Still basking in the afterglow of Chicago, Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell announced the festival will be heading to the Middle East next year. Lollapalooza Israel will be held at Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park from August 20-22 2013. Joining Chile and Brazil, Israel marks the 3rd international location for the festival.

“It’s like an oak seed,” Farrell explained to CNN. “You look at it and go, ‘What’s the potential of that thing?’ Put it in the ground and it starts to sprout it, and it keeps growing, and more and more branches grow out of it.”

Lollapalooza Israel will take place over the course of three weekdays; Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The show will not take place on Friday in order to avoid overlapping with the Jewish Sabbath, a tradition in which practitioners of Judaism do not listen to music, drive or use modern technology. “I don’t think it would be great to do it on a Friday night. No one would go,” said Farrell.

Farrell conquered Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park last year with his band, Jane’s Addiction. Now, he has answered requests to bring Lollapalooza to Jerusalem. “We want to bring young people, we want to change the perception of Jerusalem.’ So we’re even talking with them about it,” said Farrell.
