The man responsible for it all! Perry Farrell stopped by to chat with us about what it's like to be the founder of Lollapalooza, and we have to admit it sounds like a pretty sweet gig: "I'm watching the faces...and seeing the smiles and seeing the pride that these young musicians have as they carry themselves into Grant Park...I'm with them and I'm rooting for them!"

The Jane's Addiction frontman also praised the Chicago nightlife scene—the Lolla after parties go super late this year—and life on the road with his band. Oh, and Farrell also shares what it's like to get "hit in the ass with a bass." The more you know.
