Coming in 2013: Lollapalooza Israel

SHARE Coming in 2013: Lollapalooza Israel

Shortly after Grant Park reopened to music fans after a temporary, weather-related evacuation, Lollapalooza made an off-topic announcement: the festival is expanding again overseas next year, this time to Tel Aviv, Israel.

Lollapalooza Israel is set for Aug. 20-22, 2013, in Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park.

It’s the latest in international expansions by Lollapalooza, produced by the Texas-based C3 Presents. Lollapalooza Chile launched in 2011, and Lollapalooza Brazil began early this year.

“As a musician, I really missed the days when we were on the move,” festival founder Perry Farrell said in a statement. “In the last few years we’ve widened our scope, presenting Lolla to the ‘festival generation’ around the world. Next stop: Tel Aviv.”
