Foo Fighters To Headline Lollapalooza Chile And Brazil Lineups
November 21, 2011 at 10:37 AM (PT)
Born 20 years ago out of punk rock will and unbridled passion, LOLLAPALOOZA -- founded by JANE'S ADDICTION lead singer PERRY FARRELL -- has rocked through the parks, amphitheaters and fairgrounds of NORTH AMERICA before becoming an acclaimed destination festival in CHICAGO every SUMMER. Next year, the festival will once again touch down in SOUTH AMERICA with the second edition of LOLLAPALOOZA CHILE in O’HIGGINS PARK in SANTIAGO, MARCH 31st-APRIL 1st, 2012, and will venture across the continent for the first-ever LOLLAPALOOZA BRAZIL at the JOCKEY CLUB in SÃO PAULO, APRIL 7th-8th, 2012.
The two festivals will share some -- but not all acts -- on their bills. LOLLAPALOOZA CHILE and LOLLAPALOOZA BRAZIL will both welcome the FOO FIGHTERS, ARCTIC MONKEYS, SKRILLEX, CALVIN HARRIS, MGMT, TV ON THE RADIO, BASSNECTAR, BAND OF HORSES, THIEVERY CORPORATION, PEACHES, CAGE THE ELEPHANT, JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS, FRIENDLY FIRES, FOSTER THE PEOPLE, and TINIE TEMPAH.
Fresh from triumphing over the elements with this year’s LOLLAPALOOZA U.S. headline set of a lifetime, FOO FIGHTERS are sure to turn equally dynamic main stage closing sets in both BRAZIL and CHILE -- marking the FOOS’ first trip ever in CHILE as well as their first BRAZILIAN appearance in over a decade.
