See the biggest names in music, venture through hip galleries, and watch awesome acrobatics while indulging in a part of musical history.
In the early ‘90s, alternative rock ruled the world. Nirvana and Rage Against the Machine had enough die-hard fans to form a small European nation and kids watched skate videos instead of Minecraft tutorials. Lollapalooza symbolised this movement. Now it has spread its wings and become a colourful emblem of what every festival wants to be. You can see the biggest names in music, venture through hip galleries, and watch awesome acrobatics while indulging in a part of musical history.

Lollapalooza Festival 4 day full itinerary breakdown and route map
Your adventure begins with your arrival in the cultural hub of Germany, Berlin. Check into your hostel and meet up with your Busabout guide who will take you on an orientation walk of the city to better familiarise you with your new surroundings and highlight some of the amazing sights. Then you are free to discover the historic Brandenburg Gate, which has come to symbolise the hardships of both Germany and Europe’s confrontational past. Next, walk by the remains of the Berlin Wall and its most famous crossing point, Checkpoint Charlie. Later, join your Busabout guide for a night experiencing Berlin’s eclectic nightlife!
This morning feel free to relax and recharge your batteries, or head out into the city for some shopping. Of course, there’s always the self-guided food tour to help you fill up for the night. This afternoon the madness begins as we make our way to the festival grounds for our first day at Lollapalooza! Founded in the ‘90s by Jane’s Addiction band member Perry Farrell as a farewell tour, the festival has since evolved and now caters to many different musical tastes and features non-musical acts as well. Dance the night away with your fellow revellers safe in the knowledge that there is still more to enjoy tomorrow.
Make the most of the morning by exploring this dynamic city further. In addition to all the historically and culturally significant sights we also offer some great optional excursions such as selfguided foodie tours and an Alternative tour, which delves into the grungy districts and street art of this eccentric city. This afternoon we depart once more for our final night at Lollapalooza, let loose and party like there’s no tomorrow with your fellow festivalgoers! Once you’ve had your fill of bands and stage shows, return to the hostel to sleep it off.
It is with a heavy heart that we bid you ‘auf wiedersehen’ this morning after breakfast. We hope to see you again, and if you’re continuing your journey on our Hop-on Hop-off network, the next stop is Munich via Prague.
