From the time he created it back in 1991, Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell has always had big ambitions for Lollapalooza.

Having evolved from a traveling music and culture tour in the ’90s into the annual Chicago music festival that’s already expanded to Chile and Brazil, Lollapalooza is ready to extend its’ international reach to Buenos Aires, Argentina, next year.

“In the same way that each child is unique born into a family, each Lollapalooza that we spawn is unique,” Farrell said of the latest expansion via Billboard. “I look forward to getting to work with the newest members of our musical family — Argentina!”

The 2014 launch in Argentina would be the third such expansion in just four years, following the Santiago, Chile, debut in 2011 and Sao Paulo, Brazil in 2012 (a planned move to Tel Aviv, Israel, for summer 2013 was scuttled back in January).

Dates and ticket information for Lollapalooza Argentina have yet to be announced.

Lollapalooza’s flagship festival in Chicago this year featured Nine Inch Nailsthe CureMumford & Sons and Lana Del Rey.
