Lollapalooza Heading to Israel in 2013
The world famous music festival will take place in Tel Aviv next year.
The famed Lollapalooza festival has announced Lollapalooza Israel for 2013. The event is set to take place in Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park from August 20-22 in 2013, making it the third international location for the festival, following Chile and Brazil.
Lollapalooza Israel with be the country’s first large-scale international music festival to date.
“Israel is an incredibly sophisticated music market,” says Marc Geiger of WME Entertainment, a partner of Lollapalooza, LLC. “Consumers have a voracious appetite for entertainment, yet there has never been a major music festival. To me, this combination screams Lollapalooza.”
“NMC United and Plug Productions Generator are thrilled to join the international family of Lollapalooza,” states Ilan Elkayam, promoter at Plug Productions Generator. “Hosting the festival in Tel Aviv is both an honor and a privilege for us and we are super excited to bring the global and wonderful experience that Lollapalooza is to the people and the city.”
“Lollapalooza began as music’s premier traveling festival,” says Farrell. “As a musician, I really missed the days when we were on the move. In the last few years we’ve widened our scope, presenting Lolla to the ‘festival generation’ around the world. Next stop- Tel Aviv.”
