Lollapalooza was originally launched by Jane’s Addiction singer Perry Farrell back in 1991, and was first held that same year in its home-venue of Grant Park. Since its inception, the festival has gone on to become an annual tradition in Chicago’s live music scene, and Lollapalooza has always managed to provide a well-rounded representation of all styles and sounds on the genre spectrum. Each year, well over 160,000 individuals pass through Grant Park’s entry during summer to attend the event. Lollapalooza went international in 2010, and has since hit venues in Chile, Brazil, Europe and elsewhere.
