Born 20 years ago out of punk rock will and unbridled passion, Lollapalooza—founded by Perry Farrell, festival visionary and lead singer of Jane’s Addiction–has rocked through the parks, amphitheaters and fairgrounds of North America before becoming an acclaimed destination festival in Chicago every summer, leaving countless memorable musical moments in its wake. Next year, the festival will once again touch down in South America with the second edition of Lollapalooza Chile in O’Higgins Park in Santiago, March 31 – April 1, 2012, and will venture across the continent for the first-ever Lollapalooza Brazil at the Jockey Club in São Paulo, April 7-8, 2012.

In a feat of cultural exchange last April, Lollapalooza Chile captured the eyes, ears and imagination of South America. In 2012 the continent will experience a double dose of this Lollapalooza magic when the festival makes back-to-back weekend stops in Chile and Brazil. The two festivals will share some–but not all acts–on their bills. Lollapalooza Chile and Lollapalooza Brazil will both welcome the Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys, Skrillex, Calvin Harris, MGMT, TV On The Radio, Bassnectar, Band of Horses, Thievery Corporation, Peaches, Cage the Elephant, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Friendly Fires, Foster the People and Tinie Tempah.

Fresh from triumphing over the elements with this year’s Lollapalooza U.S. headline set of a lifetime, Foo Fighters are sure to turn equally dynamic main stage closing sets in both Brazil and Chile– performances that will mark the Foos’ first trip ever in Chile as well as their first Brazilian appearance in over a decade.

Festivalgoers in Chile will experience rare treats with Bjork and Avicii, as well as an eclectic collection of bands including progressive rockers Los Jaivas, the socially conscious Juana Fe, punk rock giant BBS Paranoicos, and the Chilean revelation of rockorgánico, Camila Moreno.

Lollapalooza Brazil will host the triumphant return of Jane’s Addiction and a special blend of iconic indie rockers from every region of the country, including Plebe Rude from Brasília, Wander Wildner from Porto Alegre and Cascadura from Salvador. “The people of Sao Paulo have been very active–twittering me whom they want to see in the 2012 Lolla lineup,” states Farrell. “Judging by all the requests, they are going to erupt. We really delivered for them. Now, I want them to show me how you party in Brasil!”

Both of these two-day music extravaganzas will take place in a gorgeous urban setting, with multiple music stages, an electronic tent, amazing local fare, and a Kidzapalooza area for the little rockers.

Lollapalooza Chile will return to O’Higgins Park in Santiago on March 31 – April 1, 2012. Discounted two-day passes are on-sale now, while supplies last. After that, tickets will be available at the regular price at www.lollapaloozacl.com

Lollapalooza: Lollapalooza was born two decades ago when Perry Farrell, lead singer of fabled alternative rockers Jane’s Addiction, started planning a farewell tour for the group. His idea morphed into a larger-than-life musical roadshow that would bring music, culture and community to fans across North America, before finding a permanent home in Chicago’s historic Grant Park in 2005.

Lollapalooza was reborn as a summer destination festival, delivering an ever-more diverse array of 130+ artists from all genres on eight states. Widely considered one of the premier festivals in the world, Lollapalooza continues to thrive in the Windy City getting bigger and better with every year. This year’s gathering was headlined by Eminem, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, MUSE, My Morning Jacket, DeadMau5, Cold War Kids, and A Perfect Circle.

Perry Farrell is one of the most influential and original musical figures in recent history. Dubbed as the “Godfather of Alternative Rock,” Farrell fronts Jane’s Addiction which formed in 1985. Creating a new genre and musical movement, Farrell and Jane’s Addiction changed the music scene and paved the way for bands such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, and STP. In 1993, Perry created Porno for Pyros, a daring evolution to his diversity and growth. As well as being a groundbreaking musician, he is the creator and founder of Lollapalooza. Launched in 1991, SPIN magazine listed Lollapalooza as the #1 tour that changed the world. Known for its musical diversity, Lollapalooza was instrumental in exposing alternative music formats to the masses and establishing a sense of commonality across a fragmented demographic. The first of its kind, Lollapalooza quickly established itself as a lifestyle festival, pushing the envelope and exposing concert goers to a subculture of ‘alternative’ living and art, and provided a platform for numerous environmental and human-rights causes as well. As a constant creative force, Farrell continues to push his own artistic horizon as a music producer, electronic music performer and visual artist, as well as a rock icon. In November 2011, he was honored at the annual Billboard Touring Conference & Awards with the “Apple Award.” Perry is the first-ever recipient of this award, which commemorates the 20th anniversary of legendary promoter Bill Graham’s death. Perry received this honor because Billboard recognized that Perry has always given fans special experiences, as Graham did before him (the “Apple Award” is so named because Bill Graham gave out apples to fans leaving Fillmore West shows).

