Inaugural Lollapalooza Colombia Launching in Fall 2016

LollapaloozaLollapalooza is adding a fourth festival in South America, this time in Bogota, Colombia. The inaugural Lollapalooza Colombia will be held in the fall of 2016.

"We have had the ambition to bring Lollapalooza to Colombia for some time now, and have found partners who are true professionals and share our passion for the music," says Lolla founder and Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell in a statement. "Fans in Colombia have a true love of alternative music and we are excited for the rest of the world to find out what we already know about this wonderful country."

Farrell created Lollapalooza in 1991 as a touring festival before taking up permanent residence in Chicago's Grant Park in 2005. The festival has since expanded into Chile, Brazil, Argentina and Germany. The inaugural Lollapalooza Berlin, headlined by Muse, will be held this September.

Metallica and Florence + the Machine will headline this year's flagship Lollapalooza in Chicago, which takes place this weekend, July 31 to August 2.
