Lollapalooza has become a brand that no longer needs any 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 Lollapalooza Paris is, since last year, the second European appointment. It takes place in the splendid setting of the Longchamp Hippodrome, an ideal place to host musical events.
Naturally, the festival is a good excuse to visit one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
At the Lollapalooza Paris, music 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.
