US festival Lollapalooza has announced that it is launching a new edition in India next year. The first iteration of the event in Asia will take place in January.

No venue for the festival has yet been announced, although promoters have said that it will take place in central Mumbai. Around 45 acts will play across four stages over two days, with just over half the line-up international acts, and the rest made up of local artists.

“The music of India is transcendental, it draws our spirits east”, says festival founder Perry Farrell. “Lollapalooza is an instrument for unity, peace, and education utilising the universal languages of music and art to find common ground. You may be excited, and we are equally as excited!”

Charlie Walker of co-promoter C3 Presents, which is owned by Live Nation, adds: “Lollapalooza has always been about exploring boundaries, musically and geographically. We are excited to introduce Indian and Asian fans to an entirely new festival experience that has been a significant rite of passage for millions of music fans around the world for more than three decades”.

Lollapalooza India is set to take place on 28-29 Jan 2023. Early bird tickets will go on sale on 1 Aug for 7000 rupees (about £73). You can register for access here.
