Pitchfork tells us of an Israel Lollapalooza next year, Aug 20-22, 2013.
UPDATE: Lollapalooza Israel has been postponed indefinitely
Before you say anything, reread that last sentence. Lollapalooza. Israel. August. 2013. Middle East. Music. Tunes.
You’re probably wondering why Lollapalooza would go to Israel, the country where indie bands regularly refuse to play. Because of politics and punishing liberal Israelis who like music. There’s one reason Lollapalooza is the festival’s organizer Perry Farrell. You may know him as front man for 90s alt rock Jane’s Addiction. Or you may know him by his birth name, Peretz Bernstein.
That’s right. Lollapalooza is finally traveling to the Home Land.
