Lollapalooza 2010 Preps for Lady Gaga with $250K Stage Setup

Lady Gaga spends $250,000 on festival stage [The List]

Lady Gaga’s Lollapalooza set cost $250,000.

Organisers of the three-day Chicago music event were so desperate to keep the `Poker Face’ hitmaker happy they shelled out $100,000 on a giant stage and an additional $150,000 on her production requirements.

Event organiser Perry Farrell told MTV: “We spent like $100,000 to give her a giant stage. We spent close to $150,000 to house the production she’s gonna do. And I say yeah, let’s do it.”

If I were attending the festival this year, I’d wonder how much of the money I was dropping on my ticket would be going to this level of extravagance. I wonder if the Strokes got any money for their stage setup considering they’re playing the festival opposite Gaga…
