Without music, life would be a mistake.
These are the words of one of the greatest thinkers of the contemporary world: Friedrich Nietzsche.
Now, you may not know Nietzsche or his works. But you don’t need to know him to understand music, do you? In reality, these words reflect what every music lover feels about music. And we can’t agree more with Nietzsche.
Music is a treat to the eager ears, freedom to the fettered mind, hope for the wishful heart, and a blessing for the soul. In fact, music is one of the best things that has ever happened to humanity!
Okay, okay. But why are we ranting so much about music today? Well, there’s a reason. A BIG one: Lollapalooza.
When we learned that the greatest live music festival – Lollapalooza – is gearing up for its first-ever Asian edition in India, we couldn’t keep our feet on the ground. And as we tried to control our excitement, months passed by, and the festival was finally around the corner!
If you have just heard about Lollapalooza India but don’t know what it’s about, you are in the perfect place. Stick with us for a while, and we’ll give you ten reasons to fall in love with this amazing festival. And we are sure that by the end, you’ll know why you must attend Lollapalooza India this month!
Here we go!
The greatest musical party of the year!
Look, there are several types of musical events. They are like musical parties because they are so much fun!
First, there are standalone concerts– live performances by leading artists or bands where we hear their songs live! Then, there are musical tours by an artist or band, where they travel to different places and organize several concerts.
But then come the grandest of all musical parties – music festivals like Lollapalooza. These festivals run for multiple days, usually in the same place. And we get to experience blockbuster performances from the greatest artists and bands. And Lollapalooza is among the greatest music festivals in the world!
So, when you attend Lollapalooza India this January 28th-29th, you’ll experience the greatest musical party of the year!
Lollapalooza has never happened in Asia before.
Don’t get us wrong, we know that Lollapalooza began in 1991 in the US; thanks to singer Perry Farrell who made it possible.
Since then, the festival has expanded to six other countries across Europe and South America. It is a recurring event in these countries: the US (the home), Brazil, Chile, Sweden, Germany, France, and Argentina.
But here’s the thing:
Lollapalooza has never been organized anywhere in Asia, Africa, or Australia. So, with the 2023 India edition, Lollapalooza will make its Asia debut. Therefore, it will be unlike any other Lollapalooza festival you might have already witnessed! And this makes Lollapalooza India special.
Look who’s coming!
With over three decades of legacy, Lollapalooza has made its name among fans across the globe. And there are many reasons behind the festival’s immense popularity. But the greatest reason has always been the artists that take the stage. And this year is no exception.
Can you imagine who’s coming to Lollapalooza India? Imagine Dragons! Yes, the same band that gave us loop-worthy pieces like Believer, Radioactive, and Enemy.
But it doesn’t end here. The line-up of Lollapalooza India also includes other big names like The Strokes, Greta van Fleet, Kasablanca, Alec Benjamin, Divine, Prateek Kuhad, and Sandunes, among others. To be precise, there are going to be 40 acts over two days, so you get the best performances back-to-back.
What’s your genre?
Do you like pop and rock? Or are you an EDM buff? Or do you prefer Indie music more than anything else?
Whatever your preferred genre, Lollapalooza has got you covered. In a musical festival as grand as the one we are talking about, genres blend beautifully. Therefore, no matter what kind of music you are a fan of, you can rest assured that you will listen to what you love.
Lollapalooza is happening in the City of Dreams!
The reason to attend Lollapalooza India is not just the festival itself. The place that’s hosting Lollapalooza India deserves a visit due to its sheer magnificence. Yes, we are talking about the city of dreams, the pop-cultural capital of India, and home to Bollywood – Mumbai.
