Lollapalooza is considered the seminal, American summer music festival. It is the alternative template and artistic inspiration for popular venues like Bonnaroo and South By Southwest. Back in the 1991, Lollapalooza was the creative brainchild of Jane's Addiction front man, Perry Ferrell. Billed as a farewell tour for Jane's Addiction, Perry Ferrell enlisted some of his favorite popular and underground music acts and hit the road as a touring festival. Part traveling circus, part tattooed rock and roll extravaganza, Lollapalooza featured two music stages and had numerous tents and kiosks where social and political activists set up shop. It was avant-garde. Lollapalooza quickly became a Generation X style Woodstock, and Perry Ferrell was the master of ceremonies.
Lollapalooza toured from 1991 to 1997 and then took a hiatus until 2003. Flash forward to today and Lollapalooza is still an important platform for both struggling underground bands and popular alternative acts. It is still a showcase for activism and social and political awareness. In a rock and roll landscape that is dominated by vapid pop stars and ageing nostalgia acts, Lollapalooza still has a musical and cultural importance. If you want to see what your favorite alternative acts are up to in the new millennium, then you can buy cheap Lollapalooza tickets here.
Today, Lollapalooza is no longer a touring music festival but a destination concert. This makes the tickets harder to acquire. Tickets to Lollapalooza are bound to sell-out, so if you want to party with Alternative Nation, you need to purchase tickets to Lollapalooza soon. Whether you are an aging Generation Xer looking to recapture the summer of your angst-ridden youth, or a fan who has just discovered the wonder and beauty of alternative music, Lollapalooza is the quintessential summer concert and one that should not be missed.
