Perry Farrell’s Kidzapalooza to debut at Hollywood Bowl

Kid-friendly festival hits Los Angeles this summer

Kidzapalooza, the kid-friendly music festival founded by Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell as a companion to Lollapalooza, is set to debut at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles this summer.

Farrell and other special guests will perform at the show on September 28.

Kidzapalooza was introduced in 2005 as part of Farrell’s Lollapalooza festival in Chicago and featured family-friendly performances and activities such breakdancing lessons, hip-hop and freestyle workshops, rock ‘n roll hairdos and fake tattoos.


This year’s Kidzapalooza will expand on the original model and take advantage of the Hollywood Bowl‘s park setting.

“The Bowl is an ideal venue for Kidzapalooza,” said Farrell in a statement. “With its massive space on the site’s grounds in addition to a stage platform second to none, the Bowl allows us to fully realize the Kidzapalooza model.”

Additional acts are expected to be announced in the coming weeks. For tickets and information, visit
