Created by Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell, Lollapalooza is set in the heart of Chicago’s Grant Park. Over the years, the festival has brought in some of the biggest names in music, including Radiohead, A Tribe Called Quest, Smashing Pumpkins, Florence and the Machine and many, many more. The festival is a nonstop dance party where everyone and anyone can find their favorite genre.
Between 1991–1997 the festival ran annually and toured around the U.S. and Canada. Due to low ticket sales, the festival was canceled. In 2005, Lolla was revived and now boasts over 160,000 attendees each year. The festival also has annual international destinations including Berlin, Santiago, Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires.
To celebrate Lolla’s 25th anniversary, we’ve rounded up 36 photos of artists performing at the festival over the years. Scroll below to see how the music festival has transformed from 1991 to 2016.
