Perry Farrell Lays Out Lolla Lineups, Plan to Save the Music Biz
While planning these festivals in South America, how much have you been reminded of the first few in the early '90s?
A lot! The people down there are so enthusiastic about music because they're starved for all the talent that we almost take for granted here. When I first got down there, they were asking, "Can you get the Cure?" The Cure? I mean, even 15 years ago they were kinds past their prime. And after this year, when we deliver Calvin Harris and Skrillex, it's over. They're going to be shoulder to shoulder with the rest of the world as far as musical sophistication is concerned.
