It all started back in 1991 when Perry Farrell, lead singer of fabled alternative rockers Jane's Addiction started planning a farewell show for the group.His idea morphed into a larger-than-life musical roadshow that would bring music, culture, and community to fans all over the continent. Before the Internet, there wasn't a great way to get music from up-and-coming bands to the fans.
Farrell's festival did it with flair, pulling together diverse acts like Nine Inch Nails and Ice-T for a culture-spanning celebration the world had never seen.
As the festival has grown up, it's also grown out -- now spanning over 115 acres,multiple stages, and a ever-more diverse array of 130+ artists from hip-hop, electronica, reggae, indie, rock, modern roots, and many more. There's always been a passion for rocking responsibly, and Lolla these days is no different.
