WHERE: Berlin, Germany
WHEN: 09 – 10 September 2023
Lollapalooza Berlin is one of the most famous festivals of the summer. A brand that needs no introduction. A traveling festival that, between highs and lows, has become, for almost forty years, a point of reference in the context of summer music festivals.
Born in 1991 in the United States, the festival has been exported to Chile, Argentina and Brazil, before appearing on the European music scene in Berlin. The last edition was a real success. Lineup and organization, are the basis of the success of this review. Foo Fighters, Radiohead, Muse, Mumford & Sons, Kings Of Leon, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Major Lazer, are some of the names that have trod the scenes in the previous two years.
Naturally, the festival is a good excuse to visit Berlin, a city of extraordinary beauty and great artistic-cultural ferment.
At the Lollapalooza Berlin, music, of course, is the great protagonist. And, as usual, the genres will be the most varied, suitable for all tastes and ages. And it is precisely on this last theme that efforts have been concentrated by the organizers, with a sort of festival in the festival: Kidzapalooza. It is a space entirely dedicated to families, to which children can take part up to 14 years. Activities, workshops, games and lots of music to share with the family. But the activities do not stop here.

Berlin is easily accessible by train, car and plane. Direct connections are guaranteed for the main European destinations.
Seat of the Lollapalooza Berlin is the splendid area of the Olympiapark with its Olympiastadion. The beautiful place is easily accessible by public transport, which we recommend absolutely. You can use both the S-Bahn and the U-Bahn, whose stops are a short distance from here.
With the S-Bahn suburban railway, simply get off at the Olympiastadion stop; you can use the S3, S5, S7 and S9 lines. With the U2 U-Bahn line, instead, you have to get off at the Olympia-Stadion stop.
All the info to get around Berlin, tickets and timetables for public transport are available on our Berlin official page.
