Perry Farrell’s Lollapalooza is coming back to Latin America in March and April 2017 once again for its three successful regional editions in Chile, Argentina, and Brazil. All three versions of the fest will be headlined by big international names, including Metallica, The Strokes, The Weeknd, and The xx. But here at Remezcla, we’re most excited by each festival’s commitment to represent Latin American talent.

The Chilean edition’s programmers really turned it up with the inclusion of Bomba Estéreo, Alex Anwandter, Mariel Mariel, (Me Llamo) Sebastián, and Prehistöricos. Argentine festivalgoers will be pampered with shows by OGs like León Gieco and Turf, plus Lisandro Aristimuño, Campo, Nicola Cruz, and La Yegros. Last, but not least, it’s a welcome surprise to see brega youngster Jaloo share the Brazilian bill with more established acts like rapper Criolo and singer-songwriters Ceú and Suricato. Of course, there are tons of other local artists worth your time, so make sure you check out the full lineups below.
