Lineups by yearEdit


In mid-November 2010, the American musician Perry Farrell announced that the twentieth version of Lollapalooza festival would be held for the first time outside the United States; The site chosen was the Parque O'Higgins in Santiago, Chile, on 2 and 3 April 2011. The event gathered approximately 100,000 people between the O'Higgins Park Ellipse, the Movistar Arena and the Theater Dome.

The organization had many problems, one of them being the cancellation of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs show due to health problems of one of its band members. Problems escalated when Lotus announced that tickets would not be refunded under any circumstances. Added to this, the organizers did not program another band to replace the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but as time passed they were able to present other artists.

This new version of the Festival showed various improvements, such as security, a wider selection of food posts, better information regarding the festival itself and a better atmosphere.

The eighth version of Lollapalooza Chile was held on 16–18 March 2018. It was the first time that the festival was realized in three days. Also, Lollapalooza made an expansion of the park giving to the fans new zones for walk. This version received more than 80,000 attendees per day. This edition was one of the most criticized due to the logistical problems that the festival had due to the electric storms that affected Buenos Aires, Argentina (most of the bands were playing at Lollapalooza Argentina in the same weekend), that affected the arrival of several artists on Saturday and Sunday, even having to cancel some shows and move others. Days before the festival begins, it was announced that Tyler the Creator would not be able to play at the festival, in his replacement Aurora was confirmed.
