Lollapalooza originated as the brainchild of perpetual tastemaker and visionary Perry Farrell. The traveling festival took to the road in 1991 and broke new ground in the live music landscape. Alumni such as Beck, Pearl Jam and Green Day found a place to be heard by a hungry audience of alternative music fans. In 2005, producers Capital Sports & Entertainment and Charles Attal Presents re-imagined Lollapalooza as a destination, experience-based festival along the lines of the Austin City Limits Music Festival, which the two companies created and produce.

Lollapalooza will be held August 1-3, 2008, in Chicago’s Grant Park and includes performances by Radiohead, Rage Against the Machine, Nine Inch Nails, and Chicago natives Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco and Wilco. The three-day Festival will showcase a diverse array of talent from across the globe, including The Raconteurs, Love and Rockets, Gnarles Barkley, Bloc Party, The Black Keys, Broken Social Scene, Flogging Molly, Mark Ronson and Cat Power.

What Will GRAMMY U Do for Me?
GRAMMY U students participate in a variety of events, including Up Close and Personal events, where students are able to talk to a band in a small, intimate setting; In The Mix® networking events, which focus on bringing students together to meet and share ideas; and GRAMMY SoundChecks®, which provides students with a "behind the scenes" look at touring and performing live. Other opportunities include career workshops, networking, performance and career opportunities, benefits and discounts, feedback from industry professionals, internships, and much more.

GRAMMY Behind the Scenes of Lollapalooza
"The most rewarding part about GRAMMY U has been the networking. Learning about people's experiences has helped me mentally prepare myself for this business," said San Francisco Chapter student representative Ryan Summers. "We get to choose upcoming events, we determine what we want and need. We spend thousands of dollars on our education, and for $25 a year we're gaining priceless knowledge outside of our school curriculum."

Membership is open to all full-time college students who want to pursue a career in music or in a music-related field. Majors can include, but are not limited to: Accounting, Art, Business, Communications, Journalism, Liberal Arts, Marketing, Music Business and Music Performing. Members of GRAMMY U enjoy many of the benefits offered to Voting and Associate members of The Recording Academy, but at a quarter of the cost of membership. Annual membership in GRAMMY U is at a discounted rate of $25, compared to $100 for other Academy members.

Where Can Students Find GRAMMY U?
Students and colleges can sign up through all 12 Recording Academy Chapters: Atlanta, Chicago, Florida, Los Angeles, Memphis, Nashville, New York, Pacific Northwest, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Texas, and Washington, D.C. Select universities have a faculty/staff advisor and a student representative who, with the help of the local Recording Academy staff, are responsible for the recommendation and implementation of programs and events on campus. The student representative will be the liaison between the local Chapter and the student membership, their committees and Grammy Volunteer Corp, which empowers GRAMMY U students to be active in music industry events.
