About Perry Farrell:
Perry Farrell is one of the most influential and original musical figures in recent history. Dubbed as the "Godfather of Alternative Rock,” Farrell fronts Jane's Addiction, which formed in 1985. Creating a new genre and musical movement, Farrell and Jane's Addiction changed the music scene and paved the way for bands such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, and STP. In 1993, Perry created Porno for Pyros, a daring evolution to his diversity and growth. As well as being a groundbreaking musician, he is the creator and founder of Lollapalooza. Launched in 1991, Spin magazine listed Lollapalooza as the #1 tour that changed the world. Known for its musical diversity, Lollapalooza was instrumental in exposing alternative music formats to the masses and establishing a sense of commonality across a fragmented demographic. The first of its kind, Lollapalooza quickly established itself as a lifestyle festival, pushing the envelope and exposing concert goers to a subculture of 'alternative' living and art, and provided a platform for numerous environmental and human-rights causes as well. In 2011, Farrell was presented with the inaugural Billboard Apple Award. In honor of legendary promoter Bill Graham that is presented to a visionary artist or touring professional who goes the extra mile in making sure fans enjoy an exemplary concert experience. He also took Lollapalooza international with the launch of Lollapalooza Chile and is expanding with Lollapalooza Brazil this year.
