Lollapalooza in Chicago - Best Season

Founded in 1991 by Perry Farrell, Jane's Addiction singer, as a farewell tour for his band, but Lollapalooza became so successful that it ran annually. In 2010 it made debut outside the United States, in Santiago. A year later the Brazilian version in São Paulo has followed. In the next two years it conquered Buenos Aires and Berlin.

The festival is attended by 160.000 people during two or three days. It is traditionally held at Grant Park.
