Lollapalooza Colombia Canceled: Report

Lollapalooza’s inaugural festival in Colombia had to be unfortunately canceled. 

As Consequence of Sound reports (via La Tercera), the festival organizers were unable to replace a headlining act in time. The festival’s lineup featured Lana Del ReyDisclosureWiz Khalifa, and more. The festival was to take place in the country’s capital of Bogotá from September 17-18.

The festival’s website states that the headlining act canceled their performance just hours before the lineup announcement. According to Consequence of Sound, the unnamed headliner was Rihanna, who decided to pull out of the festival because of a Zika virus scare. Rihanna has not given an official statement. 

Lollapalooza will celebrate its 25th anniversary in Chicago this year, with RadioheadLCD Soundsystem and Red Hot Chili Peppers headlining. Find more information here.
