Lollapalooza makes its Brazilian debut at Sao Paulo’s Jockey Club April 7-8. Placed smack dab in the heart of South America’s largest city, the location promises easy access via train station and roadways and expands the Lollapalooza brand to two countries outside the U.S.
“The Brazilians have a very rich history of celebration,” Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell said in a statement. “If we (Lolla) can rub together with them, there’s no telling what heights that party will reach.”
In addition to announcing Lollapalooza Brazil, organizers also affirmed that the festival will play a second year in Chile, March 31-April 1 at Santiago’s O’Higgins Park.
As with this year’s Lollapalooza Chile, promotion company C3 Presents and talent agency WME are partnering with local promotion companies for next year’s South American festivals, working with Lotus Producciones in Santiago and GEO Eventos in Sao Paulo.
To no one’s surprise, Lollapalooza announced it will return to Chicago’s Grant Park next year, designating Aug. 3-5 for the Windy City.
