Kanye West Headlines Chilean Lollapalooza, Cypress Hill Joins Bill

Cypress Hill and Kanye West bring some domestic Hip Hop to South America for the first Lollapalooza festival outside of the US.

Kanye West is already headlining the annual Coachella music festival in Indio, California. When the complete lineups were announced, the even sold out within hours. Now it has been announced West will headline the first South American edition of Lollapalooza, as the festival heads to Chile. The festival is the brainchild of Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell and is usually held at Grant Park in West’s native Chicago.

“We are confident a massive music audience is awaiting us in Santiago,” Farrell said, in a written statement. “What we are very interested to learn is how widely spread the demographic will be. In Chicago we have hipsters as well as young parents with children in attendance. It is one of the few places in the world where a generation gap doesn't exist.”

Lollapalooza is going international 20 years after first making its domestic debut. West and Cypress Hill will be the most notable Hip Hop acts in the predominately Rock/Alt lineup. Lollapalooza Chile will take place April 2 – 3 in O’Higgins Park in Santiago. More information is available at the official Lollapalooza Chile website.

    THIS IS TO EACH FRIEND OR FAM MEMBER ON FB:I'm not posting this on my wall right now in honor of a friend who was hit by a drunk driver and is now in a coma. Before I say anything else I do ask that you pray for her recovery. I was recently interviewed by a west coast magazine, and just had the interview published to the mag site. If I get enough FB likes my interview will go into the actual magazine. The link is http://wwsmag.com/updates/bryant-c-caught-up-20-10/ I just ask that you take a look, and press like for me. I made it an honest interview so I'm sure that you will like it. http://wwsmag.com/updates/bryant-c-caught-up-20-10/
