LOLLAPALOOZA IS COMING TO STOCKHOLM 2019!
During the weekend of June 28th -29th the international music festival Lollapalooza is set to make it’s Swedish debut. Following Berlin and Paris, Stockholm is the third European city to host the iconic festival, operated on three different continents, and attracting over one million fans all over the world annually. Lollapalooza Stockholm will take place at the beautiful park Gärdet in the very heart of Stockholm.
Stockholm will be a part of the exclusive group of cosmopolitan cities to host the global music festival Lollapalooza. Over two days in June 2019 the festival will take over Gärdet with four stages featuring performances from some of the world’s biggest superstars and the most exciting new names across a wide array of genres; from rock to hip hop to electronic dance music and more.
The Lollapalooza lineups across the globe have included names such as The Weeknd, Lana Del Rey, Pearl Jam, Lorde, Bruno Mars, Daft Punk, Eminem and Lady Gaga. In addition to a jam-packed music program the festival site will also feature an innovative selection of food and beverages, art and a lot more.
Lollapalooza was founded as a touring festival in 1991, made its home in Chicago in 2005 and has grown and developed into an international institution with expansions in São Paulo, Buenos Aires and Santiago in South America, and Berlin and Paris in Europe. Stockholm is the latest addition to the expanding Lollapalooza global family.

Lollapalooza Stockholm is produced by Perry Farrell, WME, C3 Presents and Live Nation Sweden with their subsidiary company Luger - the award winning organization behind Swedish festivals such as Way Out West and Åre Sessions.
Launched by founder Perry Farrell in 1991 as a touring festival, Lollapalooza remains an innovator in festival culture 25 years later. Lollapalooza was ground breaking from the start, bringing artists from a wide range of musical genres together on one bill. It’s also the first American festival to expand into several festival days, the first using more than one stage, the first to blend art and activism, the first to offset its carbon emissions, the first to put electronic dance music on the main stage, the first to create family friendly programming, the first to make its home in an urban city center and the first to expand globally.
Lollapalooza has grown into an annual world-class festival in Chicago, United States, as well as culturally rich countries including Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Germany, and France. Lollapalooza is one of the premier music festival destinations both for music fans in the US and abroad. In celebration of the festival’s 25th Anniversary, Lollapalooza Chicago expanded to four days in 2016, and continues to host 100,000 fans a day, featuring over 180 artists on 8 stages annually.
“The historic Gärdet and the iconic festival Lollapalooza is the perfect match. For decades we have been wanting to do a really big festival in Stockholm and we are very honoured and excited to do this together with Charles Attal and his team at C3 Presents. Welcome to Stockholm, Lollapalooza!”
– Thomas Johansson, Chairman International Music, Live Nation
"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 scene 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, Thomas and their team, who are highly respected around the world as some of the best promoters in the business,”
– Charles Attal, Partner, C3 Presents.
“The fact that we’re now getting a global music event of this size fits well into our long term efforts to strengthen the city’s international brand. Stockholm is a city that a lot of people want to visit and experience.”
– Karin Wanngård, (S), the Commissioner of Finance and Mayor of Stockholm
