Without Lollapalooza, American alternative rock music history would not be the same. The festival has gotten the wide public acquainted with many acts that went on to become massively influential. In the beginning Lollapalooza was a tour, but since 2005 it is a destination festival which takes place every year in Grant Park in Chicago. In addition to rock music there are performers that belong to other genres, such as hip hop, pop, and electronic dance music. Lollapalooza has proven to be so successful that it went global, holding festivals in Germany, Chile and Brazil.
