Liniker talks about the political importance of art and invites young people to vote


A veteran of Lollapalooza, Liniker, 26, is overjoyed to see the artists returning to the stage in person. The singer, who has performed at the festival twice, in 2018 and 2019, returns in 2022 to honor fellow musicians.

“The public brings us a unique energy and is kept in us. You can’t forget it and it’s exciting to be here, to relive what was in isolation for so long”, he said on the second day of Lollapalooza.

The artist is in preparation for the tour for the album “Indigo Borboleta Anil”, released in September 2021. The first show takes place at the end of April at Sesc Pinheiros, in São Paulo.

“It’s an incredible feeling to be able to see people’s faces, their expressions while we sing our songs. The stage is where we exist”, he said about the feeling of performing for the audience.

With the presidential elections approaching, Liniker also reinforced the appeal that several Brazilian artists, such as the singer Anitta, are making on social networks, so that the younger ones regularize their voter registration cards.

“I think this mobilization is extremely important, because music, culture, our body, all of this is political. From the moment people listen to our music, the lyrics that we write, and understand our messages, they need to engage to make a transformation”, he explains.

“That’s what we need to make this big change. So, I appeal to young people and everyone who doesn’t have their titles regularized: run after it. Our country needs to change”, emphasized the singer.
