Lollapalooza Festival

Learn how to pronounce the names of the acts at this year's Lollapalooza music festival

Lollapalooza is an annual music festival which was conceived and created in 1991 by Jane's Addiction singer Perry Farrell as a farewell tour for his band.

The word dates from a late 19th-/early 20th-century American idiomatic phrase meaning "an extraordinary or unusual thing, person, or event; an exceptional example or instance." Its earliest known use was in 1896. In time the term also came to refer to a large lollipop.

Farrell, searching for a name for his festival, liked the euphonious quality of the by-then-antiquated term upon hearing it in a Three Stooges short film. Paying homage to the term's double meaning, a character in the festival's original logo holds one of the lollipops.
