„We paint the music you love to hear“- will be a unique fusion of music and art! In a joint project by the URBAN NATION MUSEUM FOR URBAN CONTEMPORARY ART and the Lollapalooza Festival, three popular artists will design a giant installation at the Berlin Olympic Stadium.

The cooperation between Lollapalooza and URBAN NATION started in 2015. We are again part of the melting pot of international art scenes and culture world in 2018.

Lollapalooza Berlin and URBAN NATION’s mutual creative drive and exchange is a unique experience which catapults the festival to new creative heights. The festival turns into a walk-in gallery turning the festival site into both a vernissage and a finissage.

The enormous art installation „We paint the music you love to hear“ is a cooperation between three main headliner of the festival and three phenomenal street artists. The artists will transform a song, the band history or designs of former album covers into a huge art work.

The canadian artist, who is famous for her collage technique, which frequently highlights epic battle scenes ripped from the pages of actual comic books, will work together with the american band The National.
