Once the founders of the festival conceived to make it a two-day event, but could not manage to gather audience and sell tickets. Now Lollapalooza lasts three days, usually it occurs at the first weekend of August.
The American Lollapalooza festival was invented in 1991 by a vocalist of Jane’s Addiction band – Perry Farrell. It was a farewell tour of musicians, and therefore the festival was initially nomadic. Nevertheless Lollapalooza became popular and was held until 1997, and then, after the break, was revived again in 2003 and settled in one place.
