Lollapalooza Festival, Berlin, Germany, Sep 8 – 9, 2018

Lolla Berlin kicked off in 2015 with a lot of noise and sun, claiming new ground in one of the greatest cities in the world. Each year, the German edition of Lollapalooza fuses tons of international and nationally known acts together for 2 days of incredible music and fun-loving fans. Making its home in Berlin’s Olympic Stadium, this is one unique festival music-lovers have to check out.

The secret to one of the most established and prestigious festival brands and its Berlin offshoot is its special programme and diversity: as soon as you arrive on the festival grounds, visitors of all ages become part of a festival experience which is unique on the international event circuit.

In terms of festival experience and entertainment, Lollapalooza sets new standards and creates moments that last: there’s the open air gallery full of art and installations; Kidzapalooza, a festival for kids within the festival; the environmentally sustainable Grüne Kiez; and plenty of street theatre, artistry and acrobatics at Lolla Fun Fair. Incredible food, wine bars and a bag full of surprises on top turned this festival into one of the country’s ultimate cultural highlights.
