The team behind iconic US festival Lollapalooza has announced plans to run a three-day sister event in Tel Aviv next year.
The festival was launched in 1991 by Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell as a nationwide rock music tour of the US before evolving into a single-location annual event staged at Chicago's Grant Park in 2004.
But organisers have now decided to branch out to Israel in 2013 following the success of trial festivals in Chile last year and Brazil this year.
They announced that the Tel Aviv festival will be held between August 20 and 22 at Hayarkon Park.
"Lollapalooza Israel will be the first-ever large-scale international music festival in the country and will provide the same world-class experience that fans across the globe have come to expect," a statement from Farrell read.
"Tel Aviv is widely recognised as an international culture capital and is known across the world for its art, architecture, and bustling night-life."
