The iconic global music festival Lollapalooza is all set to make its India debut in January 2023. The two-day multi-genre music extravaganza will be held in Mumbai on January 28 and 29, BookMyShow said in a statement.
“BookMyShow is proud to bring Lollapalooza to India making it the eighth country and the fourth continent to do so. With a mix of some stellar Indian talent and global artists coming together on the same stage, we expect nothing short of magic,” Ashish Hemrajani, Founder and CEO of BookMyShow, said as quoted by news agency PTI.
“After travelling through 7 countries and 3 continents, the moment has arrived for India. 4 stages, 40 acts, 2 days, all here in Mumbai. See you on Jan 28-29,” a post on BookMyShow’s official Instagram handle reads.
The artist line-up for the event has not been revealed yet. It will be announced later this year. One can expect several noted names.
Perry Farrell, founder of Lollapalooza, said they are excited about bringing Lollapalooza to India.
“The music of India is transcendental, it draws our spirits East. Lollapalooza is an instrument for unity, peace, and education utilising the universal languages of music and art to find common ground. You may be excited, and we are equally as excited,” Farrell said.
The first edition of Lollapalooza India will be open for a gathering of 60,000 people each day and will have more than 20 hours of live music by eminent global and local artists.
Registrations for the event have begun and will be live until July 31. The tickets for the musical extravaganza for pre-registered users will go live on August 1.
