Lollapalooza Paris 2019

Recommended Posts

Loved Metric at the London Forum last July so hoping this and the festival they're already announced for over the same weekend in Romania is a sign they're going to return to the UK around the same time.

But its like Lolla Berlin last year - a few bands I would see are scattered around but not enough to make me want to go. Certainly not like the superb bill they put up for Paris 18.

Migos - Biffy Clyro - Perry Farrell's Kind Heaven Orchestra - Metric - 4B b2b Aazar - Gus Dapperton - Kovacs - Ghali - Barny Fletcher - The Prince Karma - KLYMVX are the new additions

Compared to what Nos Alive/Mad Cool and FIB Benicassim/SBSR are getting, this is very underwhelming. I am hoping for a better lineup from Lollapalooza Berlin which will be announced on Wednesday.

How many festivals are you going to?! Think I've seen you comment on quite a few in the context or you attending, haha.

Haha I haven't bought any tickets for a festival yet. Right now I am just looking at the options to decide but none of them really shines like Mad Cool did last year. I attended Mad Cool and Lollapalooza Paris last year that's why I wanted to open topics for Lollapalooza Paris and Berlin 😂

Awful compared to last year.

Guys does anyone know how easy is it to get to the centre of Paris from the festival site? 

Rather easy enough. My brother and I used Porte Dauphine on Metro Line 2, which had regular shuttle buses before and after. Station was easiest for us to get back to a hotel we were staying at near Gare de l'Est station. Big queues after but that's fairly natural and no worse than usual. Other metro stations with buses between site and station are also available on Metro Lines 1 and 10.

We stayed near Museum D'Orsay and each day we used the chauffeur prive app that google maps suggested. It had the same interface with uber and 5 of our rides were 5 euros off so it took us around 12 Euros to go there each day. Going back was a hassle with bus/metro or chauffeur prive/uber depending on the price and the traffic but it was much better than most city festivals like Mad Cool

Does anyone know if they have a volunteer scheme that grants you a free ticket like most UK festivals? If so is it worth doing? I want to go just to see Biffy Clyro so would be happy to work most of it if it meant not having to spend money on a ticket. Cheers

Could anyone who has been before explain the cashless system the website states the festival has? Is it as simple as just using your card everywhere or do you have to get a wristband/card etc to top up outside of the festival??

Thanks!

Yes it’s very simple. You have bracelet that has a chip on it. You add money to the chip through the app on your phone. You can enable autorenew as well. Whatever you have left in your balance, you get a refund from them after you request it from their website.

Thank you!!! Do we get the bracelets when you get first get onto the festival site or do you have to get them before?

You get them when you first enter the festival by showing your paper ticket

Much as I enjoyed this last year, I feel more like doing something else.

I enjoyed last year as well but I am not going since I am not a fan of the lineup this year except the Strokes. Also, them having Nekfeu again the year after all that problem with him going over his timeslot and clash with the Killers is such a disgrace. They should have banned him from the festival forever.

Went to this - thoroughly enjoyed The Strokes and the organisation of the festival with every band keeping to time on different stages. Also grateful that they pitted The 1975 against The Strokes as it meant the Strokes crowd had far fewer bellends.
