Next year, India will officially become the eighth country to host a Lollapalooza festival.
The world's second most populous nation is the newest home of one of the United States' most iconic music festivals this winter. The brand behind the long-running Chicago fest has announced Lollapalooza India, a brand new outing for South Asian fans of electronic music, rock & roll, hip-hop and beyond.
Organizers took to Twitter to share a trailer for the upcoming festival in Mumbai.
The flagship Lollapalooza event has taken place at Chicago's Grant Park each year since 2005, save for 2020, when it went virtual due to the impact of the pandemic. Since then, the festival has hosted international outings in Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Germany, Sweden, France, Israel and now India.
