LOLLAPALOOZA EXPANDING TO CHILE

Soundgarden performing at Lollapalooza 1992

I think this story is relevant since in the 90’s Lollapalooza was the definite festival of the Grunge/Alternative era with acts like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice In Chains, Smashing Pumpkins, Stone Temple Pilots, and Hole playing the festival.  In recent years Pearl Jam and Soundgarden headlined Lollapalooza.

Lollapalooza began in 1991 as a summer package tour, solidifying the idea of alternative rock as a commercial format. In 2005, it was reborn as a weekend event in Chicago. And next year Lollapalooza will begin its next phase, with a branch of the festival opening in Santiago, Chile.

Lollapalooza Chile will take place on April 2 and 3 at O’Higgins Park in Santiago, and will be produced by Perry Farrell of Jane’s Addiction, who founded Lollapalooza, along with Lotus Producciones, a Chilean promoter, with the William Morris Endeavor agency and C3 Presents, the promoter behind Lollapalooza’s reinvention in Chicago.

STILL WORKING ON REBUILDING GRUNGEREPORT.NET

Short update to those of you just coming back on the site after it’s been down for a few days.  We have successfully moved to a new non shitty server/host.  I have just about all of the sections back up, outside of photos in the Bands section and the Podcasts section.  I also installed the theme and put the banner up.

I still need to figure out configuring the Headlines and Features so I can post new stories, that should be figured out in the next few hours then I’ll post some new stories.
