Perry Farrell - The Killers, West & Jane's Addiction Headline Lollapalooza Chile

PERRY FARRELL's inaugural Lollapalooza festival in Chile is kicking off with a big bang - THE KILLERS, KANYE WEST and his band JANE'S ADDICTION will headline the 2011 event.
The rocker has teamed up with Chile's Lotus Producciones, WME and C3 Presents to stage the two-day event at Santiago's O'Higgins Park from 2 April (11). Lollapalooza Chile will be an off-shoot from the annual festival staged at Chicago, Illinois' Grant Park.
Also included in the line-up is the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, while Farrell will be serving double duty when he plays with his electronic side project Perryetty.
In a statement announcing the headliners, Farrell says, "The job we did to gather these artists for 2011 was remarkable. Imagine gathering 60 artists while the contract ink is still wet. We put it together at a record pace as we had four months. We did not want to come to Chile with a line-up that was anything other than world-class... Our selections are very animated, with much diversity. There is Chilean talent in the mix...
"Our ambition is to plant a very strong seed in Chile. One that will grow over the years, and provide Santiago with an event for the ages."
Farrell initially launched Lollapalooza as a touring festival in 1991, before basing it in Chicago in 2005.