Celebrated electronic music producer/DJ/singer-songwriter CALVIN HARRIS has announced details for the release of his new single “Feel So Close” out now via Ultra Music. The single follows the success of the radio and chart smash “Bounce” featuring Kelis released earlier this year. Both tracks will be featured on CALVIN’s upcoming artist album expected for early 2012.

While “Bounce” featured vocals from Kelis, “Feel So Close” spotlights vocals by CALVIN himself. The single is indie meets dance while having the usual catchy hit factor of a CALVIN HARRIS single with an anthemic euphoria in its feel-good chorus and echoing guitars and drums. Already in the U.S., the track is charting at #2 on iTunes Store’s Top 10 Dance Albums chart and is #1 in the U.K. on the Overall Album chart. Find “Feel So Close” and remixes of the track on iTunes: http://smarturl.it/FEELSOCLOSE

The video, shot beautifully by Vincent Haycock who also lensed the clip for “Bounce,” is a rollercoaster of happy emotions. The video, which has already garnered over 3 million views, can be viewed here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XkzsaPM5Pp4.

Remixes come courtesy of Nero, Benny Benassi and Dillon Francis and will be released via Ultra Music as part of the “Feels So Close” single package.

This summer found CALVIN touring the world with his live presentation that has evolved into a one–man electronic performance encompassing both DJ set and on-the-spot production. This September, he returns to North America for appearances at Electric Zoo in NYC, clubs in Southern California, Florida, and Calgary, Canada as well as two dates of his residency at the Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas. Afterwards he’ll embark on a 56-date European tour with pop superstar Rihanna; it kicks off in Belfast on September 28 and includes 10 nights at London’s O2 Arena.
CALVIN HARRIS has had a crazy few years with seven Top 10 singles, including two #1 singles with “I’m Not Alone” and “Dance Wiv Me” (with Dizzee Rascal) and over 1.5 million tracks and 500,000 albums sold in the U.K. News on CALVIN’s new artist album will be announced soon.

Tuesday October 12, 2010 sees the release of the brand new single “Hands” from The Ting Tings, which you can find streaming on the band’s Facebook page starting 5:00pm EST today. A work of pure electro-disco heaven, “Hands” is a global shout out to everyone who’s working too hard. Written, performed and produced by Jules and Katie in their home made studio in Berlin, it has been mixed by label mate Calvin Harris. Check out a sneak peak of the song with a clip of the band introducing the track here: http://www.nypost.com/blogs/popwrap

The Ting Tings launched themselves into the world with their DIY hardcore-pop in 2008 to massive acclaim and success, with their hit singles “That’s Not My Name” and “Shut Up And Let Me Go” along with “Great DJ” selling over 4 million copies worldwide. With their music becoming the soundtrack not only on the radio but also to countless shows and films from “Slumdog Millionaire” to the likes of “Gossip Girl”, The Ting Tings debut album “We Started Nothing” went on to selling over two million copies. They also won the prestigious Ivor Novello Award for “Best Album” in 2009 and received a Grammy Nomination for “Best New Artist”.

After a whirlwind of touring live in the US, Europe and almost everywhere else non-stop for the last two years, The Ting Tings chose to move to Berlin to live and work. Renting out a disused basement jazz club in East Berlin’s Freidrichshain District, they turned it into their own studio, much as they had done back in 2007 when they took up residence in the artist’s haven The Islington Mill in Salford, near Manchester where “We Started Nothing” was made. Spending the winter of 2009 with their music equipment, fairy-lights, pens and gaffer tape and with no TV, no visiting friends, no distractions at all, they wrote, recorded and produced their next album. “Hands” is the first track to come from those sessions.

“Our time in Berlin was a fresh start, with no rules again” explains Jules, “when you’ve had an album that’s been successful, the danger is you go back in the studio, look back and try and emulate it”. “it’d be so lazy and easy to make the same album twice” adds Katie. A blast of the dancefloor monster “Hands” shows they mean what they say – a totally brand new sound from The Ting Tings and an exciting taste of things to come.

Fans can listen to “Hands” by visiting The Ting Tings’ Facebook page (www.facebook.com/thetingtings). A remix of “Hands” will also be available as an mp3 download starting today!
