Lollapalooza is an annual festival of music featuring popular heavy metal, punk rock, alternative rock and hip hop bands. This year, it turned 20 and founder Perry Farrell took the festival to Santiago, Chile to celebrate it.

According to Wikipedia, Lollapalooza was started in 1991 by Farrell, Jane’s Addiction singer as a farewell tour for his band. It ran annually until 1997 and was revived in 2003. This is the first time that Lollapalooza was held out of the country.

“The 20-year-old American music festival picked Santiago for its first overseas outing because of its open space and the variety of cultural offerings, and because locals have a passion for contemporary music,,” Farrell was quoted saying.

Lollapalooza Chile featured several acts which include the Killers, Kanye West, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Los Bunkers, Cypress Hill, Deftones, Ben Harper, the National, Cat Power and 30 Seconds to Mars.

According to its official website, Lollapalooza was held in Chile on April 2 and 3, 2011.
