More About the Line-up

The countdown to the 6th April has begun, with thousands of music lovers due to converge on O’Higgins Park in Santiago for the third annual Lollapalooza Chile. This year, another stellar line-up awaits, with the biggest drawcards being Pearl Jam, the Killers, Deadmau5 and the Black Keys. But, there are plenty of lesser known musical pleasures for festival-goers to experience. We’ve highlighted our favourites for you to check out – Happy Lollapalooza-ing!

Toro Y Moi (If you like Prince) The operating name of California resident Chaz Bundick, Toro Y Moi began making music in his bedroom over a decade ago. Now in his prime, his wide array of influences mean his music is hard to pin down under one particular genre. Some call it dance, some call it chillwave, while it also has references to hip-hop, pop, funk and psych. Whatever it is, it’s bound to make you dance!

Gary Clark Jnr (If you like Jimi Hendrix) - You know someone’s doing alright when they’re being compared with Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton, and once you listen to Gary Clark Jnr’s music you’ll understand the comparisons. The Austin, Texas native’s contemporary sound is a joy to behold, dripping with dirty guitar licks, soulful crooning and elements of blues, hip-hop and jazz.

Foals (If you like Bloc Party) - Veterans of the indie-rock game, British band Foals arrive in Chile on a roll after the recent release of their brilliant third album, Holy Fire (which reached as high as number 2 on the UK charts). Their high-energy brand of music is perfect for a festival crowd, with their latest album perhaps their heaviest to date. Anticipate plenty of fireworks from their set.

The Temper Trap (If you like U2) - The Australian five-piece have become known worldwide for their gorgeous brand of Indie-Pop music. The band’s history dates all the way back to 1999, when Indonesian-born singer Dougy Mandagi (who was at the time busking on the streets of Melbourne) met Jonathon Aherne, who had not even started playing guitar. Picking up band members along the way, they did not release their first album until 2009, but were soon performing to sold-out shows all over the world.

Alabama Shakes (If you like Black Keys) - Formed in 2009, Alabama Shakes rose to prominence last year on the back of their debut album Boys & Girls – receiving three Grammy nominations along the way. Lead by the powerful vocals of lead singer Brittany Howard, the four-piece has wowed audiences all over the world with their soulful take on Americana rock.
