A prominent name in the world of music, Lollapalooza will host its inaugural edition in Mumbai on January 28-29, 2023. The entertainment and ticketing platform giant BookMyShow has teamed up with global producers, Perry Farrell, WME, and C3 Presents to spearhead the iconic music festival for its Indian edition.

America’s popular multi-genre music festival was first launched in 1991 by lead vocalist Perry Farrell of the rock band Jane’s Addiction. It started as a ‘farewell tour’ to the band by Farrell, but ended up one of the biggest musical extravaganzas with inclusivity and unique experiences in its heart.

The festival travels all around the world in seven locations across three continents for its annual editions in Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Germany, France, and Sweden, while its home is in Chicago. Over a span of 31 years, the festival has hosted the who’s who of the global music industry including Metallica, Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga, Tomorrow X Together, Kanye West, Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against the Machine, and many more!

Lollapalooza India has been announced just as the American edition kicks off in Grant Park. Farrell, making the official announcement, said, “The music of India is transcendental, it draws our spirits East. Lollapalooza is an instrument for unity, peace, and education utilising the universal languages of music and art to find common ground. You may be excited, and we are equally as excited!”
