Perry’s initiative called the Lollapalooza is an iconic 4-day annual summer music festival that features performers across different genres such as hip-hop, techno and alternative rock. Originally started as a farewell tour for Jane’s Addiction in 1991 the festival was threatened with permanent closure a few times in 1998 and then again in 2003-2004. This is when Farrell decided to go for a re-alignment and make it a destination event in Chicago, his favourite city becoming the chosen spot. However, he wanted to keep the spirit of the festival alive as the foundation was based on it being global. The expansion started in 2011 and today the event is held in 7 locations around the world including Grant Park between the Chicago skyline and the shores of lake Michigan. It is crystal clear that the fiesta is Farrell’s baby and the name kept signifies its extraordinary and impressive nature.
