the festival continues to expand internationally with a just-announced Stockholm event.

You can add Sweden to the list of countries hosting international Lollapaloozas.  The music fest will make its debut in the Scandinavian country in June 2019.

It’s probably a wee bit early to discuss lineups, but Lollapalooza Stockholm will bring two days of music and arts to the city’s downtown park known as Gärdet, June 28-29.  Along with four stages of music, Lollapalooza will bring its flair for art installations, culinary delights and sideshow entertainment.

The extravaganza will be produced by Perry Farrell, WME, C3 Presents and Live Nation Sweden with subsidiary Luger, which puts on Swedish festivals such as Way Out West and Åre Sessions.

“The historic Gärdet and the iconic festival Lollapalooza are the perfect match. For decades we have been wanting to do a really big festival in Stockholm and we are very honored and excited to do this together with Charles Attal and his team at C3 Presents,” said Thomas Johansson, Chairman International Music, Live Nation. “Welcome to Stockholm, Lollapalooza!”

“It takes years of research and planning to determine the right cities to host Lollapalooza, and we never take the decision lightly. With its incredible culture, vibrant music seen and beautiful green spaces, Stockholm proved to be an ideal city to add to our growing international family. We are fortunate and honored to partner with Anna Sjolund, Thomas Johansson and their team, who are highly respected around the world as some of the best promoters in the business,” said Charles Attal, Partner, C3 Presents.
