Brooklyn, we did it!

In recent years, Lollapalooza has expanded from Chicago to Chile and Brazil, and last summer the fest announced it would travel to Tel Aviv in 2013. Lollapalooza Israel, which was set for August 20-22 at Yarkon Park, has been postponed indefinitely, as The Los Angeles Times reports.

As the Times notes, in December, "Israeli news organizations reported that organizers and promoters were running into issues recruiting top-billed artists in addition to facing financial and production setbacks in setting up the festival."
