Lollapalooza Berlin Moves And Faces Protests

BERLIN, Germany (VIP NEWS) — Now that the Tempelhof Airport in Berlin is used as a location to accommodate refugees, the organizers of Lollapalozza have been forced to find a new site in the German capital.

After last year`s premier edition at the former airport with 40.000 visitors, the promoter has now found a new site for the event in the Treptower Park.

But since the move became public Berlin citizens have launched an online petition against the festival being held in the park. One of the protesters is also the owner of the location Die Insel; he ventured his fears in the local newspaper Berliner Morgenpost, that drunken and peeing festival goers would cause him financial losses.

The petition is signed by 2,700 people. Lollapalooza takes place on September 10th & 11th and has announced Radiohead, Kings Of Leon, Major Lazer and Paul Kalkbrenner as headliners.
