Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell will also be making a performance on his signature stage under the moniker of PerryEtty vs. Chris Cox. "Muscular beats," Farrell says, "That's the theme. Our new tent houses fifteen thousand people at once."
About the 20th anniversary, Farrell is both nostalgic and enthusiastic. "As excited as I am to watch this year's legends perform at Lolla, I am also feeling the enthusiasm for the younger groups who are just now breaking. I take great delight in knowing that for the past 20 years we've given so many new artists a prestigious stage and a massive audience to play in front of."
