jack White, Robert Plant, Foster The People, Kasabian, and Bastille. Consequence of Sound points out that in the past, all three South American Lollapalooza festivals have featured similar line-ups. The official line-ups for all three festivals are expected to be announced sometime in November.
Tickets for all three festivals are currently available through Lollapalooza's website.
Lollapalooza was founded in 1991 by Jane's Addiction singer Perry Farrell and is credited with popularizing alternative music. It was a touring festival during its original '90s incarnation, which lasted until 1997, and was rebooted in 2003. In 2005, Lollapalooza became a weekend festival in Chicago's Grant Park. The festival made its overseas debut in Chile in 2011, expanding to Brazil in 2012 and later Argentina in 2014.
Some headliners at Lollapalooza Chile and Argentina this past year included Red Hot Chili Peppers, Soundgarden, Arcade Fire, Nine Inch Nails, Pixies, Vampire Weekend, Phoenix, Imagine Dragons, New Order, Kid Cudi, Ellie Goulding, Julian Casablancas, and Lorde, along with plenty of South American artists. Muse replaced Red Hot Chili Peppers as headliners for 2014's Lollapalooza Brazil.
