Paramount+ Slates Lollapalooza Docuseries


Lolla: The Story of Lollapalooza, a three-part series about the eponymous music festival, is slated to bow on Paramount+ on May 21 in the U.S. and Canada and May 22 in other territories.

The Lollapalooza music festival, born in the summer of 1991, began as a farewell tour for the band Jane’s Addiction but has since launched a cultural movement and changed music forever. The docuseries depicts the 30-year relationship between the festival and Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell, who reconnects with what the event has become and reflects on its cultural significance across decades.

Lolla: The Story of Lollapalooza is produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and FunMeter, in partnership with C3 Presents. It is directed by Michael John Warren (Spring Awakening: Those You’ve Known, Jay-Z’s Fade to Black). It is executive produced by Bruce Gillmer and Amanda Culkowski for MTV Entertainment Studios; James Lee Hernandez and Brian Lazarte (McMillions) for FunMeter; Daniel Gibbs and Mat Whittington for C3 Presents; Brian Levy for Entertainment 36; and Warren. Farrell, Charlie Walker, Charles Attal and Berkeley Reinhold are producers.

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

After debuting in the U.S. and Canada on May 21, the docuseries will launch on May 22 in the U.K., Australia, Latin America, Brazil, France, Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
