The travelling bash looks like coming to Britain soon...
Jane’s Addiction frontman and LOLLAPALOOZA co-founder PERRY FARRELL says he is working on giving the American travelling music festival a UK birth.
Though bringing the stateside event, which resumed last year after an almost decade long break, to Britain has been bantered about for some time, Farrell told NME.COM he has finally begun to talk to interested parties about setting things up.
“I’m starting to begin to speak to people in the UK,” he said. “I’m not going to rush it because I want to [bring it over], I’m going to do it because all of a sudden the universe will open up and say, ‘Go over there now! You should go there.’”
He continued: “I just have to go slow. You gotta catch a rhythm. With music, it’s funny, people will ask me a lot of questions about putting on festivals. What they don’t realise is you’re out there in the universe and music’s out there in the universe and you have to hope that the music and you cross paths.”
The US instalment this year features Morrissey, Polyphonic Spree, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Thrills, – The Datsuns, Danger Mouse and Gomez and Farrell says they’d like to come to the UK with an equally stellar cast.
“With going over to Europe, I just want to make sure that when we go, I’ve got a wonderful line-up and I have the time to do it.”
