After expanding to Chile and Brasil, Lollapalooza has announced that the increasingly global festival will now also take place in Tel Aviv, Israel in 2013. The inaugural festival will begin on August 20th to the 22nd promising 50 artists to perform throughout the three days. Out of deference to the area’s Orthodox Jews, who abstain from using technology on Fridays, the festival will be held from Tuesday to Thursday.
In an interview with CNN, festival founder, Perry Farrell mentioned that Tel Aviv may not be the only Israeli city to host to a Lollapalooza festival. “We got a call from Jerusalem, the Holy City, and they want Lollapalooza to be there, too,” he said. “But it’s going to start in Tel Aviv, and we’re going to do something in Jerusalem. The mayor’s like, ‘We want to bring young people, we want to change the perception of Jerusalem.’ So we’re even talking with them about it.”
Perry also expressed that Lollapalooza would continue to take over the globe. Although he wouldn’t announce where the next locations will be he did say, “make no mistake. I want to have a beautiful portfolio of Lollapaloozas to give to my children.” He certainly is on the right path.
