Last night, I had a dream with Lollapalooza….it’s official. I have been reading YA too long! Okay, and sometimes I may want to escape back to the days where responsibility meant showing up on time for your friend’s birthday party, or starting the weekend right….on Thursday, or making sure you got tickets for Lollapalooza before it sold out. Awe…those were the days!
Lollapalooza was created by Perry Farrell of Jane’s Addiction in 1991 and was an unexpected success.
It temporarily died in 1997, and in 2003 it was revived again.
Here’s the line up for 1994 (check out the blurb in Nirvana), and the line up for 2010. Thank you Wikipedia!
