Lollapalooza Argentina confirms its 6th edition for 2019

June 28, 2018

Lollapalooza Argentina has officially announced that the festival will be returning to the Hipodromo de San Isidro in Buenos Aires, Argentina from March 29-31. The festival will be taking place on the same days in Santiago, Chile and a week later it will make its way to Sao Paolo, Brazil. The lineup has not been announced but will most likely be released towards the end of the year after the presales are over. 

Early Bird tickets will be going on sale July 4th at 10 AM here, the presale is only available to Santander Rio card holders. Early Bird tickets will start at $2500 Argentina Pesos and once the 40,000 ticket stock sells out Presale 1 will move on to be $3500 pesos. On July 10th the presales will continue and will most likely be open to all cards, the only tickets being sold are 3 day passes to the event. 

Lollapalooza has become Argentinas most anticipated festival of the year and by far the one with the highest attendance. The edition that took place this year was a total success and all tickets had sold out. The festivals diverse lineup brought us acts such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Chance the Rapper, Imagine Dragons, Royal Blood, Mac DeMarco, Hardwell, Spoon, The Killers, Anderson Paak, Liam Gallagher, and so many more. In 2019 the festival will be taking place over the course of 3 days, which was planned for 2018 but due to weather conditions, the event was cut short a day. Argentina missed out on bands such as Pearl Jam, The National, and LCD Soundsystem but 2019 will make up for it.

Puede sonar exagerado, pero podemos hablar de que el festival Lollapalooza ya está consagrado en Chile. Es una de las fechas más esperadas del año para quienes gustan de la música y las artes. Es tanto el impacto, que durante los días de duración del festival, cuenta con toda la disposición de la ciudad de Santiago para facilitar el acceso al Parque O’higgins. Un recinto que ha albergado las 8 versiones de este festival, y un espacio privilegiado según todo quien lo visita. Con la magia de los multiples ambientes que posee, entre árboles y explanadas, sumado a un Arena dentro del parque, cerrado e ideal para la música electrónica, brinda una experiencia única.

Para este año se programaron 3 días de shows, sincronizados en las fechas con su versión en Argentina. En un comienzo parecía complicado, pues al sábado y domingo se le agregó el viernes, día en el que la mayoría de la ciudad trabaja. Pero esto no fue impedimento, ya que el mismo viernes, a las 16:00 hrs. una cantidad de gente considerable esperaba y llenaba las verdes areas del parque con sus poleras de Pearl Jam. Eran ellos, los oriundos de Seattle liderados por Eddie Vedder, los headliners encargados de cerrar el primer día.

Con un lineup de lujo, entre Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Killers, Imagine Dragons, Lana del Rey, Liam Gallagher y Wiz Khalifa, entre otros, pasando por algunos nombres que jamás habían pisado tierras chilenas, como es el caso de Chance the Rapper, o Anderson .Paak, el festival repartió entre los 3 días la gran paleta de músicos con la que contaba a su disposición de una forma bastante inteligente, dejando números interesantes en todos los días. Una experiencia de festival que el mismo Lolla ha enseñado en cada versión a sus asistentes: vitrinear entre lo que sonó, y suena hoy en día.  

Las polémicas no estuvieron aparte. Debido a las malas condiciones del clima en Argentina (que incluso causaron la suspensión del festival en dicho país para el día domingo), algunos equipos de ciertas bandas no pudieron ser trasladados a Chile. Esto generó un re-ajuste en todos los horarios y escenarios del día sábado y domingo. Sin embargo, la producción logró sobrellevar todos los contratiempos de buena forma. Incluso, el más polémico de todos, y que tuvo como protagonista al menor de los hermanos Gallagher, Liam. El ex Oasis quién al igual como lo hizo en la versión del mismo festival en Chicago, 2017, abandonó abruptamente el escenario, argumentando una enfermedad y excusándose por no seguir con su show. Este incendio, lo terminó apagando The Killers, uno de los artistas más esperados y quienes liderados por Brandon Boyd, interpretaron “Wonderwall”, hit de los Gallagher y que logró consolar a muchos, dejando con una sensación mucho más dulce que amarga del último día. Ellos, junto al rapero Wiz Khalifa, fueron los encargados de cerrar la jornada, y la versión 2018, con más expectativas y la certeza de que Lollapalooza ya pasó a ser parte de la cultura chilena.

