Lollapalooza Music Festival first originated in Chicago, Illinois, and then became global, hitting countries like Chile, Brazil, and now: Stolkholm, Sweden.
Stockholm will now be the sixth international city that will host the festival, among Santiago, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, Berlin, and Paris. It will take place in Sweden for the first time from June 28 – 29, 2019. Produced by Perry Farrell, WME, C3 Presents, and Live Nation Sweden, the festival will feature four stages, culinary selections, art, and more.
The festival will commence in Gärdet, a beautiful park in the middle of the city. Thomas Johansson, Live Nation Chariman of International Music, explained in a press release that this historic park and Lollapalooza are a “perfect match.”
“For decades we have been wanting to do a really big festival in Stockholm and we are very honored and excited to do this together with Charles Attal and his team at C3 Presents,” Johansson said. “Welcome to Stockholm, Lollapalooza!”
Attal, of C3 Presents, said that the company is fortunate to be able to partner with Johansson and Anna Sjolund as well as their team, since they are highly respected around the world, claiming they are “some of the best promoters in the business.”
“It takes years of research and planning to determine the right cities to host Lollapalooza, and we never take the decision lightly,” Attal said. “With its incredible culture, vibrant music seen and beautiful green spaces, Stockholm proved to be an ideal city to add to our growing international family.”
The 2019 lineup and ticket information for the Stockholm festival will be released later this year.
Chicago’s installment of the festival will kick-off on August 2 and run through August 5 at Grant Park. Headlining artists include The Weeknd, Bruno Mars, Jack White, and Arctic Monkeys. Over 170 artists are slated to perform during the four-day festival, along with dance and comedy acts.
Lollapalooza will head to Paris, France on July 21-22, showcasing headlining acts Depeche Mode, Travis Scott, Kasabian, Diplo, Gorillaz, and The Killers. The festival in Berlin, Germany will take place from September 8-9 and feature The Weeknd, Kraftwerk 3D, Imagine Dragons, and The National.
