Festival visionary Perry Farrell, in conjunction with Chile's Lotus Producciones, WME and C3 Presents — the promotional partners behind the North American Lollapalooza — have announced the lineup for the inaugural Lollapalooza Chile in South America. Headliners THE KILLERS, JANE´S ADDICTION and KANYE WEST plus the YEAH YEAH YEAHS are among the 50-plus acts performing on five stages at the two-day festival on Saturday, April 2 and Sunday, April 3 in O'Higgins Park, Santiago.
For close to 20 years as the premier alternative music festival, Lollapalooza is expanding with this unique and unforgettable event. With an eclectic lineup of top talent from around the world including an array of artists from Chile, Lollapalooza Chile will feature two outdoor main stages, an electronic arena stage and a small alternative stage, plus — like Lollapalooza in North America — an all-ages Kidzapalooza stage for family fun. Similar to its Chicago home Grant Park, O'Higgins Park is a gorgeous scenic locale in the middle of a bustling urban hub. Farrell also emphasizes that Lollapalooza will partake in a "cultural exchange," by featuring Chilean artists at this summer's North American Lollapalooza in Chicago.
Assembling this distinguished line-up of acts for the debut of Lollapalooza Chile was no easy feat. Says Farrell, who will perform with both JANE'S ADDICTION and his electronic hybrid PERRYETTY, "The job we did to gather these artists for 2011 was remarkable. Imagine gathering 60 artists while the contract ink is still wet. We put it together at a record pace as we had four months. We did not want to come to Chile with a lineup that was anything other than world-class, and my partners Marc Geiger of WME and Charles Attal of C3 have been absolutely integral to Lollapalooza Chile launching in 2011. Our selections are very animated, with much diversity. There is Chilean talent in the mix. Now that the lineup is announced here, we are going back to Chile to work on the other aspects of the festival." Adds Farrell: "Our ambition is to plant a very strong seed in Chile. One that will grow over the years, and provide Santiago with an event for the ages."
Available now for the festival are general two-day passes for $110 presale, $136 then $152; Lolla Lounge two-day VIP passes for $320 presale then $380; And beginning February 11, general admission single day tickets for $72 presale then $84 and VIP passes for $240.