Everything you need to know about Lollapalooza…

Everything you need to know about Lollapalooza Argentina

Lollapalooza Argentina is held annually at the Hipodromo de San Isidro in the heart of Buenos Aires. Over the years Lollapalooza Argentina has expanded and transformed itself into the most popular festival held in Argentina, and probably South America. In 2017 over 200,000 people attended the 2-day event, and it sold out completely. This year the festivals 5th edition will be taking place from March 16-18. 2018 looks a lot like 2017 as 3-day festival passes and day 1 tickets are officially sold out. This is a guide for all you gringos heading to Argentina 😉

Lineup

This years lineup consists of artists from almost every genre and I think it caters to almost anyone’s tastes. Whether you’re a die-hard rock n’ roll, EDM, or hip-hop fan, Lollapalooza has something to offer you. The 2018 headliners are Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Killers, and Pearl Jam. Our favorite supporting artists are as follows, Mac De Marco, Liam Gallagher, The National, Metronomy, LCD Soundsystem, Milky Chance, David Bryne, Spoon, and The Neighborhood. You can find the festivals full lineup here.

Tickets

3-day festival passes and day 1 tickets are sold out however you can still purchase tickets for days 2 and 3. The official ticket vendor is AllAccess. If you’re looking for 3-day tickets you should try searching on Facebook and Twitter, StubHub should be your last resort. Single day tickets cost $1990 Argentine Pesos ($100 USD). Get your tickets here.

5 Stages

Lollapalooza has 5 stages. Main Stage 1 and 2, Perrys Stage, the Alternative Stage, and the Kidzapalooza Stage. If you’re into DJ’s and EDM that’s whats on at Perry’s Stage all day and night. Kidzapalooza is a stage and area for kids. Kids up until the age of 10 can get in the festival for free.

Cashless

Lollapalooza is a ‘cashless’ festival. That means you can’t pay cash for food, merch, and drinks. Festival bracelets are used to pay for stuff, you can add money to your wristband before the festival or at the festival. There will be booths at the festival where you can put money on your bracelet with either cash or your credit card. Add money to your wristband (if you already have it) here.

Getting there

Lollapalooza offers various ways for getting to the festival. Lollapalooza has a parking lot however that has to be purchased online via All Access. You could also park your car around the Hipodromo de San Isidro, but if you plan on doing this make sure to arrive early. Getting a taxi is another way, but it might be complicated to get a driver when the festival ends so make sure to figure something out. The train line ‘Mitre’ has a stop in San Isidro (a short walk to the festival) so it is possible to arrive at the festival via train from downtown Buenos Aires or Tigre. More train info can be found here. Another alternative for getting to the festival is by bus. Lines 60, 15, and 21 will get you where you need to be.

Hotels

If you’re traveling to the festival and are looking for a place to stay, here are some nice hotels in the San Isidro area. Click on the name of the hotels to visit their website. San Isidro Plaza Hotel, Hotel Del Casco, Hotel Alto, and Villa Isidro. Downtown Buenos Aires is 25-40 minutes away from the festival so when you’re booking a hotel that isn’t in San Isidro keep that in mind.

Tips

Lollapalooza Argentina is a massive event and in past years organizers haven’t really been able to do a good job. If you want to have a good experience I recommend getting to the festival early so that it doesn’t take an hour to get in. It’s also a good idea to buy water bottles and eat food early. At night when everyone arrives, you’ll have to wait about an hour to get food and water. If you’ve never been to a festival or concert in Argentina then get ready for the best moshpits and crowds in the world. Argentine people have so much energy and they all jump a lot. If you’re not into rough crowds then stay in the back for the headliners because it’s going to be insane. So many people pass out so try and stay hydrated and safe. Countless phones get robbed at the festival every year, avoid this by getting a fanny pack or small bag that you can keep safe so this doesn’t happen.  

Sideshows

If festivals just aren’t your thing, or you’d just rather see your favorite band in a more intimate venue, these sideshows are for you. Sideshows are held in various venues around the city of Buenos Aires and happen either before or after the festival. Below we’ve listed all the sideshows. Tickets here.

Liam Gallagher @ DirectTV Arena on March 14

Anderson .Paak and the Free Nationals @ Niceto Club on March 14
