Lollapalooza history:

In its first year Lollapalooza was designed as a farewell tour for Jane’s Addiction. In 1991 it included a relatively small lineup with Living ColourNine Inch Nails, and rapper Ice-T. Its success has been overwhelming and hence it was continued as an annual touring festival - Lollapalooza was the first of its kind. It tripled in size, going from 9 bands to 28 in 1992. Soon after, it became the concert event of the year, and alternative culture began taking over  with the Seattle bands (e.g. Nirvana, Pearl Jam). It was paused for several years in 1997 and after, but since its reinstatement in 2003 it has been on an upswing again, appearing every year in Chicago. Again as a touring festival it was expanded to include multi-day festivals in a total of 4x other countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Germany. In 2014, 133 bands were playing at Lollapalooza.
