The Lollapalooza Berlin, one of the most renowned summer festivals, comes in its third edition. A brand that needs no introduction. A traveling festival that, between highs and lows, has become, for almost forty years, a point of reference in the field of summer music festivals.
Born in 1991 in the United States, the festival has been exported to Chile, Argentina and Brazil, before appearing on the European music scene in Berlin. The last edition was a real success. Lineup and organization, are the basis of the success of this review. Foo Fighters, Radiohead, Muse, Mumford & Sons, Kings Of Leon, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Major Lazer, are some of the names that have trod the scenes in the previous two years.
Naturally, the festival is a good excuse to visit Berlin, a city of extraordinary beauty and great artistic-cultural ferment.
At the Lollapalooza Berlin, music, of course, is the great protagonist. And, as usual, the genres will be the most varied, suitable for all tastes and ages. And it is precisely on this last theme that efforts have been concentrated by the organizers, with a sort of festival in the festival: Kidzapalooza. It is a space entirely dedicated to families, to which children can take part up to 14 years. Activities, workshops, games and lots of music to share with the family. But the activities do not stop here.
