New festival in France: Lollapalooza Paris 2017! #festileaks

thursday, october 13th, 2016 / Ruud

The renowded Download Festival already found her way to Paris, but also Lollapalooza is ready to alight in the french capital! Angelo Gopee, director of the French Live Nation, finally confirmed the long existing rumor in an interview with the Télérama last week. Bienvenue Lollapalooza Paris!

The rumors about the arrival of Lollapalooza Paris were already flying around for quite some time. Festival oracle Zégut even named the festival in combination with headliners Radiohead and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Well, the arrival of the festival is already confirmed, so we will quickly learn if the predictions about the headliners will become true as well.

The first edition of Lollapalooza Paris will take place on 22 and 23 July in L’Hippodrome de Longchamp. This is the same location where Download Festival is held (9 and 11 June 2017). So according to Gopee, Lollapalooza Paris will follow six weeks later. Acts and more information about the festival will follow soon.

Poto: Lollapalooza Berlin

Before Lollapalooza landed in Chicago, it was an itinerant festival. After successes in North America, the festival expanded to South America where it took place among Brazil and Argentina. In 2015, Berlin had the honor to welcome the first European edition and now, in 2017, it is up to Paris and Berlin both. Lollapalooza Paris is Europe’s second release under the banner of the great American festival.
