Fun, sun and rock and roll. Brazil has it all now thanks to Lollapalooza.
The music festival, so well-known to music loving North Americans, celebrated its first year in Brazil and the line-up on April 7th and 8th boasted artists like Foo Fighters, Skrillex, MGMT, Cage the Elephant, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Foster the People and more.
Originally conceived as a farewell tour festival for Jane’s Addiction by Perry Farrell, Bill Graham, and others, alt-glam rockers, Jane’s Addiction, also played the festival in Brazil.
Farrell said in a statement that the people of Brazil were very vocal about who they wanted to see on the 2012 Lollapalooza Brazil line-up.
“The people of Sao Paulo have been very active–twittering me whom they want to see in the 2012 Lolla lineup,” Farrell explained. “Judging by all the requests, they are going to erupt. We really delivered for them. Now, I want them to show me how you party in Brasil!”
