Some 30 years after its first bow, the Lollapalooza music festival will head to India on January 28 and 29, 2023.
Taking place in Mumbai, it marks Lollapalooza’s first time on the Asian continent, following international editions in Berlin, Stockholm and Brazil, among other countries in Europe and South America, in addition to its home base in Chicago’s Grant Park.
The lineup for the Indian edition is yet to be revealed. The announcement touts “two full days of music on four stages as well as innovative culinary selections, art, fashion and more.”
The music of India is transcendental, drawing our spirits east,” said Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell. “Lollapalooza is an instrument of unity, peace and education that uses the universal languages of music and art to find common ground.”
“Lollapalooza has always been about exploring boundaries, musically and geographically,” added Charlie Walker, Partner, C3 Presents. “We are thrilled to introduce fans to a completely new festival experience that has been an important rite of passage for millions of music fans around the world for more than three decades.”
“BookMyShow is proud to bring Lollapalooza to India – making it the 8th country and 4th continent to do so. With the combination of star Indian talent and global artists coming together on one stage, we expect nothing but magic,” said Ashish Hemrajani, Founder & CEO, BookMyShow.
Lollapalooza India is produced by Perry Farrell, William Morris Endeavor Entertainment, C3 Presents and BookMyShow. It is the eighth country to host the festival, alongside the United States, Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Germany, France and Sweden.
