It’s kind of an odd reaction considering his stage at Lollapalooza, called Perry’s Stage, hosts primarily dance music. However, Farrell has stated that he’s a total fan of house music, just not the EDM scene.
“When they said they wanted to name a stage after me (at Lollapalooza in 2005), I was honored. I like the adulation. But now you say, ‘Perry, what’s going on with your area here?'” the former Jane’s Addiction frontman asked.
“Believe me, I’ve got questions myself. I hate EDM. I want to vomit it out of my nostrils. I can’t stand what it did to what I love, which is house music, which was meditative, psychedelic,” Farrell elaborated. “It took you on a journey. I sometimes cringe at my own festival.”Read more to see what the other Lollapalooza co-founder had to say:
