One of music’s largest and rowdiest music festivals is continuing it’s international expansion. Lollapalooza, which takes place in Chicago every year, will also be taking place next year in Sao Paulo, Brazil (March 29-31), Santiago, Chile (April 6-7), and, now, Tel Aviv, Israel (August 20-22). The festival will take place at Yarkon Park, Israel’s largest concert venue.
Over the years, Yarkon Park has hosted a variety of spectacular acts, ranging from Paul McCartney to Michael Jackson. Israel itself is known for its mass music market, despite the fact that Israel has never hosted a major music festival. The festival is purposely being held during the middle of the week, to avoid Friday, the Jewish Sabbath, when observers abstain from driving, modern technology, and listening to music.
There has been no word yet of the line up, nor of where Lollapalooza is headed next. But this will certainly not be the last international expansion -- festival founder Perry Farrell has stated that he wants a beautiful "portfolio" of Lollapaloozas to give to his children.
