Berlin is getting ready for its music highlight of 2015. The world-renowned Lollapalooza music festival has chosen the German capital to become its European stronghold after celebrated editions in Brazil, Argentina and Chile. Staying true to its genre-spanning philosophy, the brand-new Lollapalooza destination will boast a line-up at the historic Tempelhof Airport that won’t leave you begging for more.
Main stage whoppers so far include Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, The Libertines, Sam Smith, Seeed, Belle & Sebastian, Fatboy Slim, and Bastille. Another headliner will be announced in June.
Focusing on a diverse mix of international acts and legendary performers straight from the nation’s capital, local heroes like Seeed, Beatsteaks and the whiz-kids Mighty Oaks have been confirmed to make an appearance.
Continuing the clash of genres, star-DJ Boys Noize will conquer the stage with an exciting premiere of his own: the Germany-wide launch of his new Dog Blood project, conceived with EDM-superstar Skrillex. Chvrches, MS MR, Everything Everything, Glass Animals, Crystal Fighters, and Wolf Alice will perform. FFS (Franz Ferdinand & Sparks) will take the festival stage for the first time with a symbiosis of synth rock and British indie sounds.
While dance-stars and chart-favorites like Clean Bandit, Martin Garrix and Robin Schulz will duke it out on Perry’s Stage, critic-favorites like Tame Impala, Run The Jewels, Little Dragon, and Hot Chip will take on Lollapalloza’s alternative stage.
With four stages, the unique festival experience for the little ones, Kidzapalooza, glittering highlights from the worlds of fashion and art as well as the hustle and bustle of Berlin’s urban charm, Lollapalooza’s cross-genre music format surely is an entirely new and unique addition to Germany’s festival landscape.
Additional acts, as well as program details, will be announced over the coming weeks.
