Those who won’t be able to attend this year’s edition of Lollapalooza live are in luck, as the festival has partnered with Hulu to bring the event to viewers at home. On-demand subscribers of the streaming service will be able to watch the festival, from July 29 to August 1, at no additional cost from home. The festival and streaming service announced their partnership ahead of the event, marking the first time the two organizations are coming together for a streaming partnership.
Lollapalooza is one of the first major US festival brands to announce their return to a full capacity event, doing so after requiring attendees to provide proof that they’ve been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Anyone not vaccinated will need to show a negative test within 24 hours of attending Lollapalooza each day. The festival kicks off on Thursday July 29, and Hulu’s livestream begins with Aly & AJ playing at 2:10 p.m. EST.
For those who won’t make it to Chicago’s Grant Park, Hulu’s stream schedule can be found in full here. The festival is known for bringing together artists, influencers, and speakers from a variety of genres and backgrounds. This year’s musical lineup is no exception, and livestreams will be available from electronic acts including ILLENIUM, Kaytranada, Steve Aoki, Vintage Culture, and Oliver Heldens among others. Non-electronic featured artists include Modest Mouse, Post Malone, Tyler, the Creator, Foo Fighters, and many more.
