Jane's Addiction frontman's give-and-take festival vision

When Perry Farrell wasn’t talking about the future of music festivals yesterday he was putting his theories into practice on the Splendour in the Grass stage to glorious effect.

The Jane’s Addiction frontman and founder of the modern touring festival spoke candidly to a riveted Woodford crowd about his Lollapalooza creation yesterday morning, during a special keynote appearance.

During the question and answer session, compared by a starry eyed Wil Anderson, Farrell revealed how the Lollapalooza festival had been made totally carbon neutral to ally climate concerns.

He also outlined his vision of music festivals giving more back to the communities they are held in, in the future.

Farrell made just as big of an impact on the amphitheatre stage later in the night time session as his gang of Los Angeles rockers put on a equal parts classy, equal parts sleazy performance as the Saturday night headliner.

Showcasing new song End to the Lies, while also mining material from the band’s four previous albums, the foursome were in fine spirits, closing the show with an obligatory run through signature tune Jane Says.

Lacking the powerful bottom-end of original bassist Eric Avery, whose four string touches helped make last year’s reunion tour such a highlight, the band still managed to produce a joyous spectacle, two buxom dancers twirling from the rafters and thriving from side to side in bondage gear through much of the band’s classic era tracks.

It was the personification of the celebratory scene Farrell said was crucial to create a great rock festival.

“When you create a good festival good people will come in to listen to your cool music and then you’ve got a party on your hands,” he said earlier in the day, at the festival forum tent.

“Musicians, they’re the attraction but in the end they are really just a lure, because really what we’re looking at is hot chicks and hot guys, right?”

“[For a good festival] You have a great location, great music that is attracting really cool people, like this place,” he said.

Farrell spoke of the corporate pressures which saw Lollapalooza be reduced from the classic touring format to a one-off show.

But he was optimistic about the future of music festivals, calling for organisers to give back more to communities where the events are held worldwide.

“I would like to see music [festivals] work closer with the government to do everything from bringing music programs back into schools to beautifying the cities [they are held in],” he said before calling for a percentage of the profits from festivals going back to the hosting communities throughout the world.

Ever thinking of the future of the concept, Farrell revealed he had plans in store for a game-changing festival to be announced next year, but was guarded about what exactly that would entail.

“Next year I am going to be building yet another festival concept that I think is going to elevate what we’ve done in festivals so far,” he said.

“It is going to elevate it to a degree that I can safely say you’ve never seen before.”

Farrell’s decision to make Lollapalooza, which draws 90,000 people each day for three days to the US city of Chicago, carbon neutral touched on an earlier forum discussion on modern protest songs and how artists can spread the message of climate change featuring local federal MP Wyatt Roy.

BEEN CAUGHT STEALING A CROWD – JANE’S ADDICTION

In what must have been a deflating site for Perry Farrell and co, the Amphitheatre retained only a sparse crowd when Jane’s Addiction took to the main stage for their headline set on day two of Splendour In The Grass. Perhaps it was simply two years too late for the rock legends to entice their fans to Woodford, or maybe the generational split at this year’s event meant that the dominate under 25 crowd were simply more interested in PNAU, but either way when Jane’s Addiction hit the stage for a spectacular set opener on Saturday, there was only a small crowd their to bare witness.

And what an opener it was. A black curtain dropped dramatically to reveal Jane’s Addiction in all their puffed up glory, and two semi-naked dancers twirling on wires above their heads. The band launched into a huge set, that while not as hit-heavy as their last appearance Down Under was delivered with an energy that only Perry Farrell and Dave Navaro can bring.

Farrell pranced and gyrated around the stage, climbing up to lick the legs of the dancers, who having been lowered back to earth, would spend the rest of the set simulating various sexual acts on the band members and dancing on a podium.

Been Caught Stealing produced a huge reaction and, despite the deflated crowd numbers, the band pushed their performance to the very limits. Farrell bantered and swigged, while Navaro moved around the stage flexing and thrashing. At one point Farrell paused between songs to ask the crowd if he could call them Brisbane. When they screamed back “No, call us Splendour!” he retorted “Is that Sabla? Ok I’ll call you Sabla, it’s good to be here Sabla!”

Before the final song the band exited so that chairs and steel drums could be dragged to the front of the stage for set finisher Jane Says. Before launching into the crowd favourite Perry threw the crowd his best line of the night, “Who has fucked in their tents yet? It’s fun to fuck anywhere, especially tents. So have a good fuck on me would you, a tent fuck that is!”

I listened to that freaking stream all day yesterday and well into the we hours of this morning and they never played anything from Jane's show.

I'm really disappointed and curious what happened?

I did catch the interview they did with Perry and Dave so it wasn't a complete waste of time and for some odd reason I found it interesting to listen to the broadcast.

I guess it's the whole world away thing but I dunno. :noclue:
