April 26, 2024

Paramount+ has announced that the upcoming docuseries Lolla: The Story of Lollapalooza will premiere exclusively on the service in the US and Canada on May 21st and on May 22nd in the UK, Australia, Latin America, Brazil, France, Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

Directed by Michael John Warren and executive produced by James Lee Hernandez and Brian Lazarte, the three-part series made its world premiere at the 2024 Sundance Film Festival.

In the summer of 1991, the Lollapalooza music festival was born. What started as a farewell tour for the band Jane’s Addiction rose from the underground to launch a cultural movement. Lolla: The Story of Lollapalooza depicts the  symbiotic 30+ year relationship between the iconic festival and Perry Farrell of Jane’s Addiction. Throughout the series, Farrell reconnects with what the event has become and reflects on the festival’s cultural significance across multiple genres and decades.

“Finally, someone cares about the generation that no one cared about,” commented Farrell.

Lolla: The Story of Lollapalooza is produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and FunMeter, in partnership with C3 Presents.
